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?

Wild Cards
I'm glad to see Tor is stepping up the releases. I hope it is not just because 6 and 7 are basically 2 parts of 1 book.

I hope we can get more releases per year until we merge with the current books. I preorder each rerelease as soon as you mention it.

I hope the sales numbers show Tor they don't have to space them out to get the numbers they desire. If you could Mr. Martin I hope you could advocate for a 3-4 release year . I know if puts added pressure for extra content but I think it is a series that should be in the hands of as many people as possible asap.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Re: Wild Cards
The new three originals will be coming out six months apart.

Hard to maintain that pace, though.
