I came upon David Wesley Hill's work when I read the galleys of an, as yet unpublished, work of historical fiction. I loved it, so as soon as "Castaway on Temurlone" appeared I snatched it up. I was not disappointed. Hill's fertile mind creates truly amazing worlds and populates them with fascinating characters, so brilliantly described that you feel the need to reach out and touch them. I have never been a fan of science fiction but Hill's knack for creating bizarre characters, percolating with human emotions really pulled me in.

It is, of course, an adventure story but it's also a love story and at times a quite humorous one. Pimsol Andert's escape from an inter-galatic transporter on which he is indentured and his pursuit of Mirabel Wirthey, the clone daughter of the ship's female clone commander is the stuff of the plot but it is the individual adventures that Pim and his lady love must survive that are the meat of the book and those adventures are populated by a conglomeration of weird and fascinating characters, starting with a love lorn mollusk the size of a truck and continuing with bizarre bicyclists who copulate with trees, cyborg pirates, feral non humans who bargain like Orchard Street peddlers, the universe's oldest living courtesan and a vicious metallic animal, Mirabel's pet, who befriends Pim and defends him throughout the story.

It's a great cast, a clever story and a fun read.

What a fun inventive read. Pimsol is an innocent from a water world, with out prospects ( bad economy etc.). His best friend is a sentient old Bi-valve (a clam) . His stepfather has found him a birth on an interstellar merchant man as a "rat catcher" unfortunately the term rats loosely defines any form of nasty interstellar pest. His birth on the vessel ( The Miraculous Abernathy ) a decrepit old hulk is itself a quick means to slavery. During one of his "Rat" hunts he stumbles across a Personal Attendant " Aristocracy grade " ( configured as a wrist unit ) It seems his luck has finally changed, unfortunately not all for the good!
This was a fun, inventive read with plenty of differences to set it apart from other SciFi stories. The characters and plot evolves and changes sometimes as expected often in a new interesting direction. Worth taking the time to read.
