• Wanna play cards?!?

    30 May 2020

    A pack of playing cards arrived in the post for me several weeks ago, sent by a fan of my books called Amity Lee -- I've published a lot of her fan art here over the last year and a half or so. I thought it was an odd thing for her to send to me, until I opened up the pack and realised she'd made a design for every card based on characters from my Cirque Du Freak books, and had then got a couple of sets (one for her, one for me) manufactured by a company that specialises in making packs of cards.

     

    Wow.

     

    Just...

     

    Wow.

     

    Yeah, I probably should have something more profound and thankful to say, but this really left me speechless. The idea by itself would have been wonderful, but the drawings are incredible too -- this pack of cards captures so much of the books, it's just... just...

     

    Wow.

     

    I scanned in the majority of the cards, and you can admire them in the attached photos -- there's also one of me holding the pack of cards fanned out, with the backs showing.

     

    So -- who's up for a game of Ship Poker?!? That's a popular card game among the vampaneze -- it's poker, but you play it on a ship in shark-infested waters, and the losers get thrown overboard!!! :-)
