Here are some additional web resources that may be of interest to readers and fans of Tim Powers:
- Other Tim Powers Sites... This section has grown slowly but steadily as more
people decide that Powers should have a presence on the web. If you know of any others or are
creating one yourself, feel free to contact me and I'll be happy to reference it here.
The "timpowers" Yahoo group: this mailing list / message board is a forum for discussion of Tim Powers and related subjects. Has become the best place on the web for the latest on Powers, and features frequent commentary from the author himself. Loosely moderated by Chris Simmons. Feel free to join!
- I hesitate to send you to The Works of Tim Powers
by John Berlyne... you won't want to come back here! This excellent site has a little bit of everything, especially
complete publication histories and lots of cover art. Not to be missed.
- This site by Dirk Berger is in German, but it's got lots of great artwork even if you don't read the language!
"Die Tore zu Anubis_Reich"
- In the works as of 01/00 is the uniquely named
"The Digging Anubis" site, the first ever combination Powers/Blaylock web page.
- A Powers page at the site of Spanish publisher
Gigamesh. It's in Espaņol, of course. There's also a link to an extensive discussion
of Las Puertas de Anubis, their recent
publication of The Anubis Gates.
- See this Tim Powers Appreciation Page by Donna K. Fitch for a set of
personal photos from a visit with Tim and his wife.
- Take a look at Last Call by Patrick - cool tarot
theme and good sections on historical and literary references.
- A nice thorough fan page by Ellen: The Anubis Gates.
- This one, "ML's Unofficial Tim Powers Web Page"
is by ML, an acquaintance of Powers. She's got some good cover art and also some personal photos.
- The page by Whoop is now accessible on a new server, as
the author was kind enough to inform me. This was my source for the
Locus interview article
which I've since copied onto this site.
- Andy's Page.
- A page from Spain - it's in Catalan, not Spanish,
but there's an interesting picture of the cover of the Spanish edition of Last Call.
- Here's a Powers page by Allan with a nice description of
Power's style and review/synopses of five of the books.
- Book Stores... you can order Powers books from these locations online:
- Amazon Books. Get the still-in-print books here.
- all are listed. You can do the search yourself or
click here for the results page I got when I did the search. All the out-of-print
ones are listed as "Hard To Find". Also you can read or enter reviews here for books
that you've read.
- Bookpages, an Amazon-affiliated online bookstore
- Here's a nice site for a bookstore specializing in sci-fi/fantasy, and horror:
Dangerous Visions in Sherman Oaks, CA.
- Not so "Hard To Find" after all... search for "Powers, Tim" at any of these online locations
and you'll get an extensive list of rarities offered by small used bookstores around the world
(well, mostly North America). I've found multiple copies of every Powers
work except the short stories - some are first editions and signed copies, so they can be a
bit expensive, but you can find bargain books too:
- AddALL does book searches and price comparisons.
Here's their used book search page, where you'll find an extensive list of Powers books.
- Barnes & Noble has the expected short list of
in print books,
with the older ones listed as "Special Handling". However, they now have a fairly large
out of print list as well.
- Does this belong in the "bookstore" category? If you can read Russian (and have a Cyrillic font),
follow this link and let me know. It appears
to be an online bookseller in Russia, and they've been kind enough to link to this site. Good luck
navigating around, but from what I can tell, there are two books available:
This one appears to be The Anubis Gates,
and I guess this one is On Stranger Tides.
- If not Russian, maybe Powers in French is what you're looking for. All his books appear to be available
at Culture Surf - just put his name in the search field.
- Special Note (12/25/99):Reported by Dennis Walker via email:
"A second hand bookshop in Glasgow (Pulp Fiction) has a copy of Fantasy and Science Fiction from December 1982,
i.e. the one with The Way Down The Hill in it."
- Sci-Fi/Fantasy Sites... with references to Tim Powers, of course...
- SF Bookcase is an SF/F book/author site that encourages reader input. So if you're
a Powers fan, go vote for him in their online poll as a recommended author. There
is a Powers-specific page here.
- Event Horizon, edited by Ellen Datlow, a web zine devoted to sci-fi, fantasy and horror.
- An ambitious reference site: SciFan. Good historical info and commentary about classic sci-fi.
- This is an interesting experiment in online polling: The Internet Top 100 SF/Fantasy List.
