Aces High


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

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Instead of dealing with old lefty politics, we move up to the Eighties and an alien invasion.

Find out a bit more about the bigger universe this storyline inhabits.

The short story format just isn’t really working for me. To much jumping around, with lots of details simply inferred. There were times I had to backup to make sure I hadn’t missed a whole story or something.

I’ll probably read one more as I am enjoying this series, just not really enjoying it. And I’d rather try new books.

I like the premise, about aliens using our planet as a testing lab and the results.

Didn’t care so much for a jaded alt-history left leaning retell.

This just reminded me of Watchmen, in that the super powered are simply flawed humans. I don’t like that.
