Reviews

"Overall, this collection feels less intense than previous volumes, with more comedic undertones to balance the seriousness, and less darkness in general. With its ensemble cast of returning favorites and intriguing newcomers, it's a welcome change of pace, a satisfying palate cleanser before the series begins its next big arc." --Publishers Weekly

Praise for the Wild Cards series

"Perhaps the most original and provocative of the shared worlds books." --Peter S. Beagle, author of The Last Unicorn

Delicious...Everything I hoped for in a new Wild Cards book. The character interactions and plot twists have exactly the complexity, surprise, and unsentimental realism I'd expect out of a George R. R. Martin project. --Austin Grossman, author of Soon I Will be Invincible on Inside Straight

"This is a wild ride of good, blood-pumping fun that packs a surprisingly emotional punch for a book that looks on the surface like just another superhero adventure." -- Publishers Weekly on High Stakes

"Emotionally powerful. Wild Cards deals up the variety of short fiction without losing the continuity of a novel."--The Seattle Times

"A delightfully imaginative speculation."--The Toronto Star

Martin has assembled an impressive array of writers. . . . Progressing through the decades, Wild Cards keeps its momentum to the end. --Locus

The shared-world series known as Wild Cards has had a long and illustrious history of contributors and achievements. --SciFi.com

New readers and fans of the long-running series will both love the fast-paced plotting and the ever-expanding history of the Wild Card virus on this alternate Earth, where even the superheroes are human. --Shelf Awareness on Lowball

Highly recommended. --SFRevu on Lowball
