Then There Were Two

Another week, another round of NFL playoffs.

Last week in the divisional round, we got two great games and two blowouts. I was hoping that this week's conference championships would give us more exciting contests, but no such luck. The Falcons ripped right through Green Bay and the Patriots obliterated the Steelers. Neither contest was even remotely competitive.

Not much to say about either game, really. Aaron Rodgers is amazing, yes, but he doesn't play defense, and the Packer D could not even seem to slow down Matty Ice, let alone stop him. And the Patriots... yeah, yeah, Brady is good, especially when you give him weeks to sit in the pocket unmolested and don't cover his receivers. I watched him complete pass after pass that seemed to be totally uncontested, with the receiver standing all alone and not a defender within yards.

Anyway, we have our SuperBowl: Patriots against Falcons.

Nothing much to say but GO FALCONS.

Meanwhile, I am thinking about next year's draft...

Carrie Is Coming...

... back to the Jean Cocteau.

Colorado's own Carrie Vaughn, one of our favorite people, will be returning to New Mexico on Sunday for an author event at the Jean Cocteau. We'll do doing an interview and a Q&A, and Carrie will be signing copies of her new novel, MARTIANS ABROAD.



We'll also have plenty of copies of Carrie's Kitty Norville series on hand for autographing, as well as all the Wild Cards books that she has contributed to. (Her Wild Cards characters include Curveball, Earth Witch, Rikki, and Wild Fox).

The fun starts on Sunday at 1:00pm. Come join us, in you're in the vicinity of Santa Fe. And if you're not, you can still get a signed book by mailorder through the JCC website.

Wild Card Artwork Wanted

We've added a couple cool new things to the official Wild Cards website.

First off, a new blog post about Superworld, the role-playing game that inspired Wild Cards, from Steve Perrin, who created it.

Also, we've added a brand new art gallery at http://www.wildcardsworld.com/art-gallery/

Thing is, there's no art in the art gallery... yet. That's where we hope you will come in. We want Wild Cards art! Yes, we'll be putting up some of the superb cover art and interior illustrations that the books have featured over the decades, but we also hope this page will be a place to showcase some fan art, and maybe discover some new talent.

So if you've got that restless urge to draw, and own a paintbrush or a box of colored pencils, we'd love to see what you can do. There's a link right on the page where you can send your work. Everything that's appropriate will be posted (please note, we want Wild Cards artwork ONLY, so don't send us portraits of Jon Snow or Daenerys Targaryen, or Harry Potter, or Spider-Man, or ANYTHING that is not Wild Cards inspired).

Also, if you look through the author bios and character sketches elsewhere on the site, you'll note that there are many Wild Cards characters who have NEVER been illustrated. We've love to have some thumbnails to add to those entries. We don't promise to accept anything or everything... but for those who send us something cool enough to make the cut, we have free autographed hardcovers of INSIDE STRAIGHT.

Fly high, aces.
