Ok, I’m a BIG Tim Powers fan.

Any day that I get to read a new Tim Powers story is a good day. The Bible Repairman arrived from Subterranean Press late yesterday and will be read tonight. Should tide me over until Three Days to Never is published later this year. The big question is whether we’ll see the Subterranean limited edition before the Wiliam Morrow trade edition.

  1. Hey, Neil: “Any day that I get to read a new Tim Powers story is a good day” is absolutely true, although that happens very rarely to me.

    I’ve only read two of Powers’ works (The Anubis Gates and The Drawing of the Dark) and love them both. In fact, as soon as I finished reading the former, which was my first Powers after his excellent short story “Itinerary,” I immediately proclaimed it as one of my favorite novels of all time (and “Itinerary” occupies a similar place for short fiction).

    By the time Three Days to Never comes out in either edition, I should have already read the only other Powers work I have here on my shelves, which is Declare.

    • Sorry to hear that. It’s easy enough to get his recent books here in the states, but some of the older titles (like Stress of Her Regard) are out of print. Fortunately, Babbage Press seems intent on bringing them back.

      If you get the chance, grab Last Call. It’s one of the better ones.

      • I’m looking forward to Last Call. There’s talk about Harper Collins reissuing it sometime…
