It's Publication Day...

... for the long-awaited Tor reissue of ACE IN THE HOLE, volume six in the Wild Cards series. Look for it on the shelves of your friendly neighborhood bookstore, among the trade paperbacks, or from whichever online bookseller you prefer.

Set during a dramatic week in Atlanta during the 1988 Democratic National Convention, as a religious fanatic and a secret psychopath struggle for the nomination, ACE IN THE HOLE is one of our full mosaics, featuring the work of Melinda M. Snodgrass, Victor Milan, Walton (Bud) Simons, Stephen Leigh, and Walter Jon Williams, deftly edited and interwoven by yours truly.

The stars this time around are Dr. Tachyon, Mackie Messer, Demise, Puppetman, and Golden Boy. That's Mackie coming through a Hartmann poster on the stunning new cover by Michael Komarck.



This is one of our best, if I do say so myself. The full mosaic form is incredibly demanding, for the writers and editor both, but I think the results are worth it.

Don't be frightened, though, ACE IN THE HOLE is purely fiction. No way any presidential candidate so malicious and deceptive could ever be nominated by a major party in real life. Right?

Music is Coming
Sorry to go off topic but this past Saturday I have the joy and privilege of seeing Ramin Djawadi live music performance. I don't think I saw any posts or anything from you on the subject but I really hope you get the opportunity to see the performance (if you haven't already). They really put on an impressive show from start to finish. The Rains of Castamere has long been one of my favorite side stories/aspects of your world and to see the live performance gave me chills.

awesome book
I'm reading, once more, Ace in the Hole, but in french this time.
It's still one of my favourite WildCards books. I'm realy enjoying reading it even if I know all of the secret hiden in the book now.

But I'm so disappointed of the french book cover... :(

Re: Question
Wouldn't be the best place to start, no. Start with WILD CARDS. Or failing that, with book four, ACES ABROAD. This one is book six.

I've thought about getting into the 'Wild Cards' series, and as a primer, I have a question that I'm sure has been often asked before:

What are your favorite (if you can choose) standalone stories/novels in the series?

Does tor have any notion of companioning these stories with audio books? Im really curious to check this out but with a one year old at home its hard to find time to read words on paper

There are audiobooks. Brilliance did the first two books, RandomHouse Audio volumes three through six. Seven is being recorded even now.
