Wild Cards Discussion

Spain
I got an email from a reader who wanted to know if there was a site out there where the Wild Cards books were being discussed and debated the way the Ice & Fire books are on the Westeros board. The short answer, alas, is "no." There is no 'Wild Card Westeros.'

There are a half-dozen different sites where the books have been discussed. The liveliest of them is Captain Comics, at http://www.captaincomics.us/forums/index.php?board=35.0



There is also Tor's official Wild Cards site at http://www.wildcardsbooks.com . No message boards there, but plenty of bios, author interviews, special "outtatkes" and exclusive content, even some links to old Wild Cards panels at worldcons past.

And last but not least, there's the wonderful UK fan site Wild Cards OnLine, with a wealth of detail about the books and characters. That one can be found at http://www.wildcardsonline.com/

All of them are well worth checking out.

Just wanted to chime in on something George said.

If you're at all interested in discussing the series definitely check the Captain Comics board. There are several threads that would be of interest, including ones for each of the new Tor books. Also, the readers there have just started a very ambitious re-reading and commentary on the entire series. The pace is not devastating -- one story per week, with commentary on the "current" story usually on Wednesday. The story curently under is consideration is Walter Jon Williams' "Witness" from Book 1, so you can get in practically on the ground floor.

I've been following the commentary myself and finds it very interesting, so check it out if you're so inclined.

i'll second (well, third) John and George's recommendation of the Captain Comics site: lots of good commentary, and several of the wild cards writers show up there occasionally or even often...
