LOWBALL Done & Delivered

Another monkey off my back...

This time it is a hideous mutant joker monkey. LOWBALL, the twenty-second volume in the ongoing Wild Cards series of shared world anthologies and mosaic novels, is finally complete, and has been delivered to our editors at Tor.

The lineup this time:
“The Big Bleed,” by Michael Cassutt, starring STUNTMAN,
“Those About to Die,” by David Anthony Durham, starring INFAMOUS BLACK TONGUE,
“Galahad in Blue” by Melinda Snodgrass, starring FRANCIS XAVIER BLACK of the NYPD,
“Ties That Bind” by Mary Anne Mohanraj, starring MICHAEL STEVENS of the NYPD,
“Cry Wolf” by David D. Levine, introducing THE CARTOONIST,
“Road Kill” by Walter Jon Williams, starring GORDON THE GHOUL,
“Once More, for Old Time’s Sake” by Carrie Vaughn, starring EARTH WITCH, CURVBALL, DRUMMER BOY, and JOHN FORTUNE,
“No Parking… “ by Ian Tregillis, starring RUSTBELT.

Special thanks this time around to Melinda Snodgrass, who stepped in heroically to help with the editing on this one when I was being crushed beneath the weight of other deadlines. I could not have pulled this puppy together without her.

LOWBALL will likely be released by Tor in hardcover in summer, 2014. More details when I have 'em. Our main man, Michael Komarck, is already hard at work on another spectacular cover.

A Dance With Dragons -- Astonishing NYT Run Continues
A Dance With Dragons continues to dance on the New York Times Hardcover bestseller list.

I have a database going back to 1977 that calculates the score of every book that has appeared on the Hardback list for every week since and including 1977 to today's published list. The scale is calculated from the top down. A #1 place gets 15 points, #2 gets 14 points, and so on down to #15, which receives 1 point.

After running my calculation script today...

A Dance With Dragons has notched up one more slot on the list, passing Like Water For Chocolate, to #19. Here's the top 50:
