Entre esto y lo de Sapkowski voy a sacar un músculo impresionante, acarreando tochos de libros para que me los firmen…
Editado: ayer hice una pregunta en su blog sobre si habría límites al número de firmas que podría llevarse cada persona, y resulta que me ha contestado su mujer, Parris:
«usually there’s a limit, depends on the store and other factors. If you are coming to a bookstore signing with your own copies, please buy something there to help support the store which is spending a lot of time and money to have George come and visit.
Depending on the store’s policies and the size of the crowd, usually you can get the limit signed, then go back to the end of the line and go through again. Or get a friend to come with you and split the books.
Since George will be signing books for many folks, with names that are unfamiliar to him, it would be a polite gesture to take a large card and print your name neatly to give him to copy from as he signs your books.»
Y esta es mi respuesta:
«Thank you, Parris, those are really some nice tips, particularly the last one. Too many times I have assumed american people are familiar with the spanish names due to the amount of latin-american people settled in the USA, but I found out they are not so.
Of course you can count on me bringing a good size card with my name printed in good sized letters. I would be ashamed if George would have to force his eyes to read it… I don’t want to be responsible of making him go slower on his writing due to that!!!
Thank you again, Parris, and hope to meet you in Madrid too ;-)»
Y efectivamente… ¡Conocimos a George R.R. Martin en persona!
