TIME WAITS FOR NO ONE: BUT IT GOT GEORGE R.R.

My old friend, former landlord, quarter-century Santa Fe resident and, award-winning science-fiction, fantasy and horror writer, George R. R. Martin was featured in last week's Time Magazine for his latest book A Feast For Crows.

Time calls him the "American Tolkien."

George got me a gig to play at the Hugo Awards ceremony at the World Science Fiction Convention in Denver back in 1981. (My G-string broke -- yes, I was playing guitar, not dancing -- about the time I struck my second chord in "Cajun Clones.")

Back in the daze, he used the lyrics from my song "Those Were the Daze" for the frontspiece in his 1983 novel The Armageddon Rag.

Good to see George get some national recognition.
