Golden Boy Comes to Brazil

My Brazilian publisher LeYa is moving like lightning in their plans to bring the entire Wild Cards saga to my fans in Brazil (and Roger Zelazny's fans and Howard Waldrop's fans and Carrie Vaughn's fans and Daniel Abraham's fans and Walter Jon Williams's fans and the fans of the other thirty-odd writers who have been and continue to be a part of Wild Cards).

LeYa has hired the amazing Marc Simonetti to paint the covers for their editions. Marc's work is well known to my Ice & Fire readers, of course, since he did this year's official Ice & Fire calendar.

Here's the cover of the first volume of the Brazilian WILD CARDS, featuring Jack Braun, aka Golden Boy, the strongest man in the Wild Cards universe.


I've seen Marc's roughs for the covers of ACES HIGH and JOKERS WILD, and those are pretty cool as well.

Here's a fun addendum. Marc has uploaded of video of the process of bringing Golden Boy to life:

I´ll read it for sure! The cover is wonderful, now waiting for the announcement of Dunk e Egg to be published here in Brazil, and if I can ask, do you know something about this, George?

Hi George, i have a question. Is Marc Simonetti the same person who did the art cover of the A Song of Ice and Fire books in Brazil? If not who did it?

The cover is obscene. The video is proof that illustration is still an artistic skill even if computers help the process along. Cool!

ever consider adding an Asian to your a song of ice and fire books ? lol ! just kidding ! still a huge fan :) ur the only reason why i sign up for the site thing so i can keep up with you and your news and talk to you. and see how you Twow is coming along, no rush..and to see if you going to bring back drogo with dany or not, still a very fun book to read ! i enjoy the reading more than watching,but i love how they bring the characters to life ! they should have made it into a movie instead kind of like harry potter, but harry potter is more like a pussy version of GOT , and GOT is more the R rated bad ass version like adult harry potter , cant even be compare together cuz GOT kick ass !

George, do you have any information about the publishing os Dunk&Egg in Brazil? Wild Cards it's really amazing for fans here in Brazil, but Dunk&Egg would be even better.

Keep up the good work! Cheers from Brazil.
