Above is the new cover for the third book in the acclaimed Fault Lines Sequence by Tim Powers. Now available as part of Gollancz‘s Fantasy Masterworks series, here’s the synopsis…
A young woman possessed by a ghost has slain the Fisher King of the West, Scott Crane. Now, temporarily freed from that malevolent spirit, she seeks to restore the King to life.
But Crane’s body has been taken to the magically protected home of Pete and Angelica Sullivan, and their adopted son, Koot Hoomie. Kootie is destined to be the next Fisher King, but he is only 13 years old — too young, his mother thinks, to perform the rituals to assume the Kingship.
But not too young, perhaps, to assist in reuniting Scott Crane’s body and spirit, and restoring him to life…
EARTHQUAKE WEATHER is due to be published on November 12th, 2015. The other two novels in the Fault Lines Sequence — LAST CALL and EXPIRATION DATE — are also published by Gollancz as Fantasy Masterworks.

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.
