Description

Now in development for TV: 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.

In 1946, an alien virus that rewrites human DNA was accidentally unleashed in the skies over New York City. It killed ninety percent of those it infected. Nine percent survived to mutate into tragically deformed creatures. And one percent gained superpowers. The Wild Cards shared-universe series, created and edited since 1987 by New York Times #1 bestseller George R. R. Martin ("The American Tolkien"—Time magazine) along with Melinda Snodgrass, is the tale of the history of the world since then—and of the heroes among the one percent.

Ranging from New York and New England to ravaged Africa and New Orleans, encompassing war, devastation, and stubborn hope, Suicide Kings advances the story of the Wild Cards, and their struggle to be fully human in a world that fears and mistrusts them.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

    I may be a bit biased because I grew up on superheroes and the like, but I really do like what they have done with this. There are times when I get upset and there are those times when I laugh, but is that not what a good story is supposed to do? If so then these are great stories because they tried to keep it as real as possible. Some live, some die. In the end it's just like life to throw large changes at us that we are forced to accept and adapt to. I love these stories and they never fail to keep me coming back! Great job guys. If you love or even just like superheroes, then this is for you! Hope you enjoy it as much as I have and continue to do so.
