Wild Cards, featuring members of Critical Mass, plus a few
The Wild Cards franchise is back, with a whole host of new writers (and some of the original writers as well). Critical Mass members include Daniel Abraham, George RR Martin, John Joseph Miller, Melinda Snodgrass, and Ian Tregillis. Carrie Vaughn, whom I blogged about a couple of days ago, is also a contributor.
The first of the new trilogy coming out is called Inside Straight, and I have read many parts of it completely out of order, thanks to my writer's group. If you like the superhero genre, though, or if you've ever wondered what American Idol would be like with superheroes (the winner gets a contract to defend a city), you'll love this.
