Reviews

"[On Stranger Tides] promises marvels and horrors, and delivers them all. You'll love the characters, you'll stay awake all night reading it, and when you finally do sleep, you'll find this story playing through your dreams."--Orson Scott Card
"Powers [has] considerable gifts."--San Francisco Chronicle
"Tim Powers has long been one of my absolutely favorite writers, those whose new books I snatch up as soon as they appear....The qualities I most admire in him [are] intelligence, narrative sparkle, great dialogue, speculative imagination, and emotional power."--Peter Straub
"One of the most original and innovative writers of fantasy currently working....The quality of Powers's prose never falters....His writing defies characterization and he never repeats himself."--Washington Post
"Powers has forged a style of narrative uniquely his own, one filled with sharply drawn characters, fully imagined settings, elaborate underpinnings that pull all rugs out from under us and let us glimpse terrible, ragged floors beneath."--Los Angeles Times
"Tim Powers is an uncommon literary talent....Exceedingly readable....If heavenly muses were to put Dean Koontz, John Le Carre and Robert Parker into a creative blender, then molded the mix into a brand new writer, the result would be something akin to Tim Powers."--Denver Post
