Book Description

Oct. 26 2004 Wild Cards (Book 3)
The streets of New York have erupted in celebration of Wild Card Day-the annual event held every September 15th to remember the dead and cherish the lving. It is a day for fireworks and street fairs and parades, for political rallies and memorial banquets, for drinking and fighting in the alleys. With each passing year, the festivities become larger and more fevered. And this year-1986, the fortieth anniversary-promises to be the biggest and best Wild Card Day ever. The media and tourists have discovered the celebration, and taverns and restaurants expect record-setting business. But lurking in the background is a twisted genius who cares nothing for fun and festivity. The Astronomer has only one concern: destruction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now This is What I'm Talking About! Sept. 18 2012

Jokers Wild, the third book and first mosaic novel in the Wild Cards series, is an epic, sprawling adventure that follows our now-familiar super-powered protagainists across the span of the fourtieth Wild Cards Day as the try to stop the Astronomer from killing all the Aces that took him down in the previous book, Aces High. The mosaic format flows very well under Martin's steady guide, and never feels off-putting. Even the dreaded Mafia storyline (dreaded not because I'm scared of the Mafia or anything, but rather because this is a book with a Sorcerer-Pimp, a makeshift detective duo, and an alien from outer space running around! The Mafia is a bunch of guys with guns in this story, and not much more. Sorry, but I'd take the Sorcerer-Pimp over them any day.) flows in a series of easy to digest chunks, so that no one story is overwhelming to the point of needing a break. I especially love the long sequence at the end, as each of the characters go their separate ways. This is the All-Stars of Wild Cards, pure and simple. Everyone gets a moment in the sun, every storyline is handled accordingly, and it never stops feeling fun. This book is the one that made me love Wild Cards.
