There’s a brand new Wild Cards original from a brand new Wild Cards author up on Tor.com.
“Skin Deep” is from Alan Brennert. Who is not a new author at all, of course (( though he was back in the mid-70s, when he was a Campbell Award loser just a few years after me )) but he IS brand new to the world of aces and jokers. I first had the honor of publishing Alan when I was doing NEW VOICES, the Campbell Award anthology that was my first foray into editing. A decade or so later, he and I worked together when I got my first gig writing for television, and he helped teach me how to write a teleplay. In more recent years he has been writing novels — his bestselling Hawaii series, and a really wonderful book about Palisades Park in New Jersey.
So go and check out “Skin Deep” on Tor.com. It’s FREE.
And after you’ve enjoyed “Skin Deep,” go check out the rest of the Wild Cards stories on Tor.com, and pick up a couple of Wild Cards books from your favorite bookseller.. along with a few of Alan’s novels. They’re terrific.
