Last Call by Tim Powers
"My first read of 2017 straddled the old and new year, which is pretty apt for a tale of the death of an old king and the ascension of a new one.

LAST CALL is a dazzling jewel of a book. Powers pulls out all of his vast array of literary tricks, and..." Read more of this review »

“Seven Ages: first puking and mewling
Then very pissed-off with your schooling
Then fucks, and then fights
Next judging chaps' rights
Then sitting in slippers: then drooling.”
Robert Conquest
Love Songs by Sara Teasdale
Wisdom

When I have ceased to break my wings
Against the faultiness of things,
And learned that compromises wait
Behind each hardly opened gate,
When I can look Life in the eyes,
Grown calm and very coldly wise,
Life will have given me the Truth,
And taken in exchange -- my youth.”
Sara Teasdale

“The house of God doesn't get terribly good reception, I'm afraid.”
Philip Hemplow, Ashes

“Acid rain had done its insidious damage, leaving the brickwork as pockmarked and powdery as a Renaissance syphilitic, but they had been built to last.”
Philip Hemplow, Ashes

“Over a thousand years ago the Christians came, with their Jewish god and their arrogant priests, their masochist saints and boot-licking apostles. They promised and threatened, with a child’s vision of heaven and hell. Seduced us with the promise of a god’s love for mere men. Over centuries, the people, weak and stupid, forgot their old beliefs and knelt before the cross. Old names and old ways were put aside. How much easier to bless yourself, and pray to heaven, than to tremble with fear before the Black God—Czernobog!”
Philip Hemplow, Sarcophagus

In Memoriam A.H.H. Section 5

I sometimes hold it half a sin
To put in words the grief I feel;
For words, like Nature, half reveal
And half conceal the Soul within.

But, for the unquiet heart and brain,
A use in measured language lies;
The sad mechanic exercise,
Like dull narcotics, numbing pain.

In words, like weeds, I'll wrap me o'er,
Like coarsest clothes against the cold:
But that large grief which these enfold
Is given in outline and no more.”
Alfred Tennyson, In Memoriam

Against the faultiness of things,
And learned that compromises wait

When I can look Life in the eyes,

And taken in exchange -- my youth.”
