Hey!  So it turns out the first of the string of Wild Cards stories I have coming out went live this week!  “Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza” is up at Tor.com.  Check it out!  I’ve been wanting to do this topic for a while now:  deal with the Wild Card virus being passed along through the DNA of victims — people who’ve inherited the virus rather than been newly infected, and what it looks like to have a family with a Wild Cards heritage. (Very rare, granted, given the fatality rate.  But still, it happens.)

In other news:  I made part of my niece’s Halloween costume this year:

I’m thinking back to when my Mom made me a Wonder Woman costume when I was about 5, and it was all felt because that’s what was available.  Now, we’ve got gold lamé, sparkly stickers, all kinds of fancy fancy things to make costumes with.  I’m wondering how much of the cosplay revolution is due to the availability of great materials — or if cosplay is driving the availability of great materials?  I don’t know.

Speaking of cosplay, I’m making a Thing that I hope to have finished by Mile Hi Con next week.  I decided to try to adapt an existing pattern, and it’s kind of kicking my ass — it’s just ever so slightly beyond my skill set.  Which I guess is good, because I’m learning something.  We’ll see if I can figure it out this weekend.  If I can just get the collar to work, the rest will be cake.  *rolls up sleeves*

    Uhh… Thing? Can’t really see you in a rock suit, have to say. Still, there’s something to be said for challenging yourself. Or… is it for someone else?


  2. I’m gonna be honest Carrie, I have higher hopes for your Wonder Woman than Gal Gadot’s.


  3. Hi Carrie, absolutely loved the Wild Card story, wrote a short review about it on my blog🙂 http://thebookplank.blogspot.com/2014/10/short-fiction-friday-nuestra-senora-de.html

    I love the story, but I will like to know if it will ever be collected into print? More than any other series, Wild Cards owns my heart. I would gladly buy it if they would include it somewhere.
