Expiration Date Summary

Expiration Date by Tim Powers

Twelve-year-old Koot Hoomie Parganas's parents prepared him for a career as a metaphysical holy man - but after they're brutally murdered one night he finds himself a fugitive in the darkest corners of Los Angeles, pursued by denizens of a dark underworld who want what Kootie's parents have been hiding for 40 years - the ghost of Thomas Edison contained in a bust of Dante.

But Kootie has broken the bust and inhaled the ghost, and now has in his head the lively personality of Edison himself - and together Kootie and Edison must learn the harsh rules of the occult world existing behind the glitter of modern Los Angeles, and find a way to save Kootie's life and free Edison's ghost from its earthly Purgatory.

Expiration Date Reviews

EXPIRATION DATE is a minefield of exploding surprises that will have readers convinced that the author has tapped into a more magical reality behind everyday life - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

EXPIRATION DATE is fascinating ... It'll have you turning pages as much for his sheer inventiveness as for the plot ... for the remarkable frisson that sparks from the page, the playfulness of the language - THE MAGAZINE OF FANTASY AND SCIENCE FICTION

EXPIRATION DATE is Tim Powers's darkest book to date, in both its characters and settings, resulting in a complex, fascinating series of potential disasters. But it is also Kootie's story, where terror alternates with sheer nuttiness and even (dare we say it?) hope - LOCUS
