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.

Aug 5, 2018

In this episode we discuss the first half of Dead Man's Hand (Wild Cards Book 7). The authors that contributed to this book are:

  • John J. Miller
  • George R.R. Martin

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.

Thanks to F Douglas Wall for getting in touch again, which contributed to our discussion this week. You too could get a shout-out in the show notes. Just email us with any questions, comments, or corrections at, or find us on Twitter. You can also join the conversation over at Reddit.


Odds and Ends

We had some technical issues this week which meant we lost a lot of our introduction. Ben has been soundly beaten; he promises never to allow this to happen again.

That Falcon Crest episode Ben mentions might be S2 E22, the very last entry discussed here.

Here is the joker/ace taxonomy article we mentioned (not Tor, but Wild Cards World instead).
