Paul Di Filippo sold his first story at the tender age of twenty-three. Since then, he's sold over 200 more, afterwards collected, along with his many novels, into nearly fifty books. He lives in Providence, Rhode Island, in the shadow of H. P. Lovecraft, with his partner Deborah Newton, and a cocker spaniel named Moxie. He hopes to explore the worlds of the Quinary in more detail in future novels.
Delightful, with lashings of glorious, quirky detail and a plot which barely stops galloping until the final, glorious resolution. . . . I haven't enjoyed a science fiction story as much in years! --Michael Moorcock, author of Elric of Melnibone Paul Di Filippo's The Summer Thieves is a pure delight, a peak in his epic career. . . .The language is at the level of Pynchon or Nabokov, with frequent sentences taking on the clarity and balance of a koan. The reading flows with an almost boneless, sinuous grace of movement. And our man's erudition yields passages with the pleasing intricacy of encrusted Faberge eggs. . . . Paul knows everything. One might well worship him as a god, were it not that 'the Fifth Postulate of Wetnoodle mandates otherwise.' Read The Summer Thieves. --Rudy Rucker, author of The Ware Tetralogy
