Paperback
The return of the famous shared-world superhero books created and edited by George R. R. Martin, author of A GAME OF THRONES

The heart of the world is bleeding, the People’s Paradise of Africa is having it out with the Caliphate, and the Sudan is a charnel house. The powers-that-be aren’t doing anything. The UN might set up a committee. But the time for action is now. So, one by one, the aces join the fight, each for their own reasons …

The Wild Card virus kills 90 percent of the folks who catch it, but those who survive gain special powers. Some become grotesque mutants like the half-man, half-rhino Denys Finch. They’re the jokers. Some get trivial powers. They’re deuces. And some – the aces – develop wild superpowers. Like Bubbles, who can absorb any amount of energy. Or Bugsy, who can turn his body into wasps. Or Double Helix, the shape-changing, teleporting assassin.

And Tom Weathers, the Radical. The strongest, most versatile of the aces – he can fly, he’s strong enough to rip the turret off a tank, he can shoot heat rays from his hands … but his greatest strength is his total conviction in the rightness of his cause. Whatever the cause is at the moment.

At this particular moment, he’s found a way to get more aces for the People’s Paradise. Lots more aces. And that’s where the trouble starts …
