    a book I'll adore. I'll have to check it out - thanks, Youffraita.

    Gaiman's pretty sensitive, and in tune with culture. I expect American Gods tapped into a lot of ripe ghosts, floating in the currents of the zeitgeist.

      Last Call is definitely the book for you.

      The Anubis Gates wasn't bad either, although it's been too many years for me to remember much except I really, really enjoyed it. That was the first novel by Tim Powers I ever read.
