If I had a top 10 list of favorite books, Tim Powers' brilliant time travel novel, The Anubis Gates, would be on the list. Hell, it might even be in the top 3. The novel has it all: set in early 19th century London, street urchin gangs, Egyptian gods, Lord Byron, a twisted clown, human experiments, and time travel, all at a breakneck pace. I've read it three times in the last ten years, and each time I uncover new treasures, stunning me all over again. Yet, in the 30 years since it was released, Tim never revisited the incredible world he created. That is until now.
Subterranean Press has announced a new chapter in The Anubis Gates tale, Nobody’s Home: An Anubis Gates Story, set for a fall release. The novella features a central character to the story, Jacky Snapp, who is in a frantic race to banish ghosts who threaten her life.
I own about 5 Subterranean Press titles from various authors, and each book is of the highest quality - thick cloth boards, heavy paper stock, and often, new cover art. It was the way books were made years ago, built to last. For the book collector, it's the pinnacle of all editions, and worth every penny.
