Double Helix Returns

Double Helix is back, and Tor.com has got him... her... them.

Noel Matthews, our favorite gender-bending sex-switching ace magician, teleporting assassin, and snide supercilious sonofabitch, the guy/ gal that Wild Cards fans love to hate or hate to love, returns in solo action in Melinda Snodgrass's "When the Devil Drives." As usual, John Picacio has contributed another amazing cover illustration.

You can ride with the devil, for FREE, at http://www.tor.com/2017/07/05/when-the-devil-drives/

For those of you who haven't tried Wild Cards yet, "free" is a good way to have a taste. Melinda's story is the latest on Tor.com, but by no means the only one. Search, and ye shall find stories by Cherie Priest, Daniel Abraham, Carrie Vaughn, Walter Jon Williams, Paul Cornell, Stephen Leigh, and David D. Levine as well. Have a read... and don't forget to comment (there, not here).

One Fevre Dream movie please, thanks
Wild cards is all right.

But personally, I want to see your Fevre Dream made into a movie. I finished re-re-re-reading it today, and I do believe it could make a damn good motion picture.

Give us an update on that, why don't you? While you're at it, throw in some trinkets about a certain other book we've been waiting so long for.

THere's a FEVRE DREAM script I wrote myself ages ago, but, alas, no current option on the property.

A few years ago, I met with Guillermo del Toro to discuss the possibility of his directing a FEVRE DREAM film. He was enthused, but he has dozens of other projects, and in the end nothing came of it.

That's really unfortunate. I hope you'll receive a great offer from someone to make that film.

I especially loved how you've described the steam boats. So many details, I loved it!

Consider writing a sequel to it ( only after that other book is complete, please)

Thanks for everything, have a great day! ☺️

Sweet! Thanks for the link! =D A gender-bending sex-switching magician that's also a villain *evil grin* sounds decadently fun and right up my alley!

(Ha ha funny that you need to voice not to comment on their work here! Feedback is the elixir of the gods to an author!)

Re: New to Wild Cards
There are all the stories on Tor.com that you can sample for free.

If the world and characters intrigue you, pick up either WILD CARDS or INSIDE STRAIGHT or FORT FREAK. Any of those will offer you a good entry into the world.

Good shows
Don't know if you checked it out, but I found Starz American Gods to be an excellent far out there series. I maybe biased as I have not read the source material, and I'm kind of afraid to now. Reading Got kept me from getting into the series on tv, as I couldn't help comparing to what I had imagined your world to look like from my reading. I couldn't think of it as it's own separate entity.
