More Wild Cards news  
Word count: 2556 | Since last entry: 555

Here's the squee-worthy detail I couldn't reveal before: I have been selected to write one of three new stories in a hardcover reissue of Wild Cards Volume One! It's kind of like a Director's Cut with additional bonus tracks... we're trying to create stories that feel as though they were left out in the first place. It's quite a challenge, but also an amazing honor -- like getting to write a new episode of the original Star Trek, then getting it filmed (somehow) with the young Shatner and Nimoy and then seeing it broadcast right along with the classic episodes.

George R. R. Martin has more details over at his blog.

Very cool! I'm SO excited for this project. Everyone's all "Song of Fire and Ice" this and "Song of Fire and Ice" that, when I'm all "Hey, I read Mr. Martin when he did Wildcards.

And they're "What's Wildcards?"

And then I go all Croyd on them, just so they don't get the joke.

It's mutual.
Hey, David,

As an original WILD CARDS mafioso, I'm flattered and honored at the comparisons, frankly. Thanks!

I can't speak for the rest of the mob; I suspect real strongly I'm not the only one to feel that way.

Welcome to you and the rest of the new kids, and congrats on getting into the expansion of Wild Cards Vol I.
