A NOVEL OF LOVE AND DEATH, IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER

The words were gentle strokes, drawing her awake.
"Hello. Hello there."
She felt the light on her eyelids, and knew that if she opened her eyes they would sting, and she would have to shade them with her palm and let the light bleed through a crack.
"Feel like talking?" A man's soft voice.
And then her mind cleared enough to wonder: who was this man at her bedside?
She tried to sigh, but no breath came. Her eyes flew open in alarm.

The Minus Eighty . . .

Where millionaires browse the catalogue of icy women, judging on beauty ratings and revival costs.

Where a freezer's gentle hum plays the background symphony for the world's most expensive first dates.

Where death is only the beginning.

Love Minus Eighty is a disquieting vision of our romantic future, as hopeful as it is horrifying, by a Hugo Award-winning author.

io9

A beautiful, emotionally resonant tale . . . a dark, impactful novel
TOR.COM

This is a book with plenty to say about the way we live now and a witty and engaging manner of saying it. With its mixture of assured storytelling, clever ideas and a half-amused, half-tender portrayal of alienation in a fantastical big city milieu, Love Minus Eighty is an excellent example of character-driven, thematically rich SF, and even those usually frosty to the genre should get something out of it.
BRITISH FANTASY SOCIETY

The future world is delicately drawn, the characters all too human, and the science is easy. For both romantic and action story lovers everywhere
