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.
