Dust jacket and interior illustrations by J.K. Potter
Subterranean Press is proud to present Tim Powers’s Fisher King Trilogy in a matching hardcover set. Only one of the three, Last Call, has been released previously as a limited edition, in a gorgeous version published by Charnel House, now priced out of the range of most collectors.
Artist J. K. Potter will be illustrating each of the volumes, to give them a uniform look, and ensure they take up residence on the permanent shelf of any serious collector or Powers fan.
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.
