Wild Cards Discussion

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.

I haven't read Wild Cards in years, though I still love to Play Gurps Wild Cards.

It would be nice to have a place to discuss it though, and while I'm waiting for other books, there's no time like the present to jump back in I suppose.

Interestingly, if I hadn't recognized your name (and later figured out it was from Beauty and the Beast) I wouldn't have read Wild Cards when I did. And then I would have missed out on Song of Ice and Fire.

So thanks for all your work.

P.S. Any chance there will be more Dunk and Egg stories in the future? I'm not trying to be pushy, just wondering if you have pondered giving more of those two.

George'll be publishing his third Dunk & Egg story, titled "The Mystery Knight", in the WARRIORS anthology due... I'm not sure when. As I recall, they were waiting on a story from one final, "big name" contributor.

George read a part of it at the last Worldcon. If you're interested, reports on the reading and some of what it revealed start cropping up [url=http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php?showtopic=30230&st=40]here at the A Song of Ice and Fire forum[/url], and go on for a couple of pages as others fill in details. Naturally, spoilers, etc.
