Book Review of Wild Cards (Wild Cards, Bk 1)

Wild Cards (Wild Cards, Bk 1)
reviewed on
Helpful Score: 1

1rst in one of my favorite fantasy-sf series. This shared universe collaboration between some of the top genre authors is obviously a labor of love, and a paragon of the use of fantasy-sf as a skewed mirror; in this case of history since the 40s. The one assumption that an alien virus, the "Wild Card" can kill 9% of us and warp 1% to have any physical or mental power or deformity that can be conceived of by a human mind. The format is short stories with an overall plot shape and shared characters, but the books read like novels. Highest rating possible!
