Overview

Praise for the George R.R. Martin's Wild Cards series:

"Well written and suspenseful and a good read."-Aboriginal Science Fiction

"Commendable writing...a zany premise...narrated with rueful humor and intelligence."-Publishers Weekly

"A superior series featuring superheroes...a delightfully imaginative speculation."
-Toronto Star

John Fortune-son of Peregine and Fortunato, two of the most powerful and popular Aces the world has ever known-has finally turned his card. He's an Ace! And proud of it... except that his new powers put him on a collision course with enemies he never knew he had. Is he the new messiah? Or the Anti-Christ? Or is he just a kid who's in over his head and about to drown?

It's really quite simple. Mr. Nobody wants to do his job. The Midnight Angel wants to serve her Lord. Billy Ray, dying from boredom, wants some action. John Nighthawk wants to uncover the awful secret behind his mysterious power. Fortunato wants to rescue his son from the clutches of a cryptic Vatican office. John Fortune just wants to catch Siegfried and Ralph's famous Vegas review.

The problem is that all roads, whether they start in Turin, Italy, Las Vegas, Hokkaido, Japan, Jokertown, Snake Hill, the Short Cut, or Yazoo City, Mississippi, lead to Leo Barnett's Peaceable Kingdom where the difference between the Apocalypse and Peace on Earth is as thin as a razor's edge and where Death himself awaits the final terrible turn of the card.

Splitting his life between the Empire State and The Land of Enchantment, John J. Miller currently resides in Albuquerque, N.M., with his wife Gail, five cats, two dogs, two goldfish, and too many books to count, approximately ten of which he's written. He's contemplating getting more goldfish, and, probably, books.
