Wild Cards To Brazil

My fantasy novels have been doing very well in Brazil, thanks in no small part to my wonderful publisher LeYa and some gorgeous Marc Simonetti covers... and now my Brazilian readers will have the chance to sample my other long-running series as well. WILD CARDS is coming to Brazil.

I am thrilled to announce that I've just signed a deal with LeYa for Brazilian (Portugese) editions of the entire Wild Cards series, all twenty-two volumes, from the original WILD CARDS to the still-in-progress LOWBALL.


I couldn't be happier, and my Wild Cards compatriots and contributors are doing cartwheels. I hope my Brazilian fans will enjoy reading about Jetboy, the Turtle, Dr. Tachyon, Bugsy, Yeoman, Curveball, Golden Boy, Capn Trips, Rustbelt, IBT, the Sleeper, Oddity, and the rest of the Wild Cards gang as much as we've enjoyed writing about 'em.


(And yes, I know, one of these days I must go down and visit Brazil. I'd love to, really. Just a matter of finding the time. Maybe some year for Carnival, I hear that's pretty wild).

I see. Well, I really there will. The universe of ASOIAF fascinates me. It would be good to see how things where when... y'know, there's less crazy sociopaths, kings and Littlefingers?

Never really saw any of your other works... thinking I may buy one of the Wild Cards, see how they're like (any suggestions?). Though ASOIAF really does get my time... I'm on my freakin' fifth re-read of the series... and I STILL find out things I didn't catch on before! Dammit!

Oh, on a similar note... someone probably asked you this before, but do you have any plans on writing about the events on Harrenhal and the War of the Usurper? I (for one) can see you finishing the main series (hope it's not a sweet summer dream), and I am quite interested in the backstory of everything... besides, it would be good to see characters such as Eddard Stark and Robert Baratheon again, in a younger self. So, I guess my question is if you plan in writing a book about it one day (please say yes... I have to see Ned have at least SOME happiness in his life... I just love that dude... in a totally heterosexual way, of course. Ahem.)

Oh, and thank you for the answers! Since I began leaving comments here, you always answered them. It's really good to see that you spare some time to read and interact with us!

Good news for ye, George (may his beard grow ever longer!) is currently working on a book called "The World of Ice and Fire", basically a "history" of.. well, the world of ASOIF! Last time he mentioned it, he said it was turning into a "monster". Well, I hope it turns into a huge, twelve-headed behemoth of a monster! I have my own set of notes with the bits and pieces about past events mentioned throughout the series, and I can't wait to fill all the gaps.

It's a truly fascinating world. I just hope people won't rush him and let the man do his job, for I am pretty sure the wait will be very much worth it.
