it was amazing

For those of you who have never tried reading Tim Powers you could pick a worse place to start than this story.

It's just a short work, about 21,000 words. And because of that, it's less complex and intricate than his longer books, but I think it gives a good taste of his style.

If you'd rather jump in with both feet and read some of his best stuff, you might want to try Declare or Last Call instead. They're brilliant works that I've been meaning to re-read for some time.

But as I've said, if you're looking for a short taste of his style, this brief novella is a good place to start.

Vanessa J. Hmm, I have never tried Tim Powers, and I was planning to start with The Stress of Her Regard, but since you seem to know his books, I guess I'll try first those two you mentioned.

Heidi Ward The Stress of Her Regard is by no means a bad place to start, either. Read all the Tim Powers!

Mark Jardine I love all his books they never disappoint.

Heidi Ward I just bought this one, because Mr. Rothfuss gives some of the best reading advice ever.

Marina Rupova Ok. I will start with Declare next week.

Garrett Nicolai I've had "The Anubis Gates" on my book pile for a long time. Might be time to push it up the list (or try some of his other stuff).

David I'm actually reading "Declare" right now. Fantastic.
