LAST CALL
By Tim Powers

First Edition
571 pages
6X9 inches

Winner of The Most Collectible Book Of The Year Award — 1992

The uncut sheets of one and two dollar bills used in the production of Last Call were bought from the U.S. Treasury Department.

When the mint was notified that the sheets had to be cut and pasted into the book the call was immediately transferred to the F.B.I. and I was told that the bills had to be either left alone or cut into individual usable bills. “However, it sounds like a great idea”, the Federal agent said. “And you will be through with production by the time you receive your cease and desist orders.” I told the agent that yes, it was a great idea but if it was illegal then Charnel House would take no part in it.

I thanked the man then called my hand binder and said, “Cut ‘em!” The edition went out of print in one week and now sells for eight times it’s published price if you can find it, and if you do don’t get caught with it! And whatever you do, don’t mention my name!!
