The Bible Repairman by Tim Powers wins the World Fantasy Award

Congratulations to Tim Powers on his World Fantasy Award for The Bible Repairman. We're also chuffed to see WFAs go to John Coulthart, designer of several of our gorgeous Steampunk titles, and Jeff and Ann VanderMeer for their magnum opus (so far), The Weird.

While you're waiting for your copy to arrive (or re-reading the one you have), here's a quick roundup on what reviewers have said about The Bible Repairman.

"Powers knows the ways we get haunted - by ambition, loss, greed, and heartbreak" -Locus 

"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." -SF Site 

"Superb.... Here, in potent, distilled form, you will find Powers's trademarked secret histories, heroically damaged (or damagedly heroic) losers, creepy supernatural phenomena, and macabre humor." -Barnes & Noble Review
