LAST CALL by Tim Powers, dj art & interiors by J.K.Potter. Burton, MI; Subterranean Press; 2008. SIGNED/LIMITED hardcover edition.
Twenty years ago Scott Crane abandoned his career as a professional poker player and went into hiding, after a weird high-stakes game played with Tarot cards--but now the cards, and the supernatural powers behind them, have found him again.
Crane's father killed gangster Bugsy Siegel in 1948 to become King of the West, and to keep that power he is now determined to kill his son--and Scott Crane must cross the Mojave Desert to his father's Perilous Chapel in Las Vegas, and take up the cards again for one last poker duel in a deadly game to save his soul.
Part of Powers' Fisher King Trilogy (the other volumes being Expiration Date & Earthquake Weather) & all 3 volumes issued as matching editions. Artist J. K. Potter is illustrating each of the volumes, to give them a uniform look.
Fine in fine dj. Issued in a SIGNED/LIMITED edition of 500 copies.
