The Wild Cards universe is George R.R. Martin's shared world super hero project, a story of Aces and Jokers, those afflicted for good or ill by the release of the Wild Card virus in 1946. It's been going, the characters aging in real time, since 1987, and has featured stories from such luminaries as Cherie Priest, Pat Cadigan, John J. Miller, Melinda Snodgrass and Roger Zelazny, whose character Croyd Crenson, the Sleeper, is, I'm proud to say, Abigail's love interest.
I do hope you enjoy it. I put a lot of love into Abigail's adventures, and I've started to really like using her voice. If Bernice Summerfield commentates in an ironic and domestic manner on science fiction, Abigail does much the same for super heroes.
And while I'm here, just to let you know, my wife Caroline Symcox is appearing at this Saturday's British Science Fiction Association AGM and Mini-Con, on a panel at 10am, with Ben Aaronovitch, Simon Guerrier, Una McCormack and Graham Sleight, on the subject of 'writing for Doctor Who'. Entry is free (I think), and you get to see the BSFA in action, as well as many other panels. Well worth going to if you're within range of London.
Until next time, Cheerio!
