Some cool new content for Wild Cards fans on the official Wild Cards website.
On the blog, Kevin Andrew Murphy takes a detailed look at the history of the Church of Jesus Christ, Joker:
Meanwhile, our ace interviewer Ti Mikkel has had a sit-down with Daniel Abraham, creator of Jonathan Hive, Spasm, Father Henry Obst, and other fun characters. That one is worth a look as well:
Meanwhile, congratulations are in order to Daniel and his fellow Wild Card author Ty Franck. Writing together as James S.A. Corey, they won this year’s Hugo Award for BEST SERIES at CoNZealand, the (virtual) worldcon put on by the fans of New Zealand (but not, alas, held there), for their series of EXPANSE novels.
Congratulations are also due to Max Gladstone, another Wild Carder (creator of Rubberband), who together with his collaborator Amal El-Mohtar took home the Hugo Award for BEST NOVELLA for “This is How You Lose the Time War.”
WILD CARDS itself did not make so much as a dent in the Hugo voting this year, not even on the long list… but it is great to see some of our authors flying high. We have some damned talented folks contributing to Wild Cards, and we are proud of them all.
