Tor Schedules BUSTED FLUSH for December
May 12, 2008
This should be a merry Christmas for Wild Cards fans. Tor has scheduled Busted Flush, the second installment in the new triad that began with Inside Straight, for publication in December.
The nineteenth volume in the overall series, Busted Flush features the return of three popular mainstays from our original run with Bantam and Baen: Carnifex, Cameo, and… but no, that would be telling. The three veterans will be sharing the action with Bubbles, Jonathan Hive, Curveball, Drummer Boy, Stuntman, Earth Witch, Rustbelt, Double Helix, and the other “next generation” wild carders introduced in Inside Straight, and some great new characters making their Wild Cards debuts, among them Genetrix, Hoodoo Mama, Snowblind, Little Fat Boy, and Our Lady of Pain. The lineup looks like this:
Originally launched in 1987, Wild Cards has outlasted all the other shared worlds of the 80s to become the longest-running such series in the history of our genre.
