What we are reading now......

The Postmortal  
By Drew Magary

An accidental medical advancement grants humans prolonged life and eternal youth. People can still die of disease, starvation, or violence, but the widespread elongation of life immediately creates an international crisis as never seen before. Russia creates an army of eternally healthy super-soldiers, China seals itself off from the world, and the United States descends into massive class warfare. Extended human life creates all sorts of problems, and leads the economic and social brake down of society.
Insurgent groups rise up against those who can afford the treatment, violent street gangs assault and disfigure the permanently young and terrorist organizations bomb the offices of doctors who perform the procedure. The Postmortal is a frightening and humorous tale of human struggle in a chaotic future.
