Publisher's Summary

Back in print after a decade is Wild Cards III: Jokers Wild, featuring fiction by George R. R. Martin, Roger Zelazny, Walter Jon Williams, and others.
On September 15, 1946, the Wild Card virus was released, spreading a wave of mutations around the globe. "Aces" were endowed with extraordinary powers while "Jokers" were cursed with bizarre mental or physical disabilities. September 15th is now Wild Card Day. With each passing year, the festivities become larger and more fevered. And 1986 - the 40th anniversary - promises to be the biggest Wild Card Day ever.
But in New York City, not everyone is celebrating: The Astronomer, a twisted, powerful genius, has been planning his own special festivities for Wild Card Day...a day of revenge against those who have opposed him....

Felicia Day for "Bagabond"
Ron Donachie for "Hiram Worchester"
Pam Grier for "Roulette"
Stephen McHattie for "Demise"

Luke Daniels is king

This story wasn't quite as good as the previous books. also, Luke Daniels reading in the previous ones is so good.

I'm sad to see Luke Daniels go.

While listening to the first two anthologies, I did not realize that it was he who really brought the stories to life. So far, Felicia Day and the man who voiced Fortunato are the best; but that is not saying the best that could be said about them. Felicia does well, but hey mild lisp works against her in the narrating business.And, frankly, I have to agree with an earlier reviewer, Bagabond strikes me as a rather extraneous character. Though, I do not agree with him nearly as vehemently.
