So last night I got to attend the exclusive “Cocktails with the Wild Cards Chic and Luminaries of the New Mexican League of Authors” party, hosted by our representative, SF and fantasy super-agent Kay McCauley, at the Hotel Santa Fe. (Which, it will surprise you to learn, is in Santa Fe.)

Yes, that could be construed as a plug for my solo Wild Cards novel of a suspiciously similar name. Except it’s not available except used.
Spoiler: now available in ebook form!
And that could be about to change, because our current publisher Tor Books (who also have the extraordinary taste and discernation to be the future [...]
While linking to yet another rendition of my current favorite story on Facebook, my friend Aaron Birenboim asks the musical question, “Will the other Wild Card contributors be getting a piece of this pie?”

And, of course, I will be there. You can’t have Bubonicon without me!
Well, yes. You totally can. But it wouldn’t be the same without me. Certainly not for me.
But Co-Chaircritters Craig [...]
Since I am in a … curmudgeonly mood today, what with this thing and that other thing, I’ll just go ahead and whack on a chunk of Accepted Wisdom from when I was a tad.
