The Moon. Phobos. The Kuiper Belt. A giant globe-circling habitat on Mercury. Joseph Louis Baske roams the Solar System in the same way the great 18th century adventurer, Giacomo Casanova, roamed across Europe--and gets in trouble for the same reason. Romance is the glory of his days. It never lasts, but every episode is an adventure. "I have loved architects, engineers, musicians, politicians, geologists, surgeons, athletes, economists, and women who approached activities like diving and mountaineering with the same passion I have lavished on the central concern of my life," Joe writes. "From all of them I have learned something. The shortest route to someone's affections is to listen." "Analog" reviewer Don Sakers summed up Tom Purdom's first collection "Lovers and Fighters, Starships and Dragons" as "a perfect blend of really cool ideas and believable, sympathetic characters." Purdom's Casanova Quartet applies the same formula to a happy, freewheeling vision of the future awaiting mankind. Reviews: ..".delightful... a surprising amount of depth and sympathy... These deeply human post-human romances exemplify a new and exciting way of combining romance and SF, and they are a pleasure from beginning to end." --"Publishers Weekly" starred review Other reviews of "Lovers and Fighters, Starships and Dragons": "For idea-driven stories built around characters with unusual depth, told in a highly individual voice, look no farther. Purdom is one of a kind." --Peter Hecht, "Asimov's." "Tom Purdom hauled himself back on stage, in a world and field that had changed immeasurably--a field that had essentially, save for old-timers, forgotten him--and proved himself utterly cutting-edge and au courant." --Paul Di Filippo, "Asimov's." ..".for sweep and audacity of imagination and a wealth of new ideas and dazzling conceptualization, Tom Purdom not only holds his own with the New Young Turks of the '90s and the Oughts, he sometimes surpasses them." --Gardner Dozois, "Locus." "At their core, they're idea driven stories that not only entertain but expand your thinking into new territories, which is what the best science fiction always does." --Chris Urie, "Geekadelphia."
