The City That Never Sleeps

A Original

Wild Cards

Walton Simons

Tor Books



For over 25 years, the George R. R. Martin's Wild Cards universe has been entertaining readers with stories of superpowered people in an alternate history.

“There’s never a shortage of people other people want dead.” Spector felt on familiar footing now that he saw the entire game.

All a hit man wants can be as simple as a bottle of bourbon and a time to dream, but when you're Spector, the work never ends, in Walton "Bud" Simons's Original, The City That Never Sleeps.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Reviews from Goodreads

Walton Simons

WALTON "BUD" SIMONS was born in Austin, Texas, attended local schools, and graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in Radio-TV-Film. He earned a few publishing credits, including stories for DC Comics in World’s Finest and House of Mystery. When George R.R. Martin and his fellow New Mexico writers began searching for potential authors for Wild Cards they invited Lew Shiner, who in turn recommended Bud. He wrote his first Wild Cards story “If Looks Could Kill,” for Aces High, and the rest, as they say, is alternate history. Bud currently resides in his native Austin with his wife, Gilda, and more cats than you can count.
