In Last Call, the Locus Fantasy Award and World Fantasy Award winner by Tim Powers, ex-professional gambler Scott Crane hasn't returned to Las Vegas, or held a hand of cards, in ten years. But nightmares about a strange poker game he once attended—a contest he believed he walked away from a big winner—are drawing him back to the magical city.. because the mythic game did not end that night in 1969. And the price of his winnings was his soul.
This edition of Last Call includes a special P.S. section with additional insights from the author, background material, suggestions for further reading, and more.

What People are Saying About This
“A novel of the supernatural and occult that is hard boiled, seamy and suspenseful as the best film noir.”
“Brilliant! Compelling and satisfying! Tim Powers is one of our best writers, and LAST CALL is his best book yet.”
Dazzling . . . a tour de force, a brilliant blend of John le Carre spy fiction with the otherworldly.
Tim Powers is a brilliant writer. Declare’s occult subtext for the deeper Cold War is wonderfully original and brilliantly imagined.
