Books in the Series: Wild Cards

Series Description:
Wild Cards is a science fiction and superhero series set in a shared universe and created by a group of New Mexico science fiction authors, who were inspired by a long running role playing campaign. The series, which has been mostly edited by George R. R. Martin, relates an alternate history of the earth after World War II. In 1946 an alien virus that rewrites human DNA is accidentally unleashed in the skies over New York City. It kills 90 % of those who come into contact with it (referred to as 'drawing the Black Queen'). However, 9% mutate into deformed creatures (known as 'Jokers') and 1% gain superpowers (known as 'Aces'). While most of the books are made up of individual stories, some are feature length novels, some are 'Mosaic Novels' and all follow a central theme.
