More Wild Cards Goodness

lohengrin
Here's a fanfare for all of you Wild Cards fans out there.

There's a brand new, never-before-published Wild Cards story just up on Tor.Com.

This one was penned by Cherie Priest. It's called "The Button Man and the Murder Tree."

The 'cover art' by the amazing John Picacio.

This one is a sort of 'origin story' for Cherie's Button Man character, last seen in FORT FREAK.

You can read it here:

More Wild Cards coming on Tor.com... and of course on the shelves of your local bookshop.

SandKings...
My apologies for posting here on something other than the current topic at hand, but I have no idea how else to contact you and I've been a fan of this particular story, since I first saw it in Omni magazine back in the early 80's.

Having just watched the TV version (Outer Limits) of this story on YouTube (it was a travesty, barely even touching on various aspects of the original story), it got me to wondering... what DO SandKings actually look like?

Since YOU created them, you would best know what they would actually look like. You mentioned multi-faceted eyes set all around their bodies and them having tendrils (tentacles?)...

I'd love to know exactly how you envisioned them... so that they could be known the way they were supposed to look, not someone else's interpretation of them. The author knows best... and it is a shame when other people take "artistic license" and ruin a wonderful story, because they think they know a better way of telling/envisioning the story.

I hope to hear from you on this.

Only when a director cares more about the original story than what HE wants to create, based on it, will the recreation of the story truly be worth watching.

Re: SandKings...
Well, I described them in the story, I believe. Which I wrote over the Christmas holidays in 1978, so the details are a little vague at this point.
