Interview with Tim Powers

  1. Recently finished reading Tim Powers’ The Anubis Gates. One of the best novels I’ve read in a long time.  Three Days To Never is also really good. Been looking forward to this one since I heard it came out, but I must save my pennies.

       So many great books, but my favorite is ‘Declare’, a supernatural retelling of the story of the British mole Kim Philby. Here, Mother Russia is an actual entity, a djinn in fact, which explains why Stalin had to kill millions. Djinn are VERY hungry!

    I think I’ve read all of Powers’ books except for this new one. Maybe it was just because it was the first I read by to me ‘Last Call’ has always stood head and shoulders above the rest. But I enjoyed them all :)

    I also recommend an earlier Tim Powers book in a slightly similar setting, The Force of Her Regard, which ties in the romantic poets John Keats, Percy Shelley, Mary Shelley, Lord Byron, lamias, quantum mechanics made macroscopic, vampirism, Italian revolutionaries, and quite a bit more besides.  (Never marry a statue.)  I’ll concede it might not be quite as good as Declare or Last Call, but then few books are.
