The Wild Cards Take Brazil

All you Wild Cards fans out there... and those of you who will be (we hope) soon... should head over to Tor.com and meet the newest ace in the WC universe. The Recycler hails from the slums of Rio, and we think you're going to like him as much as we do.

The story is "Discards." The Hugo-winning author is David D. Levine.

(The art is by the one and only John Picacio).



You can read "Discards" for free here: http://www.tor.com/2016/03/30/discards/

(And if you like that one, there are five other Wild Cards originals available on Tor.com, by the likes of Walter Jon Williams, Carrie Vaughn, Paul Cornell, Cherie Priest, and Daniel Abraham. Seek and ye shall find. Jetboy did not die in vain!)

Re: Just finished...
As a brazilian myself, I'm always eager to see stories set in Rio, even though I'm not a carioca, I understand it's the city most foreigners will have heard about, now, what I found tiring in the story was the constant use of portuguese words mixed among the english ones. Some of them, like Curinga instead of Joker, I completely understand, but I don't see the need to use bandidos and traficantes instead of bandits and drug dealers.
Also, considering how most brazilians treat homossexual people, I'd say that the treatment to jokers would be worse than what is described here.
