My friend snapped this excellent picture of GRRM storming into the signing.

UPDATE: This post was originally going to include pictures of what I got signed, but it got late last night and I forgot.
|My Kindle the morning of the event, unsuspecting of what would happen to it.|
|They announced that you could get your eReader signed if you had an electronic copy of the book, so I thought it might be fun to have GRRM sign my Kindle.|
|There's the lovely cover page, hand-signed by the very hand that brought the story into the world. Triserao commented that it looks like the signature belongs there.|
|The Barnes and Noble in Union Square.|
Anne Groell, GRRM's editor's post about the event. "B&N clocked the crowd at 1,800 strong... They said it was one of the best author signings they had ever hosted–in large part due to the general froodiness of all the fans. So thanks for being such a stand-up bunch, you guys! You did us all proud."
The AP story about the event. "Fans stand and cheer for fantasy writer George R.R. Martin."
