Tim Powers is great, but I'm not sure I think of him as urban fantasy. Books like The Anubis Gates and On Stranger Tides are more gonzo historical fantasy . . . .

Here's hoping the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie makes him a household name!
Amen to that.. I was thinking of the Last Call/Expiration Date/Earthquake Weather series, not the historical ones.

Good point. I admit I've fallen behind in my Powers reading. I'm mostly familar with his early historical fantasies like The Stress of Her Regard . . . .
They're set in Las Vegas and California in the 1980s... excellent books, the first two seem standalone until the third one combines their plotlines.
