Aces Assemble!

Lots of cool new stuff coming down on the Wild Cards front of late.

Earlier this month we had our big Wild Cards event at the Jean Cocteau Cinema, hosted by yours truly. Local New Mexico authors Melinda Snodgrass, John Jos. Miller, Victor Milan, Sage Walker, Daniel Abraham, and Walter Jon Williams were joined by out-of-towners Diana Rowland, Christopher Rowe, Caroline Spector, Walton (Bud) Simons, Mary Anne Mohanraj, Kevin Andrew Murphy, David D. Levine, Leanne C. Harper, David Anthony Durham (and his son Sage), Carrie Vaughn, Michael Cassutt, and... last but not least... the one and only Howard Waldrop, father of Jetboy, the kid who never saw the Jolson Story.

It made for an amazing evening, for those lucky enough to be there. And for those of you who weren't, hey, no problem. We're put the whole thing up on YouTube:



After the interviews, the whole WC crowd adjourned to the lobby for a mass signing (which included not only the Wild Cards books, but also their own non-series novel), where they were joined by Ian Tregillis and Laura J. Mixon. The result being that we have TONS of autographed books on hand, the WC mosaics often with multiple signatures. While the supply lasts, you can pick up copies of WILD CARDS, INSIDE STRAIGHT, ACES HIGH, JOKERS WILD, SUICIDE KINDS, BUSTED FLUSH, FORT FREAK, LOWBALL, HIGH STAKES, DOWN & DIRTY, DEAD MAN'S HAND, ACE IN THE HOLE, ACES ABROAD, and many other titles at the Jean Cocteau bookstore http://jeancocteaucinema.com/product-category/author/

We've also added a number of new posts to the Wild Cards blog at http://www.wildcardsworld.com/blog/ , with the most recent contributions coming from David D. Levine, Victor Milan, Laura J. Mixon, and John Jos. Miller. Check it out.

Is the intent to post similar Jean Cocteau events on YouTube in the future?

Glad to hear it. There have been things you've promoted here I would have attended, if not for the approximately 761 miles separating me from the Jean Cocteau theater.

I love Wild Cards. I wish I could be there. When are you coming to Brazil, Mr. Martin?

Just one more month to Mississippi Roll.

Any news about the TV show? (Yeah, I know you probably can't announce anything ahead of schedule).

To the Birds
What kind of bird is that at the top of your Not a Blog? Is it a raven, crow, or some other species entirely? Just curious.

Jean Cocteau Cinema request
With the James Franco's THE DISASTER ARTIST, coming out next month. It would be cool if you showed THE ROOM at your theater.

Have you ever seen THE ROOM?
