Book of the Week: The Drawing of the Dark.

This pick was inspired by various beer-related comments here: The Drawing of the Dark is a Secret Magical History (involving the Siege of Vienna, Western chivalric mythology, and beer) which first demonstrated that Tim Powers is really, really good at creating esoteric and mystical explanations for historical events that make perfect sense at the time; disbelief is not so much suspended in one of Powers’ works as it is chained to the floor to keep it from smashing through the ceiling and out of one’s life completely.


Basically, it’s just that it’s never a bad idea to go read a Tim Powers novel.

And so, good-bye to Interior Desecrations: Hideous Homes from the Horrible ’70s.
