Turmoil

In complete turmoil as we approach our moving day! We've been in moving mode for two weeks already, but tomorrow we head toward the final stages. It's picking up the rental van and stuffing it full of our bags, and then we drive to Glasgow on Wed for our very early flight on Thurs. There's way too much organizing going on.

Craziness.

But I don't feel I should neglect the old blog/Facebook, so today I offer the happy news that the fabulous UK publisher Gollancz has agreed to reboot the Wild Cards series in Britain! Seems they couldn't turn down GRRM! They'll be publishing the first three books later this year, and then jumping forward to continue with the newer books next year. So before long my characters may be slithering through the UK. I'm pleased about that.

More soon.

Safe journey!

Good news on Wild Cards (thought it was already confirmed, but never mind!) - now can we have the middle books too please? :)

Well, it's fairly new news. George and Gollancz announced it last week at Eastercon - during the Wild Cards panel. As for the middle books... that may be a wait. No word on reprinting them yet.

I could see it happening if the movie actually happens. Reissues with brand new covers, a twenty-some volume set... I like that idea.

I haven't though that a movie would be possible. Maybe even a HBO series? Anything can happen with GRRM's new found clout!

There's definitely movie/series prospects for the series. The rights have been snatched up by SyFy Films. The screenplay is in development. Maybe something will happen...

Here's the Hollywood Reporter piece on it:
