Cyberpunk updated for the 21st century drives this multigenerational science fiction saga, which expands upon a series of stories previously published in Asimov's Science Fiction magazine. Manfred Macx, a visionary e-business and intellectual property entrepreneur taking part in developing technology that allows living beings--lobsters, kittens, and eventually humans--to upload themselves into cyberspace, becomes instrumental, both through his progeny and his ideas, in determining the future of humanity, which may leave biology behind in favor of an entirely virtual existence.
