The Bible Repairman

(2006)
And Other Stories
A collection of stories by

 
 
Gathering darkly fantastic short fiction previously available only in limited editions, this collection explores the mysteries of souls--whether they are sacrificed on the pinnacle of Mount Parnassus or lodged in a television cable box. In a Kabbalistic tale of transformation, the executor of an old friend's will is almost duped into housing his soul. In a tale of time travel between 2015 and 1975, a tragedy sparked by an angel falling onto a pizza shop is reenacted--and the event is barely, but fatally, altered. The cornerstone of the collection is a postscript to the harrowing novel of the haunting of the Romantic poets, The Stress of Her Regard. Once Byron and Shelley break free of the succubus that claimed them, their associate, Trelawny, forges an alliance with Greek rebels to reestablish the deadly connection between man and the nephilim. Fans of Powers's renowned secret histories will delight as he deftly weaves an array of fantastical creatures into richly layered narratives of the past.
