Ace in the Hole (Wild Cards #6) - George R. R. Martin

Edited by George R.R. Martin.

Authors: George R. R. Martin, Walton Simons, Victor Milán, Melinda M. Snodgrass, Stephen Leigh and Walter Jon Williams.

Like the third volume in the Wild Cards series (Jokers Wild), this volume uses the format of a mosaic novel, where several writers write individual storylines which were then edited together into one novel length story.

Continuing the best-sage alternate universe series edited by George R.R. Martin, the sixth volume in the Wild Cards saga is set in Atlanta of 1988. Terror stalks the halls of the Omni convention center. For a fanatical religious leader has vowed to crush the rights of all Wild Cards, and a hidden Ace wields a terrifying power to determine the outcome of the convention. Against this backdrop of passion and intrigue, a handful of Aces and Jokers struggle for control of a nation.
