Reviews

"Powers' first new collection since 2005 assembles five stories and a novella, where he exhibits his extraordinary talent as a fantasist and his uncommon imaginative power." --www.SFSite.com (September 20, 2011) "During a 25-year career that includes several highly praised novels and many awards, Powers has earned a reputation as a reigning master of adult contemporary fantasy... Whether the subject is disillusioned priests or vengeful spirits, Powers is always ready with a surprise around the next narrative corner. A delight for fans and nonfans alike." --Booklist STAR on Strange Itineraries "Most fantasy authors aim at persuading you of the reality of their invented worlds. Mr. Powers makes you doubt the reality of your own... That's what creates a true frisson." -- Wall Street Journal (October 8, 2011) "Powers writes action and adventure that Indiana Jones could only dream of. And, just when it threatens to get out of hand, there's a dash of humor and irony that keeps you reading for the joy of it." --Washington Post "Superb... Here, in potent, distilled form, you will find Powers's trademarked secret histories, heroically damaged (or damagedly heroic) losers, creepy supernatural phenomena, and macabre humor." --Paul Di Filippo, author, Fractal Paisleys , Fuzzy Dice , and Neutrino Drag "Powers knows the ways we get haunted - by ambition, loss, greed, and heartbreak - and you finish reading this handful of beautifully crafted tales wishing he'd tell us more." -- Locus (August 2011) "Terrible choices face the protagonists of six poignant pieces by historical fantasist Powers." -- Publishers Weekly (August 30, 2011) "Tim Powers' first collection of short fiction in over half a decade, The Bible Repairman and Other Stories is a potent six-story collection that plays effortlessly with many of the author's favorite themes." -- The Green Man Review (September 15, 2011)
