Wild Cards: Death Draws Five

$19.95

By George R. R. Martin

Signed Trade Paperback

Mr. Nobody wants to do his job. The Midnight Angel wants to serve her Lord. Billy Ray wants some action. John Nighthawk wants to uncover the secret behind his mysterious power. Fortunato wants to rescue his son from the clutches of a cryptic Vatican office. John Fortune wants to catch Siegfried and Ralph’s famous Vegas review. The problem is that all roads, no matter where they start, lead to Leo Barnett’s Peaceable Kingdom where the difference between the Apocalypse and Peace on Earth is as thin as a razor’s edge and where Death himself awaits the final terrible turn of the card.

Wild Cards: Death Draws Five

Signed Trade Paperback

Now in development for TV!

EXPLORE THE WILD CARDS UNIVERSE

An alien virus has changed the course of history, and the surviving population of Manhattan struggles to understand the new world left in its wake. Natural humans share the rough city with those given extraordinary―and sometimes terrifying―traits. While most manage to coexist in an uneasy peace, not everyone is willing to adapt.

Rights to develop Wild Cards for TV have been acquired by Universal Cable Productions, the team that brought you The Magicians and Mr. Robot, with the co-editor of Wild Cards, Melinda Snodgrass as executive producer
