Tim Powers

Tim Powers has been writing SF novels since the mid '70s. His first two novels, The Skies Discrowned and An Epitaph in Rust, were published by Laser Books. The Drawing of the Dark, a delightfully original Arthurian fantasy, in which beer plays a major role in saving the world, appeared in 1979. He made a major impression on the field with the 1983 publication of The Anubis Gates, a complicated timetravel tale which founded a new school of fantasy: "steampunk." The Anubis Gates as well as his next novel, Dinner at Deviant's Palace, won Philip K. Dick Memorial Awards as the best paperback original of the year. His next book, On Stranger Tides, was an inventive fantasy combining voodoo, pirates, and the Royal Navy. Tim lives with his wife Serena in California.
