Expanded from a 2010 Hugo-winning short story, LOVE MINUS EIGHTY imagines love and loss hundreds of years in the future.

Welcome to dating a hundred years into the future: Technology has extended the lives of the rich and attractive by decades. The wealthy can arrange to be reanimated multiple times. While in cryogenic dating farms, dead women await lonely suitors to resurrect them and take them home . . .

LOVE MINUS EIGHTY follows interconnected lives touched by these dating farms.

There's Rob, who accidentally kills a jogger, then sells everything to visit her, seeking her forgiveness but instead falling in love.

Veronika, a socially-awkward dating coach, finds herself responsible for the happiness of a man whose life she saved against his will.

And Mira, a gay woman accidentally placed in the heterosexual dating center near its inception, desperately seeks a way to reunite with her frozen partner as the centuries pass.

In this daring and big-hearted novel based on a Hugo-winning short story, the lovelorn navigate a world in which technology has reached the outer limits of morality and romance.
