Read full description of the books Le porte di Anubis:

Il protagonista è Brendan Doyle, un professore che studia letteratura inglese ed è affascinato dal poeta vittoriano William Ashbless (un poeta di pura invenzione). Grazie a un viaggio nel tempo, Doyle si ritrova nella Londra del 1810, dove si imbatte in una congiura di cultori dell’occultismo che vogliono restaurare il potere dell’antico Egitto e che sguinzagliano ogni sorta di creature pericolose. Dopo molte peripezie nei meandri di una Londra dickensiana, popolata di mostri, donne che sembrano uomini, involucri che nascondono entità misteriose, torna nel suo tempo, quindi ripercorre il cammino verso il passato fino ad incarnarsi nel corpo stesso di Ashbless. Il protagonista si trova a passare da un guaio all'altro cercando di tirarsene fuori e di sopravvivere ad una realta' in cui e' un vero e proprio straniero.Il tempo, per Doyle, costituisce un unità in cui egli si muove come su un nastro di Moebius: senza mai staccarsi da esso, lo percorre su diversi livelli. Powers non ha scritto con The Anubis Gates un semplice romanzo di fantascienza, ma un esempio di contaminazione e intreccio tra generi letterari, allo stesso modo dei suoi due amici californiani K.W.Jeter e James P.Blaylock: dallo steampunk al fantasy, dall’horror al romanzo storico.

Read information about the author

Ebook Le porte di Anubis read Online! 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.
