Wild Cards Author Q&A: John Joseph Miller

Q. Tell us a little bit about yourself and your experience with Wild Cards.

A. I was one of the original game players way back when, when Wild Cards was simply a role playing game run by George, so I guess you can say I’ve been in it from the beginning. I don’t know if I’ve written more stories than anyone for the series, but I’ve certainly written more words if you count the 100,000 or so I did for the Steve Jackson role playing game and the 200,000 or so I’m currently doing for the Green Ronin role playing game. It’s a great universe to come back to and play in because it’s always growing and changing. I hope I’ll be playing in it for many years to come.

Q. Tell us about the inspiration behind your story forInside Straight.

A. This is a little difficult to answer specifically without giving away too much of the story itself. Suffice it to say that I enjoy surprising the readers, and I think this story will really surprise them with the fate of John Fortune. And the next story will surprise them even more.

Is there an overview somewhere of which books belong to this series, in which order?
I'm certainly interested now, being both a GRRM fan and a superheroes fan. I'd like to start reading this series in EPUB format (I love to read on the phone at night)
Any idea where I could buy them?

The series has an article on Wikipedia, with all the books listed. A lot of them are out of print, but many are available secondhand quite cheaply on amazon and the like.

The first book was recently re-released with extra stories. :)
