Edited by #1 New York Times bestselling author George R. R. Martin, High Stakes features the writing talents of Melinda M. Snodgrass, John Jos. Miller, David Anthony Durham, Caroline Spector, Stephen Leigh, and Ian Tregillis.
Perfect for old fans and new readers alike, High Stakes (Wild Cards) delves deeper into the world of aces, jokers, and the hard-boiled men and women of the Fort Freak police precinct in a pulpy, page-turning novel of superheroics and Lovecraftian horror.
Wild Cards is a universe of super powers (Aces) and unfortunates (Jokers) made when an alien virus kills 90% of Earth’s population at the end of WWII, leaving 1% Aces and 9% Jokers. Now in modern day, this universe rivals others like DC and Marvel. Just picked up for television!
