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.[/QUOTE]
I read and enjoyed Last Call.
Bugsy Siegel as the Fisher King!
Haven't caught up with the later books, though. I still need to read Declare
P.S. If you like Powers, you should check out Graham Joyce. A bit more literary, verging on mainstream, but great stuff. Requiem, Indigo, The Tooth Fairy
. . . .
(Full disclosure: I acquired Graham's first four novels for Tor, although he's since moved on to other publishers.)
