Wild Cards

In 1946, an alien virus that rewrites human DNA was accidentally unleashed in the skies over New York City. It killed ninety percent of those it infected. Nine percent of those who survived mutated into tragically deformed creatures. And one percent gained superpowers. Wild Cards is the history of the world since then—and of the heroes among that one percent. This shared-universe science fiction series, created and edited since 1987 by New York Times #1 bestselling science fiction and fantasy author George R. R. Martin, now tells the story of a new generation of heroes, for long-time fans and new readers alike.
