GRRM’s official site has once more been updated. He notes (as we have already reported) that his TorCon speech has been printed by Asimov’s Science Fiction magazine. He also mentions several upcoming foreign-language editions of various books, including new Swedish editions of A Song of Ice and Fire!
GRRM’s official site has been updated once again, following the reactions to his previous update. This update includes a response from GRRM, since he is unable to personally respond to all those who have mailed. It also includes some more news about the progress of A Feast for Crows.
Oh, and a well-chosen new banner. ;)

The latest coin has come out of the Shire Post mint—a brothel token!
The Brotherhood Without Banners, an unofficial fan club for GRRM’s works, had the rare distinction of being highlighted in a Wired.com Worldcon pictorial, with a photo of the ASoIaF board members Caress of Cersei and Chataya.
Mike S. Miller, artist for the Dabel Brother Production’s "The Hedge Knight" adaptation, has set up an Ebay store where he plans to sell original art from the comic. The first lot are pages from the adaptation of an excerpt from "The Sworn Sword" contained in "The Hedge Knight" trade collection.
These last few days, GRRM has been attending this years WorldCon, and from people attending we have learned the following:
Although the RPG is not quite finished yet, it appears that Guardians of Order will still be running a few Game of Thrones-related events at GenCon, starting Thursday (19/8). Check out their GenCon schedule for more details.
George R.R. Martin: A RRetrospective has been nominated for a World Fantasy Award in the Best Collection category.
Late August/Early September will see the publication of the October issue of Asimov’s Science Fiction magazine, which will contain a memoir by GRRM titled "The Heart of a Small Child".
Subterranean Press, the makers of GRRM: A RRetrospective, will also be producing a limited edition of GRRM’s Fevre Dream. This book can be pre-ordered straight from Subterranean Press or from Clarkesworld Books.
As owners of the RRetrospective (bought from Clarkesworld Books, who made sure it arrived in perfect condition) as well as another edition of Fevre Dream, we can thoroughly recommend both the quality of books from Subterranean Press and the novel itself.
