Counting Heads by David Marusek

Counting Heads is David Maruseks extraordinary launch as an SF novelist: The year is 2134, and the Information Age has given rise to the Boutique Economy in which mass production and mass consumption are rendered obsolete. Life extension therapies have increased the human lifespan by centuries. Loyal mentars (artificial intelligence) and robots do most of societys work. The Boutique Economy has made redundant ninety-nine percent of the worlds fifteen billion human inhabitants. The world would be a much better place if they all simply went away. Eleanor K. Starke, one of the worlds leading citizens is assassinated, and her daughter, Ellen, is mortally wounded. Only Ellen, the heir to her mothers financial empire, is capable of saving Earth from complete domination plotted by the cynical, selfish, immortal rich, if she, herself, survives. Her cryonically frozen head is in the hands of her familys enemies. A ragtag ensemble of unlikely heroes join forces to rescue Ellens head, all for their own purposes. Counting Heads arrives as a science fiction novel like a bolt of electricity, galvanizing readers with an entirely new vision of the future. Its the debut of the year in SF.
