Read full description of the books:
Lorsque le professeur Brendan Doyle accepte de donner une conférence sur le poète anglais Coleridge, il est loin d'imaginer qu'il ne va pas tarder à le rencontrer en personne… en 1810 ! Car après avoir accepté l'offre d'un millionnaire ayant percé les mystères du voyage dans le temps, le voilà plongé dans une aventure rocambolesque, traversant un Londres peuplé de bohémiens, de mendiants douteux et de sorciers terrifiants, tel ce clown macabre qui règne sur le monde souterrain. Et pour couronner le tout, Doyle ne peut revenir à son époque, à moins de déjouer les plans malfaisants de mages égyptiens qui veulent ramener leurs anciens dieux à la vie. Mais osera-t-il prendre le risque de changer le cours de l'Histoire ?

Read information about the authorTimothy 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.
