Works in the series

Last call

Last Call (1992) was republished in New York by Harper Collins in 1996 with ISBN 038072846X.

Like many of Powers's novels, Last Call features a detailed magic system, here based on the Tarot, and draws on mythical or historical events and characters, in this case Bugsy Siegel and the development of Las Vegas casinos as well as the legend of the Fisher King. Powers makes use of T.S. Eliot's poem, The Waste Land throughout, which also features the Fisher King legend.

Expiration Date

Expiration Date (1995), is vaguely related to Last Call. In it, a boy possessed by the spirit of Thomas Edison is hunted through Los Angeles by people wanting to consume the ghost he carries.

Earthquake Weather

Earthquake Weather (1997), acts as a sequel to the first two books. It involves the characters of both prior novels, two fugitives from a psychiatric hospital, the magical nature of multiple personality disorder, and the secret history of wine production in California.
