    1. I was truly worried when I started this book The previous one was, in my opinion, the weakest of the series thus far I feared the series had hopped the fish But this one.This one was amazing It s the secret history of the Wild Cards world So many tantalizing stories that were briefly mentioned in other books get fully explained here Numerous name droppings of all your favorite characters.I think this might be the best one since the first one.


    2. Til I Kissed You Wu Chop Chop Wu does a great job of taking a character that really doesn t seem that interesting and turning him into a living, breathing human being that you re rooting for The historical setting seems fine enough at first, then he twists it around in a truly surprising way Overall, this is a great start to the new book 8 10.The Crooked Man Snodgrass Finn It s great to read a short about Finn, who s been a tertiary character in the Wild Card books for some time The story about [...]


    3. The Wild Card series is known for mixing comic book like super powers with gritty alternate history story lines, and the Card Shark series is no exception Filled with a new set of characters, a few old favorites, and Marylin Monroe, this book has of an ongoing storyline than the other anthologies The device of extended detective interviews is weak, as the stories delve quickly into novella style authorship, but still make for some good yarns I am debating continuing on with this series.


    4. Card Sharks is the 13th entry into the Wild Cards saga It is a return to the linked narrative of differing authors and is very cohesive, as opposed to some of the earlier compendiums All the differing authors do a then credible job of introducing a conspiracy against the Aces and the Jokers and they also all are accomplished writers with great sci fi word crafting skills Victor Milan and Roger Zelazny are especially crisp in their writing but unfortunately this is to be Zelazny s last contribut [...]


    5. Card Sharks Book of the new cycle Edited by George R R MartinA massive fire has ripped through Joker town church on Black Queens night, killing hundreds of Jokers celebrating this grim memorial Rev Quid is saved by Quaziman a time traveler joker who has a hard time keeping his mind and his thoughts, let alone the rest of his body with in a particular movement They enlist the help of a new Nat reporter to investigate the crime she discovers a whole history of Joker wild car atrocities that span t [...]


    6. Card Sharks is the thirteenth Wild Cards volume, and the first that was not published by Bantam This Baen edition has the phrase Book I of a New Cycle displayed prominently on the cover Many of the writers from the previous volumes are back, including Zelazny, Snodgrass, Milan, and Leigh, and we have great returning characters such as Croyd and Puppetman The frame has jumped a bit, but the feel is familiar and this is one of the best multiple author, multiple view point, mosaic novels of the ser [...]


    7. THIS is the book I was waiting for A revitalization of the Wild Card series, Card Sharks centers around a global conspiracy against wild card victims Told in flashbacks it does an excellent job of melding real history and wild card history together, while drawing in past characters to complete the saga.This book starts a new chapter in the Wild Card series centering around this anti wild card conspiracy It s become my favorite since the first Wild Cards book.Deftly done


    8. This was the first time I was exposed to the Wild Cards concept, and found it to be quite readable Each author did a good job in bringing to life the unusual characters that appear throughout the book.
