Product description

Review

"No one writing today fuses history with fantasy as shrewdly--or as unpredictably--as Tim Powers." --"The Barnes and Noble Review"


"A reigning master of adult contemporary fantasy." --"Booklist"

"The reigning king of adult historical fantasy." --"Kirkus Reviews"

"Tim Powers is a genius." --Algis Budrys, author, "The Death Machine"

"Powers plots like a demon." --"The Village Voice Literary Supplement"

"Through both innovation and preservation, Tachyon Publications has become one of the most respected publishing houses in speculative fiction." --"Hellnotes: Fiction, Movies, and Art Dedicated to the Horror Genre"

"Powers has already proved that he is a master of what he terms 'doing card tricks in the dark, ' referring to the incredible amount of historical, biographical, and practical research that goes into his works." --"Harvard Review"

"Tim Powers is a brilliant writer." --William Gibson, author", ""Neuromancer"

"Good serious fantasy doesn't come much better than The Stress of Her Regard."
--Oxford Times

"Strewn with literary personages and allusions, the book is entertaining on several levels...."
--Publishers Weekly

"Powers's framing of a vast, mysterious conspiracy, with ancient supernatural powers, hidden riddles, and secret societies, rivals anything written by Umberto Eco...."
--Blogcritics Magazine

"Intricately laced plots, theories of magick advanced and practical, and strange-but-true historical incidents."
--Green Man Review

..".well-written and overflowing with imagination...."
--Bookgasm

"Tim Powers is a genius."
--Algis Budrys, author, The Death Machine

"Doing what Powers does best, by interspersing a dozen plot lines and characters with a bucket-load of paranormal and tying them up perfectly, he has conjured a tale that could be taken from the history books and taught as fact, and no one would even bother to challenge it. The unfortunate truth is that it's not real, and that's what it makes it all the more amazing."
--SF Crowsnest

Book Description

The secret history of the Romantic poets: Powers masterfully recasts the tragic lives of the Romantics into a uniquely frightening tale. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
