George RR Martin (grrm), author of the A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy series, as well as much else, is going to be visiting Ireland, both north and south, in November 2009. He's visiting the set of HBO's pilot of A Game Of Thrones, which is being filmed in Northern Ireland, and while he's over he'll be doing a signing in Eason's in Belfast on Tuesday 3rd November at 1.00pm, and will be be signing in Eason's in O'Connell Street, Dublin, on Thursday 5th November at 5.00pm.
There are plans to have a 'moot' or general get-together after both signings, although plans have not been completely finalised as to time and place. However, there is an ongoing discussion about the proposed Belfast Moot here, and about the proposed Dublin Moot here.
I imagine that myself and some of my colleagues from A.N. Other Dublin bookshop will no doubt make our way along to the Dublin Moot, so will see you there, if you're there!
