Castaway on Temurlone
Universe of Miracles
David Wesley Hill
It is indeed a Universe of Miracles!
But not for young Pimsol Anderts, idle and jobless on a depressed, waterlogged world, until he signs aboard the interstellar freighter Miraculous Abernathy. Indentured to the aristocratic Wirthy family-and bewitched by beautiful Mirable Wirthy, the latest clone of the long-dead matriarch Imogene Wirthy-Pim's adventure has barely begun when pirates attack, forcing him to flee the ship with Mirable in tow.
Suddenly they are castaways on the primitive planet Temurlone. Separated from his beloved by the Marvelous Flying Bicycle Men and doomed to hard labor in the Temurlone meat mines, Pim knows that nothing can keep him from the woman who is his destiny. He will brave any trial an uncaring God puts before him-escaping the sensuous seductions of the Man Mother, surviving the culinary horrors of the cannibal innkeeper Harmony Repute, courageously facing the threat of eternal toil in the sweatshops of Charming Corners-in the name of love.
With the original and satiric Castaway on Temurlone, author David Wesley Hill has boldly reconfigured the venerable space opera into an action-packed parable for our times.
