In Vancouver in 2036, people are tired of the rain. They're willing to give up a lot for guaranteed sunshine, a life with no wasted hours. A life free of crime and disease. A life that ends when you want it to, not when some faceless entity decides it's your time.

Those who don't buy in--the poor, the old, the paranoid--have to watch as their loved ones, their friends, and their jobs leave the city. They have to watch as the latest prestige technology, Self, changes everything--not just the world but humanity itself.

On the bright side, the rents have dropped. And in several unexpected ways, resistance is growing.

Vancouver, 2036. People are tired of the rain and the smog. They're willing to give up a lot for guaranteed sunshine, a life free of crime and disease. A life that ends when they want it to, not when some faceless entity decides it's their time.
Those who don't buy in - the poor, the old, the paranoid - have to watch as their loved ones, their friends and their jobs leave the city. They have to watch as the latest prestige technology, Self, transforms their world.
On the bright side, the rents have dropped. And in several unexpected ways, resistance is growing.
