When We Were Real

A novel by

Philip K Dick Award Best Book (nominee)
Violet is an optimod space-pilot--a beautiful, purple-furred, human-fox hybrid. Darius Murphy has escaped an oppressive religious matriarchy for a new life in the stars. As mercenaries crewing ships for the corporation that rules the galaxy from the Glow-Ice Worlds to Centauri Jet, Darius and Violet share a love that transcends wars, centuries, even death. But in the face of a ruthless power that annihilates inhabited worlds for profit, is love enough? And can even immortals dare to seek happiness in a galaxy without peace, a universe with no freedom?
