Series A wild cards mosaic novel
Wild cards.
Note "A Tom Doherty Associates book."
Summary "In this revised collection of classic Wild Cards stories, the spotlight is on the most unusual Wild Cards of them all--the Deuces, or people with minor superpowers. In Deuces Down, iconic celebrities and landmark events are seen in a whole new light, such as John Jos. Miller's exciting 1969 World Series between the Baltimore Orioles and the Brooklyn Dodgers; Michael Cassutt's first moon landing, when the world wasn't watching; Walter Simons' Great New York City Blackout of 1977; and Melinda M. Snodgrass's account of Grace Kelly's mysterious disappearance during the filming of The French Lieutenant's Woman. Deuces Down also features brand-new stories from Carrie Vaughn, Mary Anne Mohanraj, and Caroline Spector"--Provided by publisher
