I loved his previous two books -- Last Call and Expiration Date -- but found Earthquake Weather, where the ghost gobbling and Fisher King storylines have been merged, heavy going at times. Set in the American West, this book still manages some classic Powers moments and should still be read if you're a fan.
Ensure you read Last Call and Expiration Date first - both are highly recommended. If you don't really enjoy them, you'll probably want to give this one a skip.

If you haven't read the first 2 novels in the series, don't even begin to attempt this one.
"Last Call" and "Expiration Date" were all time classic novels, but this sequel was too complicated (even by Powers' standards) and slow moving for my liking.
However, the story does have its moments, and wading through the book will have some rewards for fans of his previous novels.

I picked this up, as a hardcover, thinking, "Hey, I liked Powers, I'll try him again." I didn't realize at the time that it was a sequel. I didn't know, until just recently, that this was the *3rd* book in the loose trilogy that started with "Last Call," which I loved, followed by "Expiration Date." Even having the background of having read "Last Call," I *still* found this book very hard to get into, and hard to follow, at the outset. It wasn't until well into it that things started making more sense. It was worth the wait, sure, but I did get frustrated at the beginning.
On the whole, this focused less on Tarot (part of my initial interest in "Last Call"), and the Las Vegas mythos, having basically diverged into the mystical operations of the need for a new Fisher King. We see many of the same characters from "Last Call," but I'm not sure I like how they've 'grown up,' as this is set about 20 years later, as the cycle continues. I really need to read the 2nd book, I guess, to tie the two together, perhaps that's why I wasn't as thrilled by this book. My advice: READ THEM IN ORDER! Without the story background from the prior tales, I'm not sure how much fun/sense this would make for the first-time reader.
I *did* enjoy the scenery in this tale, as I have with other of his works. From the California vineyards to the Winchester Mystery House, I had a good time thinking about the magic and mystery presented as plausible, and of how an unseen ghost world might continue to be all around us.

Let me preface this by saying that I generally avoid reading fantasy. I've never read Lord Of The Rings and I bet I never will. But some fantasy will entertain my skeptical, scientific, hard-to-shut-off-the-BS-filters mind. Tim Powers' Fisher King trilogy is one such set of fantasy novels. First, there's Last Call, which introduces Scott Crane and future-telling poker hands. Second, there's Expiration Date, where the ghost of Thomas Edison leads Koot Hoomie Parganas through a hellish version of Los Angeles. The final book in this [as described by the author] loose trilogy is Earthquake Weather. What a wild ride! All of the important characters are back from the first two novels [which is why you should read those first - each of the first two can stand alone, but this one reads better if you know the backstory of the first two]. This novel introduces three (if the Janis character only constitutes one character) important new characters: Janis Plumtree, a person with multiple personalities and the murderer of Scott Crane, Fisher King of the American West; Dr. Armentrout, a psychiatrist in desperate need of healing himself and a frequent companion to Long John Beach [Sherman Oaks from Expiration Date]; and Sid 'Scant' Cochran, a recent widower with the mark of Dionysius on his hand. From various locations in southern California, the characters, both old and new, converge on San Francisco and the possible resurrection of Scott Crane. Be ready to hit the reference books; this novel requires knowledge about a wide range of things - all the way from Androcles to Zinfandel. Yes, the story can get confusing, even when you've read the first two novels. If I could give fractional ratings, this novel would rate more than 4 stars, but less than 5 stars. Even though they are not easy reads, Earthquake Weather and the preceding two novels are well worth the effort.

There ought to be a law against publishing a book and not telling you that it is a sequel. This story cannot possibly be read on its own...Don't try. I am on page 100 and almost nothing makes sense. Even though I bought this for a bargain rate, I still feel cheated.

Earthquake Weather is the final book in Powers Fisher King trilogy, which begins with Last Call and continues in Expiration Date. Earthquake Weather is a very satisfying and totally gripping conclusion to the story, with a wide scope, ranging with Powers' usual eclecticism, from ghosts to winemaking to electroshock therapy. His fully believable characters include a 14-year old boy destined to be the next Fisher King and a woman with multiple personalities. He intertwines a complex plot, supernatural events, and historical background in a thoroughly satisfying structure, keeping the reader in suspense and caring about the characters throughout the novel.
