Lowball: A Wild Cards Novel

I'm very pleased to announce that as of today the newest Wild Card's mosaic novel is available!

It's edited by George RR Martin, is out in the world. It features original fiction by Carrie Vaughn, Ian Tregillis, Melinda M. Snodgrass, Mary Anne Mohanraj, David D. Levine, Michael Cassutt, and Walter John Williams.

Oh... and me!

Here, by the way, is the final cover:

The dude on the front is Marcus Morgan, also know as the Infamous Black Tongue. IBT for short. He's the product of a collaboration between myself and my son. He wouldn't exist quite the way he does with Sage's input. Awesome, that.

Wanna sample of this thing? Okay, here's one at Tor.com. It begins with a Michael Cassutt's story, and then includes the first part of mine.

Actually, I've gotten some love a number of times with in excerpts. IBT is featured on the Amazon page for the book, as well as in the official excerpt on GRRM's site.

Here's some copy from the jacket:

Decades after an alien virus changed the course of history, the surviving population of Manhattan still struggles to understand the new world left in its wake. Natural humans share the rough city with those given extraordinary—and sometimes terrifying—traits. While most manage to coexist in an uneasy peace, not everyone is willing to adapt. Down in the seedy underbelly of Jokertown, residents are going missing. The authorities are unwilling to investigate, except for a fresh lieutenant looking to prove himself and a collection of unlikely jokers forced to take matters into their own hands—or tentacles. The deeper into the kidnapping case these misfits and miscreants get, the higher the stakes are raised.

Never tried Wild Cards? It's a long-running series, but not to worry. You could begin at the book just before this one, Fort Freak (Wild Cards). It's the start of a new cycle, and it also features my character!
