I'm writing for Wild Cards!

In case you missed it, I'm going to be writing a story set in the Wild Cards universe for their new book called: KNAVES OVER QUEENS.

The book is set in the UK and features stories that run from 1946 to the present day.

For those of you who don't know, Wild Cards is a super hero universe which has been running since forever* and has twenty six volumes published at present (find out more here). It's masterminded by George R.R.** Martin and Melinda Snodgrass, and has had a whole constellation of fab writers contributing to it over the years.

There's a full announcement about it on George's Livejournal.

Alas, there is no official publication date yet but it'll be brought to you by Tor in the US and Harper Voyager in the UK.

It'll also be the first book published to contain stories written by me and Emma!💖💖💖💖 The full list of contributors to KNAVES OVER QUEENS is below, check them out:

Kevin Andrew Murphy
Peadar O Guilin
Caroline Spector
Paul Cornell
Charles Stross
Marko Kloos
Peter Newman
Melinda M. Snodgrass

If you keep up to date with Tea and Jeopardy using my blog, you have my sympathy! A combination of being away, technical issues and other distractions mean there's a lot to catch up on.

In episode 66 we went to the North Pole and had the fabulous Maurice Broaddus over for tea and cake.

In episode 67 we went to Doll Island with the delightful Sarah Day.

Last month we went to Helsinki for WorldCon 75 and did a special live show with George R(eally) R(eally) Martin! (Click here to see the video)
