George R.R. Martin, author of the fantasy series (not sci-fi) A Song of Ice and Fire series (A Game of Thrones, etc.) has such an engaging blog. He posts frequently, and even discusses his love of football and his thoughts during the season.
When I read he was clearing his shelves and had 1980s copies of his book Nightflyers, and he would autograph them, I jumped all over it. I've been interested to try sci-fi and since I've loved his fantasy series with A Game of Thrones and A Clash of Kings (reviews coming soon), I thought I'd have good luck with this as well.
I know he's got a ton of fans and has an assistant(s), but I'm pretty confident he signed this copy just for me...! Right?
