Above is the cover for the Fantasy Masterwork edition of Tim Powers‘s EXPIRATION DATE. Due to be published by Gollancz on April 9th, 2015, it is the second book in the author’s Fault Lines sequence.

Here is the synopsis…

Twelve-year-old Koot Hoomie Parganas’s parents prepared him for a career as a metaphysical holy man – but after they’re brutally murdered one night he finds himself a fugitive in the darkest corners of Los Angeles, pursued by denizens of a dark underworld who want what Kootie’s parents have been hiding for forty years – the ghost of Thomas Edison contained in a bust of Dante.

But Kootie has broken the bust and inhaled the ghost, and now has in his head the lively personality of Edison himself – and together Kootie and Edison must learn the harsh rules of the occult world existing behind the glitter of modern Los Angeles, and find a way to save Kootie’s life and free Edison’s ghost from its earthly Purgatory.

The first novel in the Fault Lines sequence, LAST CALL, was published as part of the Fantasy Masterwork series in 2013.
