In 1946, an alien virus that rewrites human DNA was
accidentally unleashed in the skies over New York City. It
killed ninety percent of those it infected. Nine percent of
those who survived mutated into tragically deformed
creatures. And one percent gained superpowers. The Wild
Cards shared-universe series, created and edited since 1987
by New York Times #1 bestseller George R. R. Martin along
with Melinda Snodgrass, is the tale of the history of the
world since thenâ€”and of the heroes among that one percent.
Originally begun in 1987, long before George R. R. Martin
became a household name among fantasy readers ("The
American Tolkien" --Time magazine), the Wild Cards series
earned a reputation among connoisseurs for its smart
reimagining of the superhero idea. Now, with Inside
Straight, the Wild Cards continuity jumps forward to a new
generation of major characters, entirely accessible to
Martin's hundreds of thousands of new readers, with all-
original stories by Martin himself, along with Daniel
Abraham, Michael Cassutt, and Stephen Leigh, among others.
