INSIDE STRAIGHT by George R Martin and others

This is a Wild Cards novel.  For those of you who don’t know what Wild Card novels are… go here, I haven’t got the space or patience to explain them here.  I confess I hadn’t realised that there were quite so many WC novels: I shall have to hunt some down, because they are good fun.
Inside Straight mixes violent politics and a reality tv show with various “aces” – people who have remarkable powers of one sort or another.  Different writers have written different “chapters” in the book, but overall both the plot and the style are remarkably consistent.
Don’t get Inside Straight if you are looking for cutting edge fiction and startling ideas.  But if you want good, solid entertainment, you can’t go far wrong with these stories strung into a novel.
