Kait Arg, I'm having a very hard time finding this. I'll have to call our used bookshops - the box store (we really only have one company) doesn't have it in, and the library doesn't have it listed. How annoying!

Jon Using and an Edmonton, AB, Canada postal code of T5J 0S1, I found that the University of Alberta has a copy available at their library:

Or you can buy a used one from Amazon for around $3 (US):

I was lucky that the library on the first floor of the building I work in had a copy on the shelf ready for checkout yesterday. :)

message 3: by Kait (new)

Kait Wow, thanks! I wasn't expecting you to tell me where to find one! :o) I think I might have the bookstore bring one in for me, so then I won't have to pay for shipping.

Jason This is why I love Seattle, I found two used copies, and about a dozen new versions at the three bookstores I looked at.

Lori Hey Jason, what bookstores do you frequent? (Apparently I live 4 miles from you!) Just wondering because my favorite used bookstore 2 blocks away just closed. *sob*

Only 3 stars, eh Jon? I love Tim Powers.

Jon Three stars is my initial reaction. I'm going to ruminate on it for a day or two before writing the review and making my final decision on the star rating. I may also have to re-read the last 50 pages or so ... I kept nodding off ... not because I was bored but because I've been so stressed at work.

Lori Haha Jon, that's OK if it stays 3 stars with you! Twas merely an excuse to spread the love for Powers, his imagination blows me away. I hope you try some of his other books.
