A new collection of Wild Cards stories, previously published on Tor.com and together in one volume for the first time!
In the aftermath of World War II, an alien virus struck Earth, endowing a handful of survivors with extraordinary powers. People with admirable abilities were called aces. Others became physically mutated and were labeled as jokers.
Every generation, the virus creates new aces and jokers. Every generation, there are those who use their powers in the service of humanity or for the purpose of evil.
Wild Cards is their story.
In hardcover for the first time, Full House brings together the Wild Cards stories that have been previously published on Tor.com, including works from:
David D. Levine
Walter Jon Williams
Melinda M. Snodgrass
"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
