Down and Dirty
Wild Cards VBook - 2015
"Let the secret history of the world be told--of the alien virus that struck Earth after World War II, and of the handful of the survivors who found they now possessed superhuman powers. Some were called Aces, endowed with powerful mental and physical prowness. The others were Jokers, tormented by bizarre mind or body disfigurements. Some served humanity. Others wreaked terror. And now, forty years later, as a gang war between the Shadow Fists and the mafia rages out of control in the streets of Jokertown, Aces and Jokers go underground--to wage their own war against the powers of the netherworld. Edited by George R. R. Martin and f4eaturing the talents of John J. Miller, Roger Zelazny, Leanne C. Harper, Arthur Byron Cover, Melina M.
