So That American Tolkien Guy, George R. R. Martin Himself, just posted a link to this video. It's a mess (term used advisedly) of your favorite Wild Cards authors new and old, appearing onstage at George's Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe - in the personas of our characters!
Yes, I'm in this too. What? You thought they'd keep me away from the limelight?
Every year our Super-Agent, Kay McCauley, throws a cocktail party for the Wild Cards crew in Santa Fe. Last time, in August of 2016, for various reasons a bunch of people, new WC contributors especially, decided to come in from out of town to attend. While far from all of them wound up here onstage, the attendant signing in the art gallery next door (George owns the whole building) was probably the largest gathering of Wild Cards authors in history! Until even more turned out for MidAmeriCon II, the Kansas City Worldcon, the next week. (Although I was not among them.)
The actual party was held the next evening at Meow Wolf, which Kay had reserved exclusively for the event. (She knows the landlord.) (Guess who?) It was my first time there and … it lives up to the hype. If you get a chance, you totally should go.
Anyway, check it out. George also linked to the Cocteau’s page of author event videos, including this one. It’s possible it’ll also eventually have a link to the vid of my January 22nd appearance with John Jos Miller and Trent Zelazny, which, while sparsely attended, seemed to go pretty well.
Anyway, this one’s pretty much a hoot, as you might expect of this cast of characters. Either from fiction or real life. Check it out!
And as always – thanks for reading!
