Wild Cards IX: Jokertown Shuffle
Bloat, the boy governor of the Rox, had dreams as big as his monstrous Joker body. He wanted to make Ellis Island a safe haven for his people, a Joker homeland. To survive, Bloat needed the Jumpers, adolescent outcasts who could steal a man's body in the blink of an eye. He needed their money to feed the Rox. Even more, he needed their terrifying powers to stave off the vengeance of a frightened world.
But the Jumpers grew more viscious and uncontrollable every day, under the leadership of Dr. Tachyon's psychopathic grandson.
The greatest threat the Wild Cards have ever faced continues in this series, edited by George R.R. Martin.
