Reviews

Review by Library Journal (1988-06-15)

The alien "wild card" virus has left its legacy on earth in the form of powerful "aces" and deformed "jokers'.' In 1986, a fact-finding commission of aces, jokers, and "naturals" tours the world in search of other victims of the disease that altered humanity. Encounters with voodoo sorcerers in Haiti, Islamic extremists in Syria, and Mayan activists in Central America lend an exotic air to this collaborative effort by 11 authors including Stephen Leigh, Victor W. Milan, and Melinda M. Snodgrass. Recommended for libraries that own previous Wild Card titles. JC
