Wild Cards

Wild Cards  - George R.R. Martin

After hearing several people talk about this series in a positive way,I read the first one.

A space virus is exploded in the air above Manhattan in the 40's and is quickly spread overseas.The virus quickly kills thousands,mutates an unknown number more.And sometimes it's terrible  mutation and a very few got a mutation/powers.

This made it a read better than I was expecting,I'll continue the series.
