Earthquake Weather Summary

Earthquake Weather by Tim Powers

A young woman possessed by a ghost has slain the Fisher King of the West, Scott Crane. Now, temporarily freed from that malevolent spirit, she seeks to restore the King to life.

But Crane's body has been taken to the magically protected home of Pete and Angelica Sullivan, and their adopted son, Koot Hoomie. Kootie is destined to be the next Fisher King, but he is only 13 years old -- too young, his mother thinks, to perform the rituals to assume the Kingship.

But not too young, perhaps, to assist in reuniting Scott Crane's body and spirit, and restoring him to life . . .

Earthquake Weather Reviews

Influenced by SF master Philip K. Dick, Powers taps into Dick's surrealistic style to great success. - Library Journal

Once again, Powers managed to win me over, with his ability to invoke the full forces of nature, both human and beyond humanity, in this place with its own special versions of the seasons as they change, and they change again. - Locus

Powers creates a mystical, magical otherworld superimposed on our own and takes us on a marvelous, guided tour of his vision. - Science Fiction Chronicle
