High Stakes: A Wild Cards Novel Kindle Edition for $9.99!

Perfect for old fans and new readers alike, High Stakes (Wild Cards) delves deeper into the world of aces, jokers, and the hard-boiled men and women of the Fort Freak police precinct in a pulpy, page-turning novel of superheroics and Lovecraftian horror bu George R. R. Martin and Melinda M. Snodgrass.

After the concluding events of Lowball, Officer Francis Black of Fort Freak, vigilante joker Marcus "The Infamous Black Tongue" Morgan, and ace thief Mollie "Tesseract" Steunenberg get stuck in Talas, Kazakhstan. There, the coldblooded Baba Yaga forces jokers into an illegal fighting ring, but her hidden agenda is much darker: her fighters' deaths serve to placate a vicious monster from another dimension. When the last line of defense against this world weakens, all hell breaks loose, literally....

The Committee in New York sends a team of aces to investigate. One by one, each falls victim to evil forces--including the dark impulses within themselves. Only the perseverance of the most unlikely of heroes has a chance of saving the world before utter chaos erupts on Earth.

Edited by #1 New York Times bestselling author George R. R. Martin, High Stakes features the writing talents of Melinda M. Snodgrass, John Jos. Miller, David Anthony Durham, Caroline Spector, Stephen Leigh, and Ian Tregillis.

Now in development for TV: Rights to develop Wild Cards for TV have been acquired by Universal Cable Productions, the team that brought you The Magicians and Mr. Robot, with the co-editor of Wild Cards, Melinda Snodgrass as executive producer.

Wild Cards
If anything in the past has turned me off from reading Wild Cards, it's the fact that it's being constantly shoven down my throat.

Re: Wild Cards
I'm the opposite! I got curious enough to start reading and currently 7 books in.
Now I'm devastated over Kid Dinosaur, and honestly think Ti Malice is the creepiest thing ever!

I hope Wild Cards will be more like Mr Robot and less like The Magicians... Have you watched the premiere of American Gods? What do you think? I loved it!Greetings from Spain.

WILD CARDS CASTING
George, I would love to hear your take, a glimpse into your minds eye, on who you would like to see cast as some of the major characters of WCs.

How about Johnny Depp for Dr. Tachyon?

Thandie Newton for Chrysalis =
That accent she displays in Westworld is perfect/She's a slam dunk for this role if there ever was one.

Amy Adams for Blythe Van Brain Trust

Yeoman = ?

Fortunato = ?

Ackroyd = ?

Peregrine = ?

Goldenboy = ?

The Envoy = Jeff Goldbloom

Croyd = ?
