Here's your chance to get all your Wild Cards books signed... and signed... and signed.



And we'll have plenty of stock of the non-Wild Cards books by our attending writers (yes, we let them write other things too), which they will be glad to scribble in as well.

The fun will start at the JCC at 4:30 on the afternoon of Sunday, October 8.

Aces, jokers, deuces, even nats: all of you are welcome. See you there!

((Comments welcome... about Wild Cards and the JCC. Off topic comments will be deleted))

I know Studs Terkel and Hunter S. Thompson exist in the Wild Cards universe, but how about yourself or any of the other Wild Cards authors?

Hope you all have a great time.

Petty
Off-topic, but this was one rough day and I know you love music. Any thoughts on Tom Petty? He was one of the greats.

This has been a terrible few months. So many deaths.

Audiobook Publishing dates
When are we hoping to see the audiobooks for Wild Cards VIII and beyond drop as well as their associated reprints? I have been TRAWLING the internet for that information since finishing Deadman's Hand.

Also bummed I didn't know about this gathering sooner, would have tried to make the trip to get my copy of The Jolsen Story signed.

Re: Audiobook Publishing dates
I am sure there will be more audiobooks eventually, but they have not been scheduled or recorded yet.

The next two books in the pipeline are volumes eight and nine, ONE-EYED JACKS and JOKERTOWN SHUFFLE. We are adding two NEW stories to each of those volumes, as we did with books one and four, and that process takes a bit of time.

Re: Audiobook Publishing dates
Ah, well the audiobooks were a great introduction to the series. After years on the fence about Wild Cards the first audiobook opened my world to both the awesomeness of Wild Cards and to audiobooks in general!

I'm excited about the new work being added to ONE-EYED JACKS. I won't ask you when they'll be out since I know the answer will be when they're ready. Just excited to know it's in the pipeline.

Possible conclusion
Have you been editing/writing Wild Cards with specific end in mind? Or is it going to be like a comic book series or marvel extended universe etc that does not need to have an end?

What a line-up
You don't really realise how good Wildcards has it until you see that line-up. Waldrop, especially, is an underrated star; I wish I could meet him and have him tell me about Golden Age comics.

Roger Zelazny
No disrespect to any of the other authors but sadly the one I would have loved to have met has passed away. Mr. Zelazny wrote some of the greatest stories to have ever been told. What a great and unique writer he was. What was your favorite tale that he wrote?

Re: Roger Zelazny
LORD OF LIGHT, among the novels.

The short work is harder. So many favorites.

But Roger was a giant. We shall not see his like again.

Re: Roger Zelazny
I loved Lord of Light as well. Both of you guys are giants. Thanks for some brilliant writing!
