Comments & Further Information

First UK edition hardback with a single #1 as the number sequence indicating a first printing.  Unread but described as very good only due to some damage to the rear panel of the dust jacket with corresponding damage to the rear board and minor bump to head of book spine, caused in transit.

SYNOPSIS:  “In the aftermath of World War II, the Earth’s population was devastated by a terrifying virus.  Those who survived were changed for ever… and now the virus has reached Britain…

Queen Margaret rules over a country in which such legendary figures as Herne the Hunter, Spring-heeled Jack and Babh, the goddess of war, roam at will.  Her Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill – gifted with extraordinary longevity – together with the Enigma ace – Alan Turing – set up a special organization named the Order of the Silver Helix.  They will need all the wild cards they can find if they are to deal with the terrifying mutations thrown up by the virus.

The first ever Wild Cards novel set in the UK, features a stunning collection of original stories from Paul Cornell, Marko Kloos, Mark Lawrence, Kevin Andrew Murphy, Emma Newman, Peter Newman, Peadar O Guilin, Melinda M Snodgrass, Caroline Spector and Charles Stross.”
