Victor Milán Talks Wild Cards

In August 2017, George R.R. Martin hosted a big Wild Cards event at his theatre in Santa Fe. As part of the festivities, Martin taped interviews with a dozen of the attending writers, including the late Victor Milán. Milán discusses what it’s like working collaboratively with other Wild Cards writers, names the perfect actor to portray his own character Captain Trips, and muses on how Superman might fit into the Wild Cards universe. We’re honored to share Milán’s entire interview, complete and uncut, below.

Acclaimed author Victor Milán (1954-2018) was best known for his award winning science fiction novel Cybernetic Samurai and his fantasy series The Dinosaur Lords. As a contributing author to the Wild Cards universe, he created the character Captain Trips and took readers from a presidential convention in the novel Ace in the Hole to the depths of the Parisian catacombs in his novelette, “Evernight“.
