Présentation de l'éditeur

On September 15, 1946, a biological weapon created by an alien race was accidentally detonated above the streets of New York City, killing countless numbers of men, women, and children. But those who survived the initial explosion soon began to wish they had died also, once they discovered they had been forever mutated by the virus unleashed in the blast. . . .

When the first volume in the Wild Cards series made its debut in 1986, it caused a sensation in the science fiction and fantasy communities. Here were stories of superpowered beings in a real world setting, detailing the lives of "Aces," those given superhuman powers by the "Wild Cards" virus, and "Jokers," those whom the virus transformed into freaks and monsters. Over the course of fifteen volumes, the world created by editor George R.R. Martin and some of SF's most talented writers was explored through the eyes of both Aces and Jokers across the globe.

In this all-new collection of Wild Cards stories, the spotlight is on the most unusual Wild Cards of them all "the Deuces." As you'll discover in this thrilling collection, their role in the Wild Cards Universe is just as important as that of the Aces and the Jokers. In fact, their actions have affected the course of Wild Cards history.

Set in an alternate, shared-world universe, Deuces Down is the one place you'll find such never-before-told tales as John J. Miller's exciting 1969 World Series between the Baltimore Orioles and the Brooklyn Dodgers; Michael Cassutt's first moon landing, when the whole world wasn't watching; Walton Simons' Great New York City Blackout of 1977; Melinda M. Snodgrass's account of Grace Kelly's mysterious disappearance during the filming of The French Lieutenant's Woman. It's a strange and terrifying world, where anything can happen. A world of Wild Cards.

As an early fan of the Wild Card books, it was great to get caught up on some of the later books in the series. I can't wait to read more...

Good book in the Wild Cards series; absolutely DO NOT order it on Kindle until they fix the formatting issues. Almost unreadable as it is.

Been wanting to read this for a LONG time as I've read all the other Wild Cards novels. I'm happy to report that the Kindle edition is nearly perfect and doesn't suffer from some of the OCR skips and errors in other old out-of-print books.

As far as the stories themselves: most of them are very good and they bridge a gap in the shared universe of the Wild Cards I didn't even know existed. Glad to have finally got it.

I don't know why I stopped reading Wild Cards, I always enjoyed the series but somewhere along the line the books stopped coming out regularly and I didn't think to look for new ones. This was a particularly interesting volume focused on Deuces, there also seemed to be a subtheme looking at the danger of being a latent... I am encouraged to start buying books in the series and getting current.

Book is good, read it! Note that the kindle version is kind of a mess though. Looks like someone just OCR-ed a printed copy and didn't bother to edit it. If they had even just spent a few minutes looking at the formatting they would have noticed the problems- wouldn't even have to read the text to see it needs proof reading. There's not even a table of contents.
