The first volume of George R. Martin’s WILD CARDS Shared World series, which was reprinted after a decade – and expanded with new, original Substance.
Some were called Experts – with superhuman mental and physical abilities. Others were called jokers – with bizarre mental or physical disabilities. Some have put their talents at the service of humanity. Used their powers for evil. Wild Cards is history.
Originally released in 1987, Wild Cards I contains powerful stories by Roger Zelazny, Walter Jon Williams, Howard Waldrop, Lewis Shiner and George RR Martin himself. And this new, expanded edition contains more original stories that are at the beginning of the Wild Cards universe from eminent new authors such as Hugo winner David Levine, well-known screenwriter and novelist Michael Cassutt and New York Times bestseller Carrie Vaughn.
