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.

Feb 12, 2019

In this episode we discuss the second half of Turn of the Cards (Wild Cards Book 12).

Show Notes

Short and sweet show notes this week:

  • Please add to our Wild Cards Songs playlist on Spotify, and let us know (via email or on Twitter) your rationale for anything you do add. Section titles, implied lyrics, characters based on songs, songs explicit, implicit, and implied--we want them all.
  • Are you an unpublished or independently published author with a manuscript burning a hole in your pocket? Please have a look at the Terms and Conditions of the First Novel Prize, then send it right over.
  • Ben has asked me to say "it turns out the original M16 models did have full auto; it was limited to 3 round burst in the M16A2" so please don't get too upset for whatever gun thing he said in this podcast that was wrong.

Thank you for your patience, listeners. We will see you again soon for Season 2, starting with Book 13, CARD SHARKS.
