Last Call, by Tim Powers, won the Locus Fantasy Award and the World Fantasy Award in 1993. This book is fascinating: the Fisher King plays poker with tarot cards against the background of T.S. Eliot's The Wasteland. I loved this book and had a hard time putting it down. It's only loosely connected to Expiration Date, so I had no trouble reading this first in the trilogy after I'd finished the second book. I will look for more by Tim Powers.
