Knaves Over ueens Wild Cards #26Ogether with the Enigma ace Alan Turing set up a special organization named the Order of the Silver Helix They will need all of the wild cards they can find if they are to deal with the terrifying mutations spawned by the virusEdited by New York Times bestselling author George R R Martin and Melinda M Snodgrass Knaves Over ueens features the writing talents of Paul Cornell Marko Kloos Mark Lawrence Kevin Andrew Murphy Emma Newman Over ueens Wild MOBI #237 Peter Newman Peadar O Guilin Melinda M Snodgrass Caroline Spector and Charles StrossNow in development for TV Rights to develop Wild Cards have been acuired by Universal Cable Product. A kind of hit and miss collection of Wild Cards stories set in the UK Sometimes not so U actually I didn't really enjoy it as much as most of the previous volumes; it didn't have the same connections between characters and stories that made the original books so enjoyable for me nor the linkage of historical extrapolation that have been prevalent in the recent Tor volumes There were some good origin style stories such as Kevin Andrew Murphy's Flint and Peter Newman's excellent Twisted Logic but several of the entries struck me as okay stories that lacked a Wild Cards feel such as the Mark Lawrence Emma Newman and Peadar O Guilin entries I thought the Stross was okay but got nothing from the Cornell I enjoyed the Caroline Spector story the Markos Kloos was okay and my favorite was Melinda Snodgrass telling of the early days of her popular schizo hero NoelNoelle friends It's not a bad book but didn't fit my idea of Takisian chronology
