INSIDE STRAIGHT DELIVERED
January 18, 2007
Inside Straight, the latest installment in our long-running WILD CARDS series of mosaic novels, has been delivered to editor Patrick Nielsen Hayden at Tor.
Originally launched in 1987, WILD CARDS has outlasted all the other shared worlds of the 80s to become the longest-running series in the history of our genre. Inside Straight will be the eighteenth volume in the overall series… but it also represents a new beginnning, introducing a whole new storyline that features the next generation of aces and jokers. Contributors this time around include Wild Card veterans Melinda M. Snodgrass, John Jos. Miller (formerly John J. Miller), Michael Cassutt, and Daniel Abraham, newcomers Carrie Vaughn, Caroline Spector, Ian Tregillis, and the mysterious S.L. Farrell.
