Powers, Tim
THE STRESS OF HER REGARD & SUMMER FLIES (Books 1 & 2 of the typescript, each book SIGNED)
Harper Collins, UK, 1991. The novel is divided into two parts and two typescript segments. Each segment is SIGNED BY TIM POWERS. Both sets are in fine condition. Postage is significantly higher than quoted. ----------------------------------------------------------------Powers was born in Buffalo, New York, but has lived in California since 1959.[4] He studied English Literature at Cal State Fullerton, and earned his B.A. in 1976.[5] It was there that he first met James Blaylock and K. W. Jeter, both of whom remained close friends and occasional collaborators; the trio have half-seriously referred to themselves as "steampunks"[6] in contrast to the prevailing cyberpunk genre of the 1980s. Powers and Blaylock invented the poet William Ashbless while they were at Cal State Fullerton.[7] Another friend Powers first met during this period was noted science fiction writer Philip K. Dick;[8] the character named "David" in Dick's novel VALIS is based on Powers. When Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? was retitled Blade Runner to tie-in with the movie based on the novel, Dick dedicated it to Tim and Serena Powers. Powers' first major novel was The Drawing of the Dark (1979),[4] but the novel that earned him wide praise was The Anubis Gates, which won the Philip K. Dick Award, and has since been published in many other languages. (Wikipedia) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
