–Expiration Date (Tor, 1996), the latest fantasy novel by Lewis-lover Tim Powers, begins with an 11-year-old boy who breaks into his parents’ plaster bust of Dante and inhales the ghost of Thomas Alva Edison. The book is an adult ghost story set in Los Angeles. According to a review in the Los Angeles Times, it “is a fine melange of the fantastic and mundane, its outlandish loops and limbs and odd-shaped parts at last locking down, in purest Tim Powers fashion, into a richly textured, eminently human, whole.”
