Tim Powers’ classic sci-fi novel The Anubis Gates is a thrilling adventure story with a fascinating cast of characters. The story revolves around a scholar named Brendan Doyle who is on the hunt to look deeper into the life of poet William Ashbless. When he finds himself a new job, the gig turns out to be like nothing Doyle has ever heard before—he gets paid to travel through time with a group of passengers to see a lecture by Samuel Taylor Coolridge. During his bizarre journey, he meets members of the Knights Templar, ancient Gods, ancient Egyptian sorcerers, werewolves, and other preternatural beings.
