“Perhaps the most original and provocative of the shared worlds books.” —Peter S. Beagle, author of The Last Unicorn

In the aftermath of World War II, an alien virus struck the Earth, endowing a handful of survivors with extraordinary powers. Some were called aces—those with superhuman mental and physical abilities. Others were termed jokers—cursed with bizarre mental or physical disabilities. Some turned their talents to the service of humanity. Others used their powers for evil. Wild Cards is their story.
