Winter In Seattle

Winter came to Seattle on March 1.

That was the day that the LTD Gallery opened its latest show, featuring artwork inspired by A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE.

I had been hoping to be there in person for the opening, but alas, there's too much work to do and too little time, so I had to stay home and miss it.  But don't you guys in Seattle and nearby environs (Vancouver, Portland, Eugene, what have you) make the same mistake.  The show will be open until March 23, and it looks as though there's some great stuff there.  Check out the piece in WIRED>

It's great to see a gallery like LTD featuring fantasy art.  Those of you lucky enough to see the show, do come back here afterwards and let us know how you enjoyed it, and what your favorite pieces were.

Farewell to the Iron Islands

Fans of fake history rejoice.  I am finally done with the Iron Islands.

 And why does that make me so pleased?  Well, because it was the last little bit I had to write for our long-awaited and much-postponed concordance, THE WORLD OF ICE & FIRE.  Which we've been working on (along with many other things) lo, these many years.  ((And yes, yes, it's late, what else is new?  Please do not blame my faithful collaborators, Elio Garcia and Linda Antonsson.  They finished their part ages ago, and tossed the ball to me.  What can I say?  I remain as slow as ever.  And I added a lot.))

Anyway, it's done at last.  At least the writing part.  Now it is all in the hands of the artists, and our valiant editor Anne Groell.  (This will be a coffee table book, heavily and lavishly illustrated, so there's LOTS of art)).

Assuming we don't run into any problems with the art, THE WORLD OF ICE AND FIRE will be released this fall.  October, I think, but don't quote me on that.

And HEY, this means another monkey is off my back.  Only a couple left gibbering up there now.  That little joker monkey, HIGH STAKES.  And… gulp…

The Bar Is Open!

Hey, you guys missed the fun.

Our bar opening at the Jean Cocteau was a huge success.  In no small part thanks to Ernie Cline (author of the wonderful READY PLAYER ONE), who turned up with his time machine… ah.. customized DeLorean.  And our own Doc Brown… ah… Jules.

Take a look.  (Photos by Tara Gibbens)





Miss it?  Don't worry.   Doc Brown will be bringing his DeLorean back in a few weeks… for BACK TO THE FUTURE 2.

(Oh, and our Flux Capacitor Cocktail was a big hit too).
