Wild Cards Website Launches!

This is for all the Wild Cards fans out there... and for all those who I'm hoping will become Wild Cards fans in the very near future.

INSIDE STRAIGHT, the first book in the new Wild Cards triad from Tor, is scheduled for publication on January 22. To help celebrate its release, and the rebirth of the Wild Cards series, we're debuting a brand new, official Wild Cards website. You'll find it at:

http://www.wildcardsbooks.com/

Do go and check it out, and be sure and sign up for the free email newsletter that will keep you informed of updates to the site and all the other Wild Cards news. Sign-up will also give you a ticket to some nifty extras and hidden features that we're planning.

We have big plans for the site, including a gallery of fan art, "webisodes" and other original features that you won't find in the books, author interviews, out-takes, and a lot of other cool stuff, so once you visit, come back often.

And if you're new to the world of the Wild Cards, you may also want to check out some of the existing Wild Cards sites on the web. They're not "official," as the new Tor site will be, but they're wonderfully done, with a wealth of information. I'm talking about Jason Redgewell's terrific fan site, Wild Cards Online, and the lively Wild Cards forum to be found on the Captain Comics board. Those addresses are:

http://www.wildcardsonline.com/

and

http://www.captaincomics.us/forums/index.php?board=35.0

So check those out as well, and keep on shuffling. Remember, we can't die yet, we haven't seen THE JOLSON STORY.

Oooh! Can't wait to see the site or the new book. I've been a Wild Cards fan since the beginning and have been anxiously awaiting Inside Straight since you first announced it. Hooray!

VERY interesting. I have yet to buy anything crap from TOR, and even WildCards at it's worst (sorry) was merely mediocre. I look forward to yet another routine drain on my income.

Martha and I are looking forward to getting our hands on Inside Straight.

Obviously we'll need to start creating Wild Cards cocktails.

I wish there was an omnibus edition of the first books...

As long as Joker Plague isn't a nu-metal act, I'll think we'll be fine.

I've only read one Wild Cards book, a paperback collection of short stories I picked up randomly in B Dalton, and loved it. I didn't realize there were more until I started reading this LJ.

Now I know where to spend my book money on. :)

I read the original series back in high school - I'm really excited to see it being relaunched. Yay!

Okay...
After checking out the site, I'm sold. I'll be picking up my copy of "Inside Straight" ASAP!

Thanks for linking these; I haven't been able to dig up much about the series, so this is very helpful.

And I wouldn't fret the Skins thing; if Gibbs lost any more of his senses, he'd send out the white half of a chess set.
