Classis super hero story that is a must read for scifi/superhero fans
(Updated: June 18, 2017)
Very rarely if ever have a reread a book but Wild Cards 1 is one of those rare books. Well, full disclosure here, I actually listened to it as an audiobook this time. Wild Cards 1 is a must read classic super hero story from 1987 that still is great. The book consists of a collection of short stories about super powered Aces and mutated Jokers that were transformed by an alien virus.
Several of the stories were great such as those about Dr. Tachyon, the alien that couldn't prevent the release of the virus but is dedicated to helping those affected by it. Some of the stories are pretty graphic since most effected people don't get useful powers and instead are mutated. Some on the mutated women become prostitutes in order to survive.
If you like super hero stories like I do or are looking for a good collection of scifi short stories I highly recommend you read Wild Cards 1. I give it five out of five stars.
