From the mind of George R. R. Martin, author of The Game of Thrones, comes the Wild Cards universe.

“Perhaps the most original and provocative of the shared worlds books.” —Peter S. Beagle, author of The Last Unicorn

In the aftermath of World War II, an alien virus struck the Earth, endowing a handful of survivors with extraordinary powers. Some were called aces—those with superhuman mental and physical abilities. Others were termed jokers—cursed with bizarre mental or physical disabilities. Some turned their talents to the service of humanity. Others used their powers for evil. Wild Cards is their story.

Rights to develop Wild Cards for TV have been acquired by Universal Cable Productions, the team that brought you The Magicians and Mr. Robot, with the co-editor of Wild Cards, Melinda Snodgrass as executive producer.
