Powers: Secret Histories

WAS £19.99 £9.99

Product description

Powers: Secret Histories is a unique book charting the career of one of the genre's most revered and gifted authors. As well as a complete, illustrated bibliography of every Tim Powers book published to date, Secret Histories offers an extraordinary insight into the stories behind the stories, collecting together in a single volume Powers ephemera previously seen only in private collections. Here -- in print for the very first time -- you'll find poetry, drawings, research and plotting notes, novel outlines, early drafts, out-takes and an excerpt from the author's unpublished 1974 novel, To Serve in Hell. An essential resource for collectors and fans alike, Powers: Secret Histories contains a treasure trove of exclusive material, including story notes and commentary by the author himself. You'll also find articles and essays from collaborators, friends and renowned Powers aficionados including Dean Koontz, James P. Blaylock, China Mieville, Karen Joy Fowler, John Bierer, John Berlyn and William Ashbless. Lavishly produced in full colour, Powers: Secret Histories is an unprecedented bibliographic tribute celebrating the work of a truly extraordinary writer.
