Where can I see the rest of the cards?
I have posted a gallery of the entire deck here.
What does “matlub” mean?
“Matlub” (with an emphatic “t” and long “u”) is a rough translation of the Arabic for “most wanted.” In Arabic, the word literally means most wanted, though the connotation is closer to "stylish" or "hot." That skewed meaning suited my purposes, so I printed the Arabic on the card backs and tuck box.
Is this a book or a deck of playing cards?
Most Wanted: A Gamble in Verse is a copyrighted, registered book (ISBN 0-9758578-0-0) as well as a deck of poker-sized, casino-quality playing cards.
Does you consider unsolicited manuscripts?
I have no plans to publish unsolicited manuscripts.
