    By George R. R. Martin

    Signed Trade Paperback

    Wild Cards Volume 8

    By George R. R. Martin

    Signed Hardcover

    Perfect for old fans and new readers alike, High Stakes delves deeper into the world of aces, jokers, and the hard-boiled men and women of the Fort Freak police precinct in a pulpy, page-turning novel of superheroics and Lovecraftian horror.
