Praise for The Bible Repairman and Sleight of Hand




Two books, no waiting!

Tim Powers got a short but sweet review for The Bible Repairman and Other Stories in the Denver Post yesterday. It's a quick one, but worth checking out:

"Powers specializes in hidden histories and all of these stories present a very real exterior and another world inside its cracks."

The Bible Repairman was also given a featured review on SF Site: "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."

Meanwhile, here is a review of Sleight of Hand at Strange Horizons: "With its engaging and wide-ranging selection of fantasies, Sleight of Hand seems the perfect book for an author to publish in the same year that his towering status in the field has finally been formalized with a World Fantasy Award for Lifetime Achievement, proving as it does that this achievement lies not only in the past, but remains very much a thing of the present."

I bought both of these recently. I can't wait to crack into Powers' collection.

I've never read a Peter S. Beagle story, but I've been meaning to. Now I have no excuse.
