Martin, Roger Zelazny, Pat Cadigan, Lewis Shiner, Walter Jon Williams, and others.

    " Another fantastic book in this series. It didn't feel as episodic as the first book; the storyline sticks very close to the main antagonism. A great read for fans of neuvo pulp scifi. "

    " I still prefer the first book slightly only. This is the 2nd in the series and it makes me want to grab the 3rd book which unfortunately is not available for loaning in my country "

    " Awesome! Continuing with the fantastic group of characters (and many new ones) in the fascinating world created in the first Wild Cards book. I'm excited to start the third book in the series! "

    " A welcome follow-on to the first Wild Cards anthology, with an overarching plot to tie the various short stories together. Enough to have me check-out the next book in the series, and see what follows. "

    " The second book improves upon the first with better stories that are closer, as well as the political agenda that has evolved from the wild card virus. Looking forward to the third book. "

Whenever he’s allowed to leave, he returns to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he lives with the lovely Parris, a big white dog called Mischa, and two cats named Augustus and Caligula, who think they run the place.
