Wild Cards II Aces High edited by George R. R. Martin

The Wild Card series is difficult to review.  I always have trouble with short story collections.  The intent here is to tie the short stories together into a unified whole.  Overall they did that well.  Several of the stories stopped abruptly but the ball was merely juked around and not dropped.  

The series is good.  I find the genetic manipulation by the Takisian virus reasonably plausible which add to the believability of the stories.  The different styles of the different authors provided a some what disjointed read but not so much that you lost interest in the overall plot of the Swarm danger. 

I enjoyed the book.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
