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.Â Nine percent
survived to mutate into tragically deformed creatures.Â And
one percent gained superpowers.Â The Wild Cards
shared-universe series, created and edited since 1987 by New
York Times #1 bestseller George R. R. Martin ("The American
Tolkien" --Time magazine) along with Melinda Snodgrass, is
the tale of the history of the world since thenâ€”and of the
heroes among the one percent.
Now a new generation of heroes
has taken its place on the world stage, its members crucial
players in international events. At the United Nations,
veteran ace John Fortune has assembled a team of young aces
known as the Committee, to assist at trouble spots around
the worldâ€“including a genocidal was in the Niger Delta, an
invasion of zombies in hurricane ravaged New Orleans, and a
freak nuclear explosion in a small Texas town.
