    FREE PDF Â BOOK Last Call Last CallFormer professional poker player Scott Crane's life is falling apart having just lost his wife and been on a beer binge when aspects of his past have come back to haunt him Specifically a bizarre card game twenty years before where he may have lost his soul But what do his foster father and foster sister have to do with it And why is everyone trying to kill himLast Call is really hard to summarize accurately You could say it was about a man who lost his soul and tried to win it back Or you could say it was a modern retelling of the Fisher King legend Or a story about Bugsy Siegel and the rise of Las Vegas Or you could say it was all of those things and The story started slow establishing what had happened before and giving the reader hints at the magic Powers was working That portion reminded me of Neil Gaiman's American Gods and Ro

    FREE PDF Â BOOK Last Call Last CallI happen to think this Locus and World Fantasy Award winner of '93 deserves all the accolades it got Indeed I think it's as readable now as it was back thenEspecially now that we've all renewed our tastes for myths in our reading habits this one dives deep into the Fisher King while leading us across the US always eventually winding up in the dark heart of the country Las Vegas This is a great mashup of an ex professional poker player and a chaos magic Tarot tribute switching between a lifetime of mystery reveals archetype treatments and a series of choices that lead up to one hell of a t

    FREE PDF Â BOOK Last Call Last CallSummary Reminded me of a mash up of early Stephen King and Neil Gaiman I loved itI'm running miles and miles behind on my reviewing but I have to say something about this book so let's bullet point I thought it was a fantasythriller based on poker I hadn't read any Tim Powers before and I found it hard to get psyched about the concept It won me over pretty damn uick It's excellent really truly I was a fool for not reading it soonerLet me get o

    FREE PDF Â BOOK Last Call Last CallNow that I'm no longer professionally obligated to review 200 contemporary novels each year as part of running the CCLaP website I've been using 2018 to indulgently make my way through the complete works of a number of authors who I've always wanted to be completists of; and one of those authors is Tim Powers who has gotten famous over the years for blending multiple types of genres into New Weird tales about secret histories that are taking place around us in plain sight I started with his 1983 Philip K Dick Award winning The Anubis Gates where he combines time travel the birth of Romanticism in the early 1800s and th

    FREE PDF Â BOOK Last Call Last CallI wanted to like this book much than I did—there was much in it that appealed to me but as with Powers’ The Anubis Gates I found myself somewhat underwhelmed Much of this reaction will be due to my lack of familiarity with both tarot and especially poker I fooled around with tarot cards in my late 20s but never really committed myself to learning the art And I think the kids at the back of the school bus tried to teach me poker during my high school years but that was many decades ago and my memories are hazy at bestThere is a lot going on in this book and it speaks to Tim Powers’ skill as a writer that he managed to successfully

    FREE PDF Â BOOK Last Call Last CallI was avoiding this book and then I decided to read it during my busiest weeks of the term which in retrospect was a mistake since it took me two weeks to read In Ben's reading world that is an eternityThis book comes to me courtesy of an ARC of the Subterranean Express edition which I received when they shipped me The God Engines I was pleasantly surprised and I shelved this book to read it when I could get to it Every time I took it off the shelf and glanced at the back cover however I ended up giving it a passLast Call is set in Las Vegas and deals with Tarot Grail symbolism ritualistic magic and manipulation of statistics None of this stuff really interests me I lack the ability to get excited about the myths and legends that have arisen out of the culture of mid twentieth century America So I starte

    FREE PDF Â BOOK Last Call Last CallLike this one nearly as much as Powers's On Stranger Tides and than Neil Gaiman's American Gods similar subject matterPowers does a lot of research Obsessively immerses himself in whatever is available on a time andor place that interests him and then goes looking for the gaps in the facts He runs screaming from Occam's razor and fills the void with the most complicated and far fetched possibilities I love
