Out of Print at Publisher. Dust jacket and interior illustrations by J. Potter Priced at original retail price. #235 of 474 limited copies. About the Book: The last will of their suicide aunt requires that Scott and Madeline Madden return to Caveat, the vast old Hollywood Hills house they grew up in-and they soon learn that what they had thought was a shared childhood nightmare twenty years ago is in fact all too real.
Their strange, reclusive cousins, Claimayne and Ariel, are deeply involved in using a form of the Medusa-living two-dimensional psychoactive patterns known as "spiders"-to prolong their own lives and even hijack the lives of others. Scott and Madeline are tumbled into the Medusa's web, and find themselves struggling in a tangle of lives and deaths extending back to the earliest days of Hollywood, fracturing timelines in the past and fleeing from predators in the present, inexorably bound for a showdown with the voracious ghost of their aunt and the entity which is the oldest and most powerful of the spiders. The Subterranean Press edition of.
Is oversized, with a dust jacket and number of illustrations by J. Potter, housed in a custom slipcase. A new Tim Powers novel is always cause for excitement.
His latest is a twisted journey through time travel, possession, old Hollywood, addiction, and familial violence that promises much and, mostly, delivers. By the time the credits roll, the villain has crystallized into a dark portrait of selfishness and contorted love, the heroes have earned grace notes of surprising beauty, and you will never see Salomé quite the same way again.
