Ace Books is proud to present this classic novel of time travel in a beautiful new trade edition. It took the fantasy world by storm a decade ago, and now fans can savor this Philip K. Dick Award-winner for the first time all over again. Only the dazzling imagination of Tim Powers could have assembled such an insane cast of characters: an ancient Egyptian sorcerer, a modern millionaire, a body-switching werewolf, a hideously deformed clown, a young woman disguised as a boy, a brainwashed Lord Byron, and finally, our hero, Professor Brendan Doyle.

Apart from the fact that it links to the modern world – one of my favourite touches in fantasy, and the first book in this series to do so – who could fail to love a book that sees a brainwashed Byron attempting to foment unrest amongst "the common labourers"?.

Problem is, this is one of the only Tim Powers books that is NOT available in audio format, which I can’t fathom.

I also like Frank Watson’s “Chateau Noir” — steampunk before steampunk was called steampunk.
