I finished reading Declare by Tim Powers a couple of days ago.  It is a meaty novel, long, a slow read for me, but one I could not walk away from.  At first it seems to be simply a novel of intrigue, and this it is, quite well.  But it adds an element of the supernatural, and does it so well that it does not feel like a fantasy novel, or anything of the sort.  It becomes believable.  I found myself thinking, Maybe that could really be what happened.  It could even be considered a Catholic novel.  I recommend it  highly.

Just do it...

Writing is not a performance, but a generosity.
