Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings
||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
