It really is Matt Staggs week!

I read in the aforementioned interview that he is working to promote the re-publication of Tim Powers awesomely strange masterpiece The Stress of Her Regard by Tachyon Publications. The book blends Vampires, Poets and Secret Societies in a crazy but seamlessly readable way, and has been out of print for far too long.

I have an old bashed-up ex-library copy with a terrible cover. This one looks considerably better, though I’m not completely sold on the figure with the raised arms…

Tim Powers’ website can be found here.
