About this item

In this revised collection of classic Wild Cards stories, the spotlight is on the most unusual Wild Cards of them all -- the Deuces, or people with minor superpowers. But their impact on the world should not be underestimated, as we see how they've affected the course of Wild Cards' alternate history. In Deuces Down, iconic celebrities and landmark events are seen in a whole new light, such as John Jos. Miller's exciting 1969 World Series between the Baltimore Orioles and the Brooklyn Dodgers; Michael Cassutt's first moon landing, when the world wasn't watching; Walter Simons' Great New York City Blackout of 1977; and Melinda M. Snodgrass's account of Grace Kelly's mysterious disappearance during the filming of The French Lieutenant's Woman. Edited by fantasy superstar George R.
