Joker Moon (Wild Cards #29) - George R. R. Martin7.76

Edited by George R. R. Martin.

The return of the famous shared-world superhero books created and edited by fantasy titan George R.R. Martin.

In the aftermath of World War II, the Earth’s population was devastated by a terrifying alien virus. Those who survived were changed for ever. This is the story of that world.

Theodorus was a dreamer.

As a child, he dreamed of aeroplanes, rockets and outer space. When the wild card virus touched him and transformed him into a monstrous snail centaur weighing several tons, his boyhood dreams seemed out of reach, but a Witherspoon is not so easily defeated. Years and decades passed, and Theodorus grew to maturity and came into his fortune... but still his dream endured.

But now when he looked upward into the night sky, he saw more than just the Moon... he saw a joker homeland, a refuge where the outcast children of the wild card could make a place of their own, safe from hate and harm. 

An impossible dream, some said. Others, alarmed by the prospect, brought all their power to bear to oppose him. Theodorus persisted...

...never dreaming that the Moon was already inhabited. And the Moon Maid did not want company.
 
For decades, George R.R. Martin – bestselling author of A Song of Ice and Fire – has collaborated with an ever-shifting ensemble of science fiction and fantasy icons to create the amazing Wild Cards universe.
