About The Wild Cards Series:  In 1946, an alien virus that rewrites human DNA was accidentally unleashed in the skies over New York City. It killed ninety percent of those it infected. Nine percent of those who survived mutated into tragically deformed creatures. And one percent gained superpowers. Wild Cards is the history of the world since then?and of the heroes among that one percent. This shared-universe science fiction series, created and edited since 1987 by New York Times #1 bestselling science fiction and fantasy author George R. R. Martin, now tells the story of a new generation of heroes, for long-time fans and new readers alike. Originally begun in 1986, long before George R. R. Martin became a household name among fantasy readers (“The American Tolkien” ~Time Magazine), the Wild Cards series earned a reputation among connoisseurs for its smart reimagining of the superhero idea.

The event starts at 4:30 pm Sunday, October 8 (panel discussions at 4:30, signings at 6:30).  Admission included with purchase of a Wild Cards hardcover ($26.00 total), $5.00 with the purchase of a Wild Cards paperback ($20.00 total), or $10.00 without a book purchase.

The Jean Cocteau Cinema is located at 418 Montezuma Avenue, north end of the Rail Yard District, in Santa Fe. For more info and tickets: 505-466-5528 or
