As a child, there's joy in being able to imagine yourself in fictional worlds.  Powers taps into that feeling with Medusa's Web; the story's complex, time-traveling mythology unfolds in a way that's as engaging as it is exciting.  The story hits the ground running and worms its way into your head in a way that'll have you thinking twice about any symbol or drawing that resembles a spider.—Emmy

 

From Publishers Weekly:

“A new Tim Powers novel is always cause for excitement. His latest is a twisted journey through time travel, possession, old Hollywood, addiction, and familial violence that promises much and, mostly, delivers… By the time the credits roll, the villain has crystallized into a dark portrait of selfishness and contorted love, the heroes have earned grace notes of surprising beauty, and you will never see Salomé quite the same way again.”

 
Dust jacket and interior illustrations by J. K. Potter

The last will of their suicide aunt requires that Scott and Madeline Madden return to Caveat, the vast old Hollywood Hills house they grew up in—and they soon learn that what they had thought was a shared childhood nightmare twenty years ago is in fact all too real.

Their strange, reclusive cousins, Claimayne and Ariel, are deeply involved in using a form of the Medusa—living two-dimensional psychoactive patterns known as “spiders”—to prolong their own lives and even hijack the lives of others…

Scott and Madeline are tumbled into the Medusa's web, and find themselves struggling in a tangle of lives and deaths extending back to the earliest days of Hollywood, fracturing timelines in the past and fleeing from predators in the present, inexorably bound for a showdown with the voracious ghost of their aunt and the entity which is the oldest and most powerful of the spiders.

The Subterranean Press edition of Medusa’s Web will be oversize, with a dust jacket and number of illustrations by J.K. Potter, housed in a custom slipcase.

Limited: 474 signed numbered copies, housed in a custom slipcase
Lettered: 26 signed copies, specially bound, housed in a custom traycase

From Booklist:

“Set over the course of one week, this novel is an atmospheric and complex supernatural thriller, with an old-time Hollywood frame, and it steadily builds to a frenetic climax.”
