Loved by our collective!

This deeply unsettling work of science fiction, just released in paperback, takes place in a dystopian future of corporate power, intellectual property, and contractual slavery that is probably not all that far away. The story features multiple protagonists -- an anti-patent activist turned pharma pirate, a homophobic bounty hunter tormented by sexual repression, a (maybe?) transgender robot who doesn't know where software ends and self begins -- each relatable but profoundly flawed. This is a novel that will almost certainly have a lasting impact on the genre.
