Deuces Down

Deuces Down Оценка: 4.3 (13)
Serie: _sf
Genre: thriller
Annotation:
An anthology of stories

Martin has assembled an impressive array of writers & Progressing through the decades, Wild Cards keeps its momentum to the end & I m looking forward to the next episodes in this saga of mutant Americana.  Locus

Well written and suspenseful and a good read & The authors had a lot of fun rewriting recent American history.  Aboriginal Science Fiction

Commendable writing & a zany premise & narrated with rueful humor and intelligence.  Publishers Weekly

***

The first fifteen volumes of the Wild Cards series concerned themselves primarily with aces (those given superhuman powers by the Wild Cards virus) and jokers (those whom the virus transformed into freaks and monsters). But in this all-new collection of Wild Cards stories, Deuces Down will focus on some characters less often in the spotlight: the deuces. In Wild Card slang, a deuce is an ace whose superpower is tiny, trivial, sometimes silly.

As with the other books in the series, Deuces Down is set in an alternate, shared-world universe. It`s here that you`ll find the never-before-told tales of the exciting 1969 World Series between the Baltimore Orioles and the Brooklyn Dodgers; the first moon landing, when the whole world wasn`t watching; the Great New York City Blackout of 1977; and Grace Kelly`s mysterious disappearance during the filming of The French Lieutenant`s Woman.
