Huckleberry "Huck" Linbergh is returning to the city of New Seattle after eight years. He's not quite sure why he's returning, nor really sure why he left in the first place. The intervening years have been drowned in a desperate and yet futile attempt to forget his past. But the past travels with us, and cannot be outrun. Of course, while people seldom change the fundamental core of who they are, the same cannot be said for places. New Seattle now has a zero tolerance policy on danger, and they're going to enforce it, no matter who gets hurt in the process. From official release/information:
Product Description: Tim Scott's Outrageous Fortune marked the debut of one of the most wildly inventive writers to hit the sci-fi scene in years. Now he returns with a hilarious yet poignant novel of love, loss, and itinerant appliances.
