This is a trade paperback edition.

From the back of the book
The streets of New York have erupted in celebration of Wild Card Day -- the annual event held every September 15th to remember the dead and cherish the living. It is a day for fireworks and street fairs and parades, for political rallies and memorial banquets, for drinking and fighting in the alleys. With each passing year, the festivities become larger and more fevered. And this year -- 1986, the fortieth anniversary -- promises to be the biggest and best Wild Card Day ever. The media and tourists have discovered the celebration, and taverns and restaurants expect record-setting business.

But lurking in the background is a twisted genius who cares nothing for fun and festivity. The Astronomer has only one concern: destruction...

7 out of 10

This third installation in the Wild Cards series reads a lot more like a traditional novel than the first two books, which were composed of a number of short stories. To be honest I didn't like the style of this book as much as I did the first two, and it wasn't nearly as engrossing a read as I remember it being the first time I read this book. But still, the reading was still enjoyable and gets a 7 from me.

This is here! Sorry about taking so long to journal it - I recently had foot surgery and haven't been too great about keeping up with BC stuff. *blush* I'm finally able to sit at the computer comfortably again, so I'm back and working on getting caught up with everything!

Thanks again. :)
