Rereading JOKERS WILD

The Wild Cards Reread continues over at Tor.com with Katie Rask's insightful look at JOKERS WILD, the third volume in the series and our first full mosaic.

Head on over and join the fun at http://www.tor.com/2017/05/08/when-sex-death-and-kid-dinosaur-collide-wild-cards-iii-jokers-wild/ We'd love to know your thoughts.



I am, of course, far from objective, but INMNSHO this was one of the strongest volumes in the series, and a groundbreaking one -- the first time (not the last) that we would attempt to innovative (if exhausting) mosaic format, where the stories are woven together to form a seven-way collaborative novel. No shared world had ever done that before, and so far as I know, none has been so insane as to attempt it yet. Except for us. Wild Carders are nothing if not mad.

JOKERS WILD is also the climax of our first triad, and offers a final resolution to a major storyline.

So head on over and join Jetboygirl, Fortunato, Hiram Worchester, Roulette, Sewer Jack, Bagabond, Wraith, Yeoman, Demise, Popinjay, the Astronomer, and the rest of the merry gang.
