Made it across the pond safely. Parris got her first platter of fish ‘n chips last night, and pronounced it ghood. Today we’re recovering from jet lag.

Off Again

Seems as though I just got back from Toronto, and tomorrow I am off again — this time for England and Portugal.

The UK comes first. Signings in Bath and London (details on my website), a visit to the London Book Fair, and best of all, EASTERCON at Heathrow. I hope I will see some of you there, and we can hoist a pink or three.

And from there it’s on to Portugal, and appearances in Lisbon and Porto. Not nearly as long as visit as I’d like, but I’m looking forward to it.

I don’t often log on while on the road, so posts here will be few and far between for the next few weeks. Though Ty may drop in from time to time with some announcements.

Back home just in time for the NFL Draft!

I expect that the UK will be a No Tebow Zone. That will be a relief.

Sure, we all do.

Here are some copies of the Game of Thrones graphic novel that you can win for free.

No, No, No

I was drinking my morning coffee when the headline flashed across the bottom of the screen. That sound you heard was me choking and sputtering.

My Jets have given up two perfectly good draft picks for Tim Tebow, the worst quarterback in the National Football League.


What the hell are they thinking over there at Gang Green central?

Mark Sanchez is not, as yet, Eli Manning, but he is a talented quarterback with a good arm and he completes more than fifty per cent of his passes, none of which can be said for Tebow. The last thing he needs is a stadium full of Timomaniacs screaming for Tebow every time a pass falls incomplete. The divisions in the Jets locker room last season were well documented. THis is just going to make those problems a thousand times worse.

Nor do I think that Tebow’s conspicuous piety will play well in the Big Apple. This is the city that once embraced Broadway Joe. Tebow would fit better in… well, if Branson, Missouri had an NFL team, that would be a perfect fit.

Knoxvillians, you have a dragon in town.

Really cool, I think.

All this gallivanting around Canada (well, Toronto) is well and good, but it’s kept me away from my computer, and I’m falling behind in showing you all the cool new trailers that HBO has been rolling out for the second season of GAME OF THRONES.

So here’s a new one, called “The More You Love.”

<lj-embed id=”286″/>

April 1 is right around the corner. No foolin’!
