    This was pretty good, not quite a 4 Again it was short stories, but much tightly bound together over the course of the book There were several definite objectives that went through each story Very well done Several new characters were also introduced, but one of my favorites is Cap n Tripps Croyd also makes several short appearances Lots of fun.

    I liked the first volume, and absolutely hated this one I nearly stopped reading it several times, but cajoled myself into continuing each time because I hoped the next story would be better It never was.In short, I hated every character in this anthology except perhaps the Turtle Tom and Croyd Their stories were the only ones I read with at least some interest Fortunato, on the other hand, kept showing up in every other story, and each time he was mentioned I wished he would just disappear forever I hated him in the first volume and I hated him here His love for Eileen was entirely unbelievable and it seemed like women were objects to him really the trend of most of the volume, to be fair , so I felt no sense of loss when Eileen met her incredibly unfortunate end In By Lost Ways and Half Past Dead, when Fortunato started referring to Dr Tachyon as space faggot both internally and in dialogue with another character, I dare say I saw red not because I like Tachyon faaaaar far from it but because it just wasn t right I don t believe the story s intention was to make me accept it somehow or agree to it, but all it actually did was make me wish Fortunato died in some horrible accident, perhaps something involving getting fed into a wood chipper posthumously la Fargo.The anthology s overarching plot was terrible I hate gross aliens and I hate cultists, and I got both of those in spades har har see what I did there in this volume The only upshot was that towards the end of the book most of the cultists were killed or arrested in an ace raid There was also a lot of weird sex, almost all of it unnecessary like the sex scene on the Takisian spaceship in Relative Difficulties and don t get me started on the scifi elements of the volume Some of it was even exceptionally revolting the Astronomer s sex scene during the ritual sacrifice from If Looks Could Kill, anyone I read most of the volume with a look of disgust on my face I m afraid it might stick I m only giving this series one last shot because I bought the third volume before I even started reading this one I could never have guessed how dreadful it would turn out to be, so my hopes will be extremely low for the third volume I certainly would not recommend this instalment of the Wild Cards series to anyone No one deserves to have it inflicted upon them If you enjoyed this volume why don t you respect yourself

    There s 11 stories in this Mosaic novel , but only two main plots there s Jube, the slightly walrus shaped newsagents, who is actually not a joker but an alien, discovering that an alien Swarm, a yeast creature controlled by an intelligent mother is coming to Earth, and the ensuing war.Then, there s a Masonic conspiracy around the powerful ace called The Astronomer, looking for the last pieces to complete a mysterious alien device to call a being called TIAMAT note the Caps to Earth.This collection broadly follows storylines begun in the very first collection The beginnings of the Masonic twats in robes were shown when Fortunato discovered his powers and killed one of their members if I remember correctly The end of the whole story will be in the third collection, although this one also has a completed stand alone plot.I quite liked it, although I thought that the masonics were a bit ill defined, and shoehorned in to provide an opponent for the others to fight against.Also, the writer of Brennan still doesn t have a clue about how archery worksIf he was good enough to look up the concept of a compound bow, he might also have considered that it is pretty much physically impossible to sling such a bow across your torso You can also not lean on it, unless you re very short, because they re no than 3 ft tall They also cannot be seperated into parts fir transport, or strung and unstrung without considerable effort and material Such thing just irritate me p at least he didn t shoot 6 arrows in 9 seconds this time AanywhoooI liked Croyd s appearance in this one He s one of my favourite Wild Cards characters, as he is quite a nice guy, who may do questionable things to get by, but is never really evil Here, he gets paid by Jube to steal the body and belongings of a dead alien spy from a morgue In the course of this, pretty much everything goes wrong, the body is lost, dumped, stolen and otherwise mistreated several times, and in the end arrives at Jube s in a large jar and several doggie bagsAnother important story element is the hunt for an alien artifact that can teleport people away and generally do energy things It appears like a black bowling ball, and it intially snatched by a deranged baglady, who uses it to displace everybody who gets near Both the Masons and the goodies are trying to get it On the side of the goodies, it s mostly Tachyon, the Turtle, and Mark Meadows, who has created drugs which allow him to turn into a collection of different aces for a short time, mostly to the confusion of everyone around Meanwhile, the artifact changes hands from the baglady to a bunch of young thugs to Tachs family not a good thing.In general 8 10

    This installment of the Wild Cards saga was much cohesive than Wild Cards We followed only a few characters whom we got to know very well Jube, Dr Tachyon and some other old faces like The Great and Powerful Turtle Except everyone who we encountered at the height of their popularity or stigma has declined somewhat We also aw new faces, who were a treat to meet Captain Trips and all his friends, Water Lily Jane and Modular Man I loved Captain Trips as a byproduct of quiet little Brian Meadows from book 1 plus his alternate personas were super cool, and even better, brought on by ACID TRIPS What s not to like about that I enjoyed reading this book, but not as much as the first I had really enjoyed the alternate history of the aces and jokers world In this book, the controversy seems to have died down, and the Swarm becomes the focus the Masons were a great touch though, I really wanted the Astronomer to get bitch slapped by karma On a whole, read it you won t regret it I do regret that I have to wait for the new edition of Jokers Wild.

    This time around the Wild Card universe takes us trough an alien invasion, giving clever nods to ancient mythology and even the ctulhu mythos, while introducing several new characters like Walrus, the Astronomer, Dr Tachyon s family and their sentient ships Hellcat and Baby , Captain Trips, Modular Man, and many others.I was again mesmerized by this alternate Earth that George R R Martin and his friends created, even if it did not amaze me as much as the first volume, it felt as if I was reading about old friends Jokertown in itself is gripping, a city within the city, where everything seems to happen, a town of endless possibilities This second volume read like a pulp adventure, with alien invaders and a secret society of villains that s trying to rule the world against the good guys that are always saving the day in the nick of time Yet it was good, interesting and I m certain I m gonna keep reading the series Honestly, if you love sci fi, horror and superheroes then so should you.

    And so continues the saga of the wild cards the Aces and Joker survivors of the Wild Card biological weapon The cast list of players is still being expanded but the interesting thing here is that the main challenge is from another outside source this time the swarm and extra terrestrial threat that requires everyone to join together and temporarily put aside the differences and work together I must admit that even though the storyline was fun carrying on the tradition of the super hero feel I did get the feeling that the series is still finding its stride and getting used to it self There were still a lot of explanations of what was going on and why almost as much to convince themselves as there were to convince the reader for example That said it still has a fresh feel and does not fall in to the clich s you would expect to trip such a project up as this does that reflect the superior guidance of Mr Martin I wonder

    As usual for an anthology, I m going to post my thoughts on each story, but before I get to that, my thoughts on the book as a whole It was a big change from the previous book and that might be good, bad, or neutral to you The first book, our introduction to the Wild Cards universe, was basically a series of stories that took place in the same universe and used the same characters everyone LOVES to play with Croyd but there wasn t any unifying story outside of Dr Tachyon coming to terms with the effects of the virus But the stories mostly stood alone and even explored different narrative techniques like a Hunter S Thompson parody By contrast this book is one tight story that goes from beginning to end strongly being involved in each of the stories It also once again expands the Wild Cards universe, literally than metaphorically Where this works best is with the theory of the small man of history Many of the characters are just doing their own thing and only tangentially interacting with the PlotDevice. It s constantly changing hands and driving the plot and almost no one understands what s going on until near the end of the book But everyone s actions are leading towards the various major plot points of the anthology The only reason I m being a little cagey both here and in my status updates with a 20 30 year old story is because it s going to be a Hulu show pretty soon So I think that puts a fresh bit of spoiler paint on it Anyway, I really enjoyed revisiting this world and its characters That said, a few things haven t aged well particularly use of homophobic slurs that were de rigueur in the 80s and some of the female characters That said, I recommend it if you re into SF and a realistic version of an X Men crossed with some Fantastic Four section of the Marvel Universe.Now, the individual stories Pennies from Hell Fortunato, the half black half Japanese pimp who in the first book gained Tantric magic powers, solves a mystery A good pulp mystery with all that entails I think I spotted Zelazny s chimeric character at the climactic meeting A great reintroduction to the NYC of Wild Cards Jube One Impossible to talk about without ruining the final reveal, but suffice to say it s a brilliant use of the Wild Cards world to subvert expectations Also love reading about intel informants Usually pretty neat stories Unto the Sixth Generation Connected somewhat to the Jube stories A warning that goes unheard Jube Two A continuation of both Unto the Sixth Gen and the previous Jube story It gets filled in a bit as well as introducing us to of Jube s life and friends Ashes to Ashes Continues exactly at the end of Jube 2 The stories seem connected this anthology than the first one Croyd again A really, really fun story as he does a task for Jube that connects all of the stories including the Fortunato one Unto the Sixth Generation Part 1 A modern Frankenstein story Alien invasion Wonder if this leads to a different modern world for Wild Cards or if it swings back towards our trajectory In other words, do we still have Reagan, Bush, Clinton, etc Unto the Sixth Generation Part 2 The aftermath of the Alien invasion Hmmgentrification was a thing in the 80s A terrifying end, but at least progress has been made in the stories that both started with Fortunato and Jube Jube 3 Jube makes a plan in the aftermath of the previous chapters If Looks Could Kill A guy with the ability to kill others by making them experience his death gets involved in the book s overarching plot Jube Four He starts workign with Chrysalis Love the trope of no one believing honesty because the truth is too ridiculous Unto the Sixth Generation Epilogue Modman s creator is robbed and somethin changes hands again Winter s Chill Of course this is GRRM s entry A realistic version of what I think might have happened to Peter Parker or any other child superhero as they grew up We catch up with The Turtle Learn about some tragedy Perhaps also a setup for future books with the concept of latent Wild Cards And The Device once again changes hands I think the cover on Good Reads makes sense than the cover from the Tor re release It s a picture of Jube Jube Five Jube s storyline crosses directly with the antagonists from the first story now Relative Difficulties That ship we learned about in the previous Jube chapter.now we deal with it And so ends another chapter of Dr Tachyon s life We learn a bit about Takisian culture and technology The item shifts owners once again With a little help from his friends a detective story with Dr Tachyon The mystery is solved, we encounter foes from a previous story The main story of the anthology continues With all I ve learned about Tiamat from this book, I think I can guess what happens in the next Expanse book the one that came out in March 2019 Tiamat s Wrath Jube Six Jube reflects on what has happened since the last Jube story while he heads towards a meeting By lost ways A return to the antagonists of this book An innocent young lady gets caught up in the antagonists plots Overall a fun story Although things got absurdly chaotic in the climax I wonder if she s the girl from the Tor re release cover redesign Frankly, given the novel s focus, I think the Jubal cover is a better one Mr Koyama s Comet A very fun short story that seems to have no relevance to the book until the final, fun twist Although I was starting to see where it was going just before the twist Half Past Dead Finally learn who s playing The Green Arrow in town Great mystery story, very pulpy And I believe the main antagonist has now been dealt with Jube Seven Everything is completed.
