    Destination Unknown

    Zelazny, Trent

    Signed Paperback

    Brian has found solace in alcohol, while Kate spends most of her time sedated. Until the night on the mountain road, and the briefcase they suddenly come to possess-an important briefcase that was not intended for them. Now, battling with their own inner struggles, the two of them become the targets of an unknown adversary less interested in the briefcase than in the games he can play. As their lives threaten to completely fall apart, Brian and Kate must find the strength not only to work together, but to face the horrible tragedy that haunts them both.

    Martin, George R.R.

    Signed Hardcover

    On Sale: 01/05/2021

    Deuces Down is the next Wild Cards anthology collection about George R. R. Martin’s alternate superhero history

    In this revised collection of classic Wild Cards stories, the spotlight is on the most unusual Wild Cards of them all—the Deuces, or people with minor superpowers. But their impact on the world should not be underestimated, as we see how they’ve affected the course of Wild Cards’ alternate history.

    In Deuces Down, iconic celebrities and landmark events are seen in a whole new light, such as John Jos. Miller’s exciting 1969 World Series between the Baltimore Orioles and the Brooklyn Dodgers; Michael Cassutt’s first moon landing, when the world wasn’t watching; Walter Simons’ Great New York City Blackout of 1977; and Melinda M. Snodgrass’s account of Grace Kelly’s mysterious disappearance during the filming of The French Lieutenant’s Woman. Edited by fantasy superstar George R. R. Martin and Melinda M. Snodgrass, Deuces Down also features brand-new stories from Carrie Vaughn, Mary Anne Mohanraj, and Caroline Spector.
