In the future, love is complicated and death is not necessarily the end. Love Minus Eighty follows several interconnected people in a disquieting vision of romantic life in the century to come.

There’s Rob, who accidentally kills a jogger, then sacrifices all to visit her in a cryogenic dating facility, seeking forgiveness but instead falling in love.

Veronika, a shy dating coach, finds herself coaching the very woman who is stealing the man she loves.

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

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

Quotes & Awards

  • “How do we keep on connecting in our ever-growing maze of social technologies? How can love succeed in the techno-surround we’ve trapped ourselves in? These are the questions Will McIntosh explores in this tightly plotted tangle of love stories. The stirring result casts a clear and knowing eye on our current society, from the best viewpoint of all: the future.”

    Kim Stanley Robinson, New York Times bestselling author of 2312

  • “The dystopic view of the future is both frightening and plausible, while the characters keep the story grounded in the details of human existence.”

    Library Journal

  • “An emotionally and sociologically genuine-seeming vision of the twenty-second century. Intriguing, quirky, perversely charming, and definitely affecting.”

    Kirkus Reviews
