Want, Not Want

News from PS Publishing today is mainly about their brand new book on Tim Powers:

Secret Histories has been nearly ten years in the making and brings together an astonishing range of Powers ephemera – a huge treat and a remarkable resource for both fans and collectors alike. As well as a complete, illustrated reference of every Tim Powers book published to date, Secret Histories offers an extraordinary insight into the stories behind the stories, collecting together in a single volume Powers material previously seen only in private collections.

It sounds like John Berlyne has done an utterly fabulous job here, and it is a book I’d very much like to own. Except – it is described as an “oversized hardcover”, the cheapest edition is around $70, and that’s a limited print run that is apparently almost sold out already.

It is not quite in the same category as the Lovecraft art book, but in my current circumstances I’m not feeling too flush.

One thought on “Want, Not Want

  1. Thanks for the mention, Cheryl and for your kind words! I should add (in the hope of tempting you further) that the reason it is an oversized book is so that the reproductions of TPs artwork and handwritten manuscript material can all be seen at a size which retains their legibility. Likewise, the pricing reflects the extraordinary and wonderful production PS are doing on this premium book – full colour throughout, offset printing and on quality coated stock. It’s going to be a gorgeous book, one that will certainly offer readers their money’s worth!!!
