Aces & Jokers: A Wild Cards Podcast

We’re reading and discussing Wild Cards, a set of shared-world superhero novels edited by George R. R. Martin. We don't own Wild Cards and this is not an official podcast. We use brief clips from the audiobooks and other sources to illustrate and aid discussion. Spoilers abound.

In this episode we discuss the first half of Ace in the Hole (Wild Cards Book 6). The authors that contributed to this book are:

  • Walter John Williams
  • Stephen Leigh (S. L. Farrell)
  • Victor Milán
  • Walton Simons
  • Melinda M. Snodgrass

Our fantastic theme tune is Ace Of Spades (8 Bit Remix Cover Version) by the great folks at 8 Bit Universe. Follow them on YouTube and Twitter.

YES, Angel knows there will be serious and terrible incest in the Jumper saga, but Ben doesn't. (If you're reading this and, like Ben, you're wondering where the incest is--well, just you wait.)
