This montage element was Oxford Art Journal 22, Nr. Wherever they came from, and whenever they made the crossing, all of my immigrant ancestors faced hardships, poverty, and discrimination when they came here.
They came looking for freedom, they came looking for a better life. And they found it, or made it… and in the process they stopped being Irish or Italian or German and became Americans. The process is still going on today. Men and women dreaming of a better life still look to America, and cross oceans and deserts by whatever means they can to find that better life. They face hardships and discrimination as well. Not everyone welcomes them. Some talk of walls, of keeping people out, of sending them back. My ancestors faced the same sort of talk.
Millard Fillmore is dead and forgotten, but the Know Nothing Party is alive and well today, under other names. They still know nothing. But some of us remember where we came from. Some of us remember that it was the immigrants, those tired poor huddled masses, who made America great to begin with. Even if it worked, the price would be too high, but of course it does not work.
It has never worked. As much as I hate flying… or rather, what flying has become, thanks to the airlines and the TSA… I love long drives. Seeing the country as you pass through it, rather than just flying over it. Road trips are especially great if you can get off the Interstates. And to escape the LA heat as well. But the amount of crap that has piled up in my absence is daunting. Even with three assistants, I am falling further and further behind, and more and more stuff keeps getting dumped on my plate. Somehow just walking back into my office after a trip sends my stress level ratcheting up to ten.
I was away from my computer three days, and emails accumulated in my absence. I really do not like talking about questions I am still wrestling with on a work in progress. Art is not a democracy, and these are problems I need to solve myself. Having a few hundred readers weigh in with their thoughts and opinions — which seems to be what happens whenever I post here about DWD — does not advance the process.
Since the very beginning of this series, I have been guilty of being over-optimistic about how long it would take me to finish the next book, the next chapter, or the series as a whole. I cannot deny that. I have always been bad with deadlines… one reason why I did my best to avoid them for the first fifteen years of my career. I am sick and tired of people jumping down my throat when I miss them.
Some of you hate my other projects. These are the kinds of things I grapple with. No comments necessary, really. These sorts of things are best resolved by me and my muse, sometimes assisted by my editors. Just felt like rambling a little. The new chapter is actually an old chapter. The first draft was, at any rate. This is for those who complain I never blog about my work. I do, but not often. Every writer needs to learn to create his own characters, worlds, and settings. But he asked for permission first: It it does bother me that people hear I wrote fan fiction, and take that to mean I wrote stories about characters taken from the work of other writers without their consent.
Consent, for me, is the heart of this issue. If a writer would prefer not to allow that… well, I think their wishes should be respected. Terry was one of our greatest fantasists, and beyond a doubt the funniest. He was as witty as he was prolific I cannot claim to have known Terry well, but I ran into him at dozens of conventions over the decades, shared a stage with him a few times, and once or twice had the privilege of sharing a pint or a curry.
He was always a delight. A bright, funny, insightful, warm, and kindly man, a man of infinite patience, a man who truly knew how to enjoy life… and books. This was the 66th annual Emmy Awards. Many have been nominated, yes. None have ever won. I attended the very first comicon ever held, incidentally.
It was all in one room too, in a Greenwich Village hotel in Steve Ditko, Fabulous Flo Steinberg, and twenty or thirty high school kids, myself among them. If we only knew where it would lead… […] San Diego Comicon pretty much filled up the entire city of San Diego. Huge, overwhelming, exhausting, a bit scary… one runs out of adjectives. The concom took very good care of me, however, and I had a great time signing, speaking, sweating it was bloody HOT in San Diego , and tromping up and down the length of the San Diego Convention Center, past hundreds of booths and displays, a giant Lego Batman, and other sights too numerous to mention.
There was a very hot Wonder Woman wandering around one day, and an equally hot Mazda RX-8 on display at the Top Cow booth, both of which I lusted after. None of us [writers] are exactly strangers to public speaking. Some writers have a standard speech for all occasions, a one-size-fits-all sort of talk. Others write a new speech every year or two. I confess, I have resorted to all those dodges in my time, at one con or another. A worldcon is different, though. I attended my first worldcon in Noreascon I, in Boston. What can I say?
It was my second con, my first worldcon. In those days, the Hugo Awards were presented at a banquet. I did not have the money to buy a banquet ticket I was sleeping on the floor of a fan friend, since I did not have the money for a hotel room either , but they let the non-ticket-holders into the balcony afterwards, and I got to watch Robert Silverberg present the Hugos. Silverbob was elegant, witty, urbane, the winners were thrilled, everyone was well-dressed, and by the end of the evening I knew 1 I wanted to be a part of this world, and 2 one day, I wanted to win a Hugo. I had it bad.
I had already been writing and publishing science fiction for six years, many of the stories set against the same future history, a very loose background I later named the Thousand Worlds. Novels were long and scary, but I finally decided I was ready to tackle one in I wrote the entire thing start to finish before giving it to my agent to sell. By any title, it was a Thousand Worlds book, probably the culmination of that phase of my career.
A melancholy, romantic, elegiac sort of novel it was, but then I was a melancholy romantic myself in those days. No one even knew I was writing a novel until I sent the completed book to Kirby to sell. No contracts, no deadlines, no one waiting. My life and career have developed a frightening momentum. I remember once, when I was out in Hollywood, someone described working on a weekly television series as being akin to madly laying rails as the locomotive roars full steam up the tracks just behind you.
Lose a day here and a week there, and suddenly that damn train is rolling over you. Heinlein once said he could not possibly pay back all those who helped him when he was starting out, so he believed in paying forward, and helping those who came after him. I really really really need to learn to say No.
No, I will not come to your convention, thanks for asking. No, I will not write a story for your anthology, I am a year behind writing stories for my own anthologies. No, I will not do an interview. When I turned up at the party with them in hand, Gardner was waiting with a spray can of whipped cream. He nailed me instead the door, turning my head into a sundae.
He even had a maraschino cherry to put on top. Sadly, no one seems to have taken a picture. I did get my revenge years later, when Gargy began winning Hugos every year. That double win had endangered my status as a loser, Gardner warned me, but I returned to his good graces the next year at Denvention II, when I lost again, this time to Gordy Dickson. The parties went on, but I was no longer the one doing them. I was puzzled recently when one of my readers emailed me to ask what I thought about what Marvel had done to Spider-Man.
I hate this, and judging from the discussions I am seeing on various blogs, I am not alone. The DC universe has never really recovered from the Crisis on Infinite Earths, despite all the Crises that have followed, and I think the Marvel universe, and Spidey in particular, will be a long time recovering from this decision.
If I had a rotten tomato, I would throw it. Might change the story some. No words to work with, just their mouth, eyes, facial expressions. I know there are aspiring actors and actresses reading this. You guys have all my empathy. Good luck to all of you. A few years ago, I got a very nice email from a reader who wanted to know more about the vocabulary and syntax of High Valyrian. I actually met a deadline.

Today, as it happens. So that scene, and the encounter with the clansmen, was written by David and Dan. He has met most actors, and likes Sibel Kekilli: What an amazing, talented, courageous young woman. And yes, I confess it: He later came to Hamburg for a reading, and she returned the favor: Touring MiniatureLand in Hamburg.
Biggest toy train set in the world, but the landscapes and miniatures dwarf the trains. Very glad my hosts took me to see this. Hanging with Sibel Kekilli and her boyfriend, and my German publicist, Sebastian. Hamburg stays up later than Santa Fe, you will be surprised to learn, but chile con queso is nowhere to be found. We drank White Russians while huddled under blankets in an outdoor cafe. Took a canal boat tour as well. Many of you reading this blog today are presumably science fiction and fantasy fans. It would probably shock you to know how many of your favorite writers have no health insurance whatsover.
Most midlist writers struggle to get by even at the best of times; lean times can be lean indeed. Whenever I make one of these political posts, I always get a rush of emails. Those last just make me sad. Not because I have lost a reader, but because such people seem deliberately intent on closing their eyes and shutting down their minds. I grew up reading Robert A. Heinlein, after all, and still have been known to read works by Orson Scott Card, Dan Simmons, Larry Niven, and others whose political views are worlds away from my own.
I was never a warrior. But I have written a good deal about war and warriors, and read even more about those subjects.

Let me banish all reality shows from the air! Oh, and you movie studios… no more replacing screenwriters at the drop of a hat. It should as hard to replace the writer as it is to replace the director. The film is by both of them, not just one. And every TV series should be required to take X amount of pitches from freelancer writers and beginners. That used to be mandated by the WGA, and way back when it was how a lot of newcomers got their foot in the door, but these days most shows find ways around it, and breaking in is harder than ever.
Oh, I attended a Westercon in El Paso a few years back, and spent an afternoon in Juarez with some other fans and writers. But that hardly counts. He often blogs about the movies, and he invites writers and artists like Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman to give readings. The Jean Cocteau is a small Santa Fe art house, with a single screen and seats. It was built in the early 70s as the Collective Fantasy, became the Cocteau later in that decade, went through several local owners who ran it well, and finally became part of the Trans-Lux chain.
They closed it in April, , when they shut down their entire chain of theaters. I saw a lot of movies at the Cocteau between , when I moved to Santa Fe, and , when it closed. I like the idea of bringing it back, better than ever. I will not be doing it myself, of course. These gigantic corporations, most of which could buy North Korea with pocket change, are declining to show a film because Kim Jong-Un objects to being mocked? The level of corporate cowardice here astonishes me. Even Sony, which made the movie, is going along. I have no idea how good or bad a film it is.
It might be hilarious. It might be stupid and offensive and outrageous. It might be all of the above. Yeah, I bought a bowling alley.

Except… well… not really. So essentially I bought a huge empty derelict building some 33, square feet and a big parking lot. The building, instead, will be used for art… not a traditional gallery, now, but a very exciting and innovative interactive art space. The exhibits will be designed and installed by Meow Wolf, a collective of forty-odd some very odd artists here in Santa Fe who have been doing some amazing things over the past decade, but have never had a permanent home before. Connie Willis and David Gerrold are both friends of mine. I have known David since the early 70s, Connie since the late 70s.
Connie, actually, is avery goodfriend of mine. Kage Baker has died. The reports of my vast power and influence within the field seem to be greatly exaggerated. So far as I can tell, my effect on the Hugo nominations is exactly nil. There has been much debate of late about the value of a Hugo. Back in , no one was thinking that way. Look at those first awards, and you can see what the rocket is all about.
Also, they come with a really cool trophy. More power to them. Instead they seem to want to take the Hugos and turn them into their own awards. Straight white men are being excluded. Go look at the last five, ten years of Hugo ballots. Count how many men were nominated. Count how many women. Now count the black writers and the Asian writers and the foreign-language writers. Yes, yes, things are changing.
We have a lot more women and minorities being nominated than we did in , say, or even … but the ballots are still way more white and way more male than not. I am in favor of diversity, of inclusion, of bringing writers from many different backgrounds and cultures into the field. My own politics are liberal… which means I lean left, but not way over to the fringe left.
Freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom to dissent, all of that has always been central to my political attitudes. The freedom of the artist to create should be absolute. I have always been against censorship, silencing, McCarthyism. The McCarthy period, a particular fascination of mine, was one of the blackest eras in American history. It should be noted, since idiots always misunderstand this point, that freedom of speech does not mean you can say whatever you want wherever you want.
If you want to proclaim that you are the new messiah or call for ethnic cleansing of Martians or even promote your new book, I think you should be able to stand on a soapbox in the park, or start your own website, and do just that. Unlike me, she might even accept that label. She cares about social justice. She hates sexism, racism, misogyny.
She wants our field to be more inclusive. She has fought her own battles, as an engineer writing hard SF, and being told that women could not write hard SF. Laura is well to the left of me. And yet she did this, devoted months to it, uncounted amounts of efforts… because someone had to, because lives and careers were being ruined, because people were being hurt. I hope she gets a Hugo. You would be surprised at how little that means.
I cannot control what anyone else says or does, or make them stop saying or doing it, be it on the fannish or professional fronts. I want to single out the postings of Eric Flint. The latest, at http: Flint says what I would have said, if I had the time or the energy, but he says it better than I ever could. What do I know about this Interweb thingie? I still tie messages to the legs of ravens. On some of the foreign trips, I did entire days of interviews.
Some of the journalists were very sharp. A few made me wonder what the hell has happened to the standards of the profession that I once got my degrees in, back at Northwestern. Especially when they all ask the same damn questions. Tyrion is my favorite character. Please do not blame my faithful collaborators, Elio Garcia and Linda Antonsson. They finished their part ages ago, and tossed the ball to me. I remain as slow as ever. And I added a lot. Longest episode of the season. As are other cable shows.
Why do so many people in this country go mad at the sight of a nipple? As the subject of these essays, I will be the first to admit that I have a skewed perspective here. Nonetheless, I think [James] Lowder put together a strong, balanced, and diverse collection of essays, and the quality of writing here was distinctly higher than in some similar volumes. Read it for yourself, and decide. Yes, I am attached to the project, as an Executive Producer.
I am pleased and excited to confirm that much. I have three shows in various stages of development under the aegis of my overall deal with HBO. I have an overall deal with HBO, and three new television concepts in various stages of development, with a variety of collaborators and partners. I am consulting on a couple of videogames. I see that this new crop of stories also raises, once again, the notion of concluding the series with one or more feature films. And in some of these stories, once again, this idea is wrongly attributed to me.
Let me state, yet again, that while I love this idea, it did NOT originate with me. It was a notion suggested to me, which I have enthusiastically endorsed… but since I was the first person to raise the possibility in public, somehow I am being seen as its father. Sure, I love the idea. What fantasist would not love the idea of going out with an epic hundred million feature film?
And the recent success of the IMAX experience shows that the audience is there for such a movie. If we build it, they will come. But will we build it? I have no bloody idea. It has always been my intent to write a whole series of novellas about Dunk and Egg, chronicling their entire lives. At various times in various interviews I may have mentioned seven novellas, or ten, or twelve, but none of that is set in stone.
There will be as many novellas as it takes to tell their tale, start to finish. But only the three mentioned have been published to date. Three, in the novel. One, in the movie. None, in real life: The show is the show, the books are the books; two different tellings of the same story. There have been differences between the novels and the television show since the first episode of season one. And for just as long, I have been talking about the butterfly effect. Small changes lead to larger changes lead to huge changes.
Or journeys, as the case may be. Sometimes butterflies grow into dragons. Unfortunately, the writing did not go as fast or as well as I would have liked. And as spring turned to summer, I was having more bad days than good ones. Around about August, I had to face facts: I was not going to be done by Halloween. I cannot tell you how deeply that realization depressed me. I will confess, I do wish I could clone myself, or find a way to squeeze more hours into the day, or a way to go without sleep. But this is what it is, so I keep on juggling. At least not immediately. What we do have here is an order for four — now five — pilotscripts.
How many pilots will be filmed, and how many series might come out of that, remains to be seen. His only major hospital stay was in Most of it was spent in a bed in St. Parris took me in to the hospital emergency room on the morning of Christmas Eve, and they admitted me almost immediately after diagnosis. It seems I had a raging e-coli infection of my urinary tract. Urosepsis, they called it. But I am on the mend now, and I expect to be back to my old self by the end of the month at the latest, and back to work well before that. He has been watching J.
No spoilers here, just a resounding thumbs down. I sure hope those guys doing LOST have something better up planned for us. I know that by that point, J. No English editon yet. I will talk about the merits and problems of this later. But — and this is why I said that this is not a normal book, at all — he needs pages to make a bigger, more abstract point: John Grisham Rezensionen auf Goodreads Link …vergleichbar mit u.
Sam behauptet, er wurde am fraglichen Tag von seiner Mutter abgeholt. Ich las es nicht: Es spielt in naher Zukunft auf der Erde und passt, glaube ich, nicht hier ins Thema. Es erschien bei Heyne, nicht wie sonst bei Suhrkamp. Fischer, gelesen; erscheint erst Ende August. Martin from reading his entire blog. I loved loved loved it. The movie got very little notice from the world at large, but I loved loved loved it.
A perennial Emmy contender, yet it never seems to get any notice at Hugo time. Great show, I think. The second season was even better than the first. Love Steve Buschemi as Nucky especially. The undead are well represented. Best police show ever, imnsho. And for something truly from left field, the always witty crime romcom CASTLE has been known to wander into [science fiction] from time to time.
Talk about a gut punch. Walter White is a bigger monster than anyone in Westeros. I need to do something about that. A lovely piece of work, I thought, and — again — faithful to the source material a big thing with me. I thought it was excellent. The actresses in the leading roles were all terrific, and the male characters were pretty nuanced as well; the show portrayed the sexism of the times, and the indignities the women were forced to put up with, without falling into the trap of painting all the men as monsters and assholes. Good writing and good acting, and hey, I loved the music and the clothes as well what can I say?
And Ilikeshows about journalism. Wish there were more of them. It was just getting started, and then it was over. More impressive than the film, I think. The puppetry is magical. Truth be told, I sometimes get bored during car chases. I am a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino and not just because he owns a movie theatre too. Terrific adaptation of a classic story by Ted Chiang. Brilliant performance from Amy Adams.
She is always great, I think, but this was her best role to date. A real science fiction story, not a western in space. Intelligent, thought-provoking, with some wonderfully alien aliens. Count me with those who loved it. I think this is a great film. AND a great and faithful adaptation of the novel, which is not necessarily the same thing. Not only one of the greatest fantasy films ever made ignore that bloody soundtrack please , but one of the great romances as well.
I want to go to the island of Santorini and have a menage a trois with Darryl Hannah and Valerie Quinessen. He makes some great political points here, but even if you disagree with every one of those, there are a lot of laughs as well. A very fun read, a great new character for the Marvel universe. A couple reviewers are calling it the best Marvel movie ever.
Doctor Strange was probably my favorite single character… well, him or Spider-Man, both drawn by Steve Ditko, whose art I loved. How much did I love Doctor Strange? But it is so damned good, so original and so human, that I cannot imagine that it is not one of the best five. Heinlein would have won it every year from until his death. I had never read anything like it, and from the moment I finished I wanted more; more Heinlein, more science fiction, more aliens and spacesuits and starships… more of the vast interstellar vistas that had opened before me.
It made me a SF reader for life. For decades thereafter, RAH was my favorite writer. Clarke, Poul Anderson, and so many more. Did I mention Jack Vance? I yield to no one in my admiration for Robert A. I grew up reading [conservative author] Robert A. Heinlein, and still have been known to read works by [conservative-to-reactionary authors] Orson Scott Card, Dan Simmons, Larry Niven, and others whose political views are worlds away from my own. Classic Sci-Fi and Fantasy: My own top three [Hugo Winners? Luminaries as Theodore Sturgeon, Donald A. Heinlein won it four times.
Jack Vance, our greatest living SF and fantasy writer. The Vance books were even better than I remembered them.
