Timothy Thomas Powers is an American science fiction and fantasy author Powers has won the World Fantasy Award twice for his critically acclaimed novels Last Call and Declare.Most of Powers s novels are secret histories he uses actual, documented historical events featuring famous people, but shows another view of them in which occult or supernatural factors heavily influence the motivations and actions of the characters.Powers was born in Buffalo, New York, and grew up in California, where his Roman Catholic family moved in 1959.He studied English Literature at Cal State Fullerton, where 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 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.Another friend Powers first met during this period was noted science fiction writer Philip K Dick the character named David in Dick s novel VALIS is based on Powers and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep Blade Runner is dedicated to him.Powers s first major novel was The Drawing of the Dark 1979 , 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.Powers also teaches part time in his role as Writer in Residence for the Orange County High School of the Arts where his friend, Blaylock, is Director of the Creative Writing Department Powers and his wife, Serena, currently live in Muscoy, California He has frequently served as a mentor author as part of the Clarion science fiction fantasy writer s workshop.He also taught part time at the University of Redlands.Excerpted from.

  3. I liked this one a lot better than The Anubis Gates For one thing it has pirates and battles at sea, voodoo monsters and that vegetal Thing from the Florida marshes, animated skeletons and rum bottles, a damzel in distress and a sultry temptress If it sounds like the last episode of the Pirates of the Carribean francise, that s because On Stranger Tides is the source material for the movie Frankly, I prefer the book to the movie, even without Johnny Depp.Among the things I learned from this book [...]

  4. If you are as nerdy about movies as you clearly are about books if you are visiting this here book website, you probably recognize On Stranger Tides as the name of the fourth film in the Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Belabored Franchise Subtitle series This is wholly appropriate After all, you can t read the book these days without thinking of the movie trilogy extended cash grab saga Both are about pirates, natch Both are set in the south seas Both combine seafaring lore and zombies [...]

  5. On Stranger Tides may be the best audiobook I ve listened to so far Bronson Pinchot s narration brought this story to life in a way that my brain never could have if I had read it it print He performed it rather than read it and the result was the most fun I ve ever had listening to a book.For a long time, the rumor mill has been saying that On Stranger Tides is to be the basis for the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie While I was listening to this book, I looked on and found that the next Pir [...]

  6. Ahoy mates No, I didn t look here for Jack Sparrow Nor Johnny Depp This book caught my attention with promise of meeting Baron Samedi And you can t say no to Baron just because you re not into pirate stories So I picked it up and started turning pages and I wasn t disappointed I really liked it, surprisingly, even though I didn t get to meet the Baron, at least not the way I imagined.The pirates were their usual drinking, cursing, fighting and robbing bastards Pretty much all you can expect of t [...]

  7. 4.0 to 4.5 stars This is an excellent book and one that I could easily see myself giving 5 stars to if I had been in the mood for a slightly leisurely pace The writing is superb, the plot is complex and intelligent and the magical elements are really uniquely done and very interesting I especially enjoyed the discussion near the end of the book of WHY magic has disappeared from the European continent These kinds of details always add to the richness of the narrative In brief, the story takes pl [...]

  8. He dudado bastante entre darle o no la 4 estrella y al final no se la doy porque otras historias que les he puesto esa cuarta me gustaron m s De todas formas es un 3.5 5Me ha gustado el punto de partida de la historia, el uso de la magia que se hace durante la trama y sobre todo las escenas de acci n, muy bien narradas y din micas.No me ha convencido que la historia va de m s a menos a partir de mitad de esta, ni tampoco los personajes, bastante planos y que al final me he quedado con la sensaci [...]

  9. With a damsel in distress, pirates and pirate ships, voodoo, magic, ghosts, the Fountain of Youth, swashbuckling sword fights, puppet theater, cannons, prisoners, games of wits, Blackbeard, and zombies with all of these elements, a book like this has got to be fun And it is a bunch of really fun characters, fast moving plot, humorous twists in the story line, all help to make this an enjoyable read.Actually, I did not read this book I listened to the audiobook Bronson Pinchot does an excellent n [...]

  10. I give this book 3.5 star.From a perspective, this is a unique book for me I have never read a pirate fiction, or naval adventure fiction before, or voodoo based magic I admit I am still confused with the ship terms, which means i could not imagine a complete picture when reading about a scene on a ship Regardless of the trivial details of the setting, I could follow the storyline.But from other perspective, this book is so standard with stereotype plot formula The first and second chapter is go [...]

  11. This is one of Tim s older novels, but it s a doozy I love the characters, the action, the whole magic, the use of nautical history I love sailing ships, so this was a special treat The underlying human story is about how John Chandagnac goes from proper, uninvolved and rather shallow gentleman to Jack Shandy, a pirate with the emotional depths of the seas he sails This is a perfect storm of a book in many ways I mean, it s got a virtuous yet flawed hero who cooks , towering evil for him to figh [...]

  12. I seem to have a pattern of getting books I really look forward to, only to be somewhat disappointed in them Perhaps if I had not had such high hopes and expectations I would ve liked it The pacing was a bit slow, and it was definitely not one where I couldn t wait to get back into it I did like Shandy and Davies and Skank I think my favorite part was watching Shandy turn into a pirate and accept his role, and to find that they were, despite their wicked ways, actually good guys Honor amongst t [...]

  13. Me ha asaltado un s mil mientras le a En costas extra as Tim Powers hace algo parecido a Tarantino coge un g nero popular y lo versiona en sus coordenadas y pr cticamente dentro de su universo peculiar Al menos as veo yo las tres obras que he le do de Powers Las puertas de Anubis dickensianismo, para entendernos , Declara novelas de esp as en la guerra fr a y las novelas piratescas de aventuras en este En costas extra as.Lo curioso del caso es que, de alguna manera, la versi n timpowerizada ha s [...]

  14. No me gusta tener expectativas antes de comenzar una lectura, porque normalmente stas quedan muy por debajo de la que al final nos parece Y esta ha sido una de esas veces Se trataba del primer libro que me ha acercado a Tim Powers, autor de Las Puertas de Anubis que tanto me recomendaban Pens que, al tratarse de una historia de piratas y fantas a, era lo m s conveniente para asomarme a la literatura de este autor Pues no lo ha sido Vuelvo a repetir, como en otras ocasiones, que normalmente mis r [...]

  15. This is a novel about piratesMagical Pirates gasp No booty, no hooks for hands, no peg legs, no parrots nor even a single aaarrrggghhh in the entire book Still a decent enough pirate tale even though a chore at times to read while waiting on some action Varied from 2.5 stars for the first half to 3.5 stars later with a 2 star ending.

  16. Pre Read Ok, I m putting aside the dreadful Pirates of the Carribean connection, and try to read this on it s own merits.

  17. On Stranger Tides is by far one of the best historical fantasy books I ve read John Chandagnac is aboard the Vociferous Carmichael, pursuing a hidden agenda, when the ship is taken over by pirates Given the choice between death and joining the crew, John settles in to piracy Christened Jack Shandy by his drunken captain, he is lead on an dangerous expedition deep into the Florida forests to find the blood demanding Fountain of Youth and that s only a third of the book.In the very first pages of [...]

  18. I bumped this up my reading list because I wanted to read it ahead of the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie ruining adapting it, and I m glad I did I really can t see how they are going to do this book justice, and I honestly don t think they ll try they ll likely steal a few easily borrowable elements like the voodoo magic and the quest for the fountain of youth, and ignore the main story, which would be tricky to cram Jack Sparrow into I wish that Pirates of the Caribbean would not have us [...]

  19. Another nutty Powers adventure combining Leiber styled swashbuckling, gothic horror, and quirkiness worthy of a Terry Gilliam film Like Waldrop, Powers can cram a narrative to the brim with eccentric facts and connect the dots into seamless fun Here he throws voodoo, Native American magic, Blackbeard, quantum physics, zombies, the fountain of youth, battling magicians, and Puppet Theater One unbelievable and tidy coincidence at the conclusion is one of the few hitches in the fun adventure If onl [...]

  20. Tim powers does it again This may be my new favorite pirate adventure ever Seafaring lore, oddball characters and a realistic basis for magic that I loved I have yet to read anything by Powers that I have not liked and this story was just about perfect An outstanding novel that I heartily recommend.

  21. Powers stvarno zna ispresti pri u uzbudljivo od po etka do kraja istina, kao to su i drugi rekli, enski lik je mogao biti malo ja i, i ima potencijala, ali i ovako se na la na pravom mjestu u pravo vrijeme.

  22. Powers is well worth reading if you like fantasy.He has excellent narrative quality, a mind devious for plot and structure, and does action and adventure as other writers only dream.But if you are a fantasy writer, Powers is a doubly worth studying.Consider that the man has written shelves of books but they are stand alone in a time when everyone asks for an acronymed series HP, ASOIAF, LOTR, WOT, KkC.Take On Stranger Tides It is not enough for Powers to tell a zombie pirate story He has to make [...]

  23. Really 3 and a half stars A pirate adventure tale interwoven with alot of fantasy elements This book has pirates, voodoo, sea battles, ghosts, magic, and daring rescues It was originally written in 1988 long before the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie but many elements of the story have appeared in those films I took a half star off for the uneven pace of the plot, especially in the first half of the book It does pick up in the second half, leading to an exciting and satisfying ending Overal [...]

  24. Paso de piratas a reos a piratas algo m s convencionales Le Las Puertas de Anubis y me alucin much simo, de tal forma que fue uno de mis libros favoritos de ese a o Qued encantada con el autor en el Celsius y su forma de hablar y expresarse y, a pesar de comprar muchos de sus libros, no ve a el momento de ponerme con otro, hasta En costas extra as Antes de nada deb is saber que me fascinan las historias de piratas, me encantan Esto es, yo part a con la base de que esta historia me iba a gustar y [...]

  25. Update This review probably isn t very helpful if you haven t read the book Rereading this review after forgetting what the book was about, I don t understand much of it Oops.I should start by saying that even though this novel is nearly 26 years old I wouldn t have heard of it had they not based the fourth film in my favourite series, Pirates of the Caribbean, off of it Having said that, I should say that I didn t find too many similarities between the stories so I am reviewing the book, NOT th [...]

  26. This pulpy and wildly implausible, in a retro, Men s Adventure sort of way It has pirates, Blackbeard though they don t call him Blackbeard most of the time , damsels in distress, voodoo and zombies Oh, and a main character who s magically good at everything he does Despite never handling a sword, he s able to teach a swordsman new tricks within minutes of picking one up Despite never firing a gun, he s able to give the pirates lessons on accuracy within an hour Despite never cooking for a crowd [...]

  27. The prologue is gripping, the first chapter drags a bit, but the rest of the story is incredible Powers manages to weave together the history of piracy, the age of sail, new world vodoun, and old world magic into an amazing tale which has served as the basis for both the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and the Monkey Island computer game series indeed, re reading it now as an adult I realize that many elements from the first half of the book were used as a jumping off point for the television [...]

  28. I really did not care much for this book and it worries me though it doesn t surprise me that this is what Disney looks to loosely adapt for Pirates of the Carribean 4 All the outlandish and ridiculous elements of Pirates 2 and 3 are ramped up to 11 in this story The prose is fine the characters are interesting enough but the problem is the supernatural elements It s too supernatural for its own good and looses the suspension of disbelief early on Remove a few supernatural sequences and it s a f [...]

  29. Pirates, voodoo, the caribbean, black magic stop me if you ve heard this story.But OST is much than a cobbled together version of a Disney ride Powers has created a swashbuckling epic, and has enough ideas for any three other novels There s epic sea battles, drunken sailors, some extremely nasty vilains, and a nightmarish trip to the Fountain of Youth that is worth a read all on its own.Powers has a fantastic imagination, and the skill to get it all onto the page I m in awe of his talent.

  30. This is my third pirate book this week, but this one is the first one that is fiction I loved the first half of this book It was all about pirates and the the things that pirates did This pulled me right in So I m not exactly sure what went wrong for the last half shifted to of a fantasy vibe and the spotlight was taken from the pirates I was no longer being tugged along So 3 stars The narrator was fluent in pirate speak and accent That was actually quite entertaining.
