That’s no sea captain George R. R. Martin has been called the “American Tolkien” by Time magazine. HBO’s bloody, lusty, Peabody Award–winning Thrones, will visit Seattle this July for a reading at Town Hall. Though Thrones TV is only two seasons/books in, Martin is currently working on the sixth of seven installments, The Winds of Winter, which he’ll preview here. (He’s also teasing chapters on his website, if you just can’t wait.) No publication date set yet, but speaking for everyone who just finished reading his 1,016-page fifth novel, we need a little time off to, you know, buy groceries, or read a magazine, or talk to our spouses.

Also coming to Town Hall in July: Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk, touting Invisible Monsters Remix, an update of his ’99 novel Invisible Monsters with new scenes, new design, and some memoir laced in.

Both authors travel to Seattle courtesy of the Clarion West Writers Workshop, an annual intensive for fledgling sci-fi and fantasy writers that draws the likes of Martin and Palahniuk each year as instructors. This summer’s workshop is already booked, but CW will start accepting applications for the 2013 summer session in December.

If you can’t take a sabbatical to write about dragons, get your tickets now for these Town Hall talks.
