Author Event: Melinda Snodgrass

Join Melinda Snodgrass for a talk on the first solo Wild Cards novel DOUBLE SOLITAIRE. Soon to be a show on Hulu!

MELINDA SNODGRASS studied opera in Austria, went to UNM Law School, and practiced law for a few years before realizing she loved the law but wasn’t fond of the lawyers. She then began writing science fiction, worked on numerous show in Hollywood, including Star Trek: The Next Generation, and is a co-editor of the Wild Cards series.

Rights to develop Wild Cards for TV have been acquired by Universal Cable Productions, the team that brought you The Magicians and Mr. Robot. It is soon to be a show on Hulu.

“Perhaps the most original and provocative of the shared worlds books.” —Peter S. Beagle, author of The Last Unicorn

“This is a wild ride of good, blood-pumping fun that packs a surprisingly emotional punch for a book that looks on the surface like just another superhero adventure.” — Publishers Weekly on High Stakes

Synopsis:

Aboard his grandfather’s spaceship and fleeing the violent turmoil between jokers, aces, and nats that his vicious ambition spawned, Blaise is headed for a new conquest: the planet Takis. Dr. Tachyon is left behind… but he’s lost more than his only way of returning to his homeworld. Blaise has stolen his body, as well—leaving Tach trapped in the pregnant body of a teenage runaway.

Tachyon must sell his soul to reach Takis —and once there, confront Blaise amidst the political and military machinations of Takisian society. Treachery and treason await him. At stake is nothing less than the destiny of an entire world.

Tickets- $5.00, Ticket with paperback book- $25.00

    I was deeply saddened this week to read of the death of Mike Resnick, one of the true giants of contemporary science fiction.  Mike has been battling serious illness for some time, so the news did not come as a complete surprise… but it came too soon, too soon, and our field and our community
