The Postmortal

by: Drew Magary

Publisher: Penguin Press (2011)


Staff Pick by comrade: Una

Think it might be nice to stop aging? This book will make you think again. The kind of sci-fi I love best, the near-future kind that seems all too possible. Magary takes ideas of near-immortality beyond the realm of philosophy, and imagines the immediate effects such a discovery would have on everyday life. Fascinating and all too believable!
