George R.R. Martin has given a lengthy response on the situation with Dabel Brothers Production’s 2009 A Song of Ice and Fire calendar. Many who have ordered it are still awaiting copies, especially those who paid for a deluxe edition signed by GRRM. George has explained what he knows and answers the most common questions, while promising to do everything he can from his end to speed up the process of fixing the situation. He reiterates that DB Pro have the license for the 2010 and 2011 calendars as well, and that Michael Kaluta is hard at work on the illustrations for the next calendar.
