A career of nearly 60 years.
A hiatus of almost 20 years.
A return of which Paul Di Filippo said “Tom Purdom hauled himself back on stage, in a world and field that had changed immeasurably—a field that had essentially, save for old-timers, forgotten him—and proved himself utterly cutting-edge and au courant.”
Gripping stories of transhumanism, history, war, love, and music.
An output small enough to look at closely.
That’s why there’s a Tom Purdom Project.
