Book Description

An original novel set in the widely popular Wild Cards world created by science fiction scion George R.R. Martin. Edited by Hugo award winning and New York times bestselling author, George R.R. Martin. It's really quite simple. Mr. Nobody wants to do his job. The Midnight Angel wants to serve her Lord. Billy Ray, dying from boredom, wants some action. John Nighthawk wants to uncover the awful secret behind his mysterious power. Fortunato wants to rescue his son from the clutches of a cryptic Vatican office. John Fortune just wants to catch Siegfried and Ralph's famous Vegas review. The problem is that all roads, whether they start in Turin, Italy, Las Vegas, Hokkaido, Japan, Jokertown, Snake Hill, the Short Cut, or Yazoo City, Mississippi, lead to Leo Barnett's Peaceable Kingdon where the difference between the Apocalypse and Peace on Earth is as thin as a razor's edge and where Death himself awaits the final terrible turn of the card. Wild Cards: Death Draws Five is an original novel set in this shared world utilizing characters from other Wild Card adventures. John J. Miller Splitting his life between the Empire State and The Land of Enchantment, John J. Miller currently resides in Albuquerque, NM, with his wife Gail, five cats, two dogs, two goldfish, and too many books to count, approximately ten of which he's written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazon needs to fix 24 July 2010

Amazon has fixed the book, and even thogh they had refunded my money already they put the fixed book back in my linbrary. Great customer service.

July 2010
I also bought this kindle book and it will not work. After spending an hour on the phone with support un-installing and re-installing the PC kindle software the 'screener' decided to create a ticket for tech support. He immediately found a queue of will not work tickets and said he had no idea if Amazon would even try to fix it. I paid 12.97 for the book and now it is down to 9.97. Like the other reviewer I do not understand why they continue to sell a broken product.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm a big fan 23 Aug. 2010
By Walter E. Starr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The original print version of this book only has 600 known copies. This is one of the best Wild Cards books in the series and it is absolutely essential for any Wild Cards fan. I have purchased the Kindle version and I can verify, it works and you can read it with the Kindle software.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars DRM issue fixed 5 Aug. 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like the other reviews below, this book would not open on my Kindle initially. I was contacted this week by Amazon, telling me that the book had been fixed and that I would be receiving a full refund in addition to the new version of the book. It opens and reads fine now and I'm enjoying the book so far.
3.0 out of 5 stars Ebook editing still disappoints. 16 Aug. 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read the entire Wild Cards series, and I was glad I was finally able to get my hands on this hard-to-find volume from the Kindle store. But although I love the stories and characters beyond description, the ebook version of DD5 is turning out to be very disappointing. Though the book started out well, about a quarter of the way into the book the signs of bad transcription from print to electronic begins to really show through: Missing section breaks; misspelled words ("o"s becoming "a"s); the kind of thing that turns up when a book is scanned for an electronic file and no one puts in an effort to proof it. And at times, the frequency of errors begins to distract from the reading experience. Editors and publishers, you really need to get your acts together and do better on this.

If you can ignore the obvious transcription errors, however, you're in for a great romp of a story. As usual with the Wild Cards series, being able to remember the now-immense cast of characters really helps to get the full impact of the story and the many character interactions, and to understand why this alternate-reality universe is the way it is. But the stories are written well enough that you can follow the stories without all that baggage, and still enjoy an exciting, funny, adventurous, sexy ride.
4.0 out of 5 stars wildcard fever 15 Jan. 2015
By irishwolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A funny, fast paced, sometimes sad tale of the worlds most powerful ace fight his greatest battle to save his son and his own soul. Any followers of the old run of the wild cards will love reading about some of their old friends, while those reading the new series should read this as it transition the old to the new.
Well written and worth of a prominent place in any wildcarder's collection. Accessible to new readers, it covers all the important plots that lead to this moment without boring the veteran readers of this series.
