Raymond E. Feist and George R.R. Martin coming to Supanova Australia this year!

  • Posted by admin on Feb 04 2013

Well, it’s official folks! 2013 is shaping up to be Voyager Australia’s biggest event year EVER. Not only is Raymond E. Feist’s generation-spanning saga of Pug the Magician coming full cycle this year, but he will be touring Australia in June, including 2 big Supanovas in Sydney and Perth! But wait, there’s more! Everyone’s favourite Greek fisherman’s cap wearing author of A Song of Ice and Fire, and probably the biggest fantasy author in the world right now, George R.R. Martin will be coming to Supanova in November as well!

Here’s Supanova’s official statement yesterday: “And in another coup for fans of literature, our triple play of authors is complete with our June star just outing himself today as well. We have Tad Williams in April, George R.R. Martin in November, and now it gives us the pleasure of allowing him to out himself, the imperious chronicler of one of the world’s favourite fantasy-lands, The Magician’s, Raymond E. Feist! In an additional supa-bonus, not only can Supanova fans catch him at our expos in Sydney and Perth, but fans in Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne will also have their chance to see him (details to be confirmed). Its going to be epic!”

AND Raymond E Feist’s post on his Facebook page:

See more Early tour info: OK, this is what I know this weekend.  I’ll be passing along more info when I get it. Don’t ask if I am coming to your city because I don’t know.  Don’t ask if there’s a chance, because I don’t know. In March, I will be in Brussels Belgium at the Fantasy Festival called Trolls et Légendes on the 29th through the 31st.  I will be in Paris on the 1st of April, but I do not know …if we’re doing public appearances of media only. In the US I will be at Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego on the 17th of May.  Other US cities will be Houston, TX: Murder by the Book on the 21st, and University Bookstore at UW in Seattle on the 23rd.  We may be adding two more cities.  Information as followed.  I will also be attending the San Diego Comic in July, specific day and time TBA. I will be in the UK/Ireland (?) beginning May 4th and leaving May 12th.  Cities, venues, and times to be announced.  London, obviously, Manchester and Birmingham (likely) others could be anywhere. Lastly, I will be doing two Supernova Expos in Australia, Sydney and Perth, as well as other cities in Australia and New Zealand.   I’ll be in New Zealand on the 19th and 20th of June.  I’ll be at Sydney Supernova on the 22nd and 23rd, then to Brisbane on the 24th, Melbourne on the 25 or 26th, Adelaide on the 28 (TBC), then on to Perth for Supernova on the 29 and 30th. That’s what I have so far. When I get more information I’ll post it.”

The books so far...and now, on George's website, a sample from Book 6, The Winds of Winter!

George R.R. Martin has a special treat for all A Song of Ice and Fire fans… a new excerpt up on his website from The Winds of Winter! I’m sure that all GRRM-fans will agree that this is the perfect antidote to back-to-work/January blues, and a great way to kick off 2013.

This time, George offers us a tantalizing sample chapter from the point of view of Arianne Martell, Princess of Dorne…
