Praise for the Wild Cards series

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

“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 onHigh 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

"Martin has assembled an impressive array of writers. . . . Progressing through the decades, Wild Cards keeps its momentum to the end."Locus

"The shared-world series known as Wild Cards has had a long and illustrious history of contributors and achievements."—SciFi.com
