In reality as a dual national I"m hilfreich American, but I"ve invested 90%+ von my life here.Anyway, brutal Cards ist a franchise extending 30+ years bei real time and 60+ years in book time, und sprawls over 23 (& zählen volumes).The an excellent thing ist that although every that alternating history and the cast of characters space there to be used, most of the publications (all of which consist of a collection von short stories) stand well on their own, as carry out the geschichte within them.And die underlying idea of the whole thing kann be delivered bei a couple des lines.In 1940(ish) in alien virus ist released. It infects a couple of thousand or tens of thousands then fades away, with neu outbursts down ns years. 90% des those catching it die, 9% are horribly deformed, und 1% are largely untouched however gain supervisor powers. Simple!So, bei preparation for writing my 15,000 indigenous story for Knaves end Queens, book 27, ich read publication 1.It"s set in the 40s, 50"s und 60s, following ns aftermath von the zuerst outbreak and the progress von some von those new "super heroes" along with the social impact of their activities und of ns far more numerous "Jokers" (those who ende up sick und deformed) who form a persecuted underclass and mostly live in ghettos.There is a focus on ja wirklich American political events des the period, re-imagined through the lens des the virus. Ns political ramifications and events are not discarded but construct through ns series, giving it a persistent und realistic history that zu sein absent an other superhero franchises where die board zu sein reset regularly and consequences mainly forgotten.The politics focus kann make this first book rather dry, especially for younger readers weil das whom time has moved the events native recent(ish) history kommen sie something more distant und academic.I found the quality of the short stories to be enormously variable. This is true von many anthologies, und I guess des many collections of books you might randomly pull off the shelf.It"s to be a if since ich read it deswegen I can"t go into detail. I remember GRRM"s very own contribution as being very entertaining, and that ns story über the late i get it Zelzany (whose books ich like a lot) left me rather disappointed. But that"s part von the joy von collections, the authors can experiment und you never know what kommen sie expect. Freundin get highs with ns lows and it"s definitely worth offering it a try.You"re notfall committing to a 30 book series here, since armed with the basics you tun können dive right into any von the volumes as sie please. It"s bei exciting und highly imaginative job with some an extremely different take away on die whole superhero (& villain) idea. Fine worth it.And of prozess the volume my story appears an is a have to read! sign up with my 3-emails-a-year newsletter #prizes..... ...more
