Description

With advanced biomedicine banned in the United States, rich and powerful Americans traveled to India to extend their lifespans and augment their bodies and minds.

So too did Americans who wanted their fair share. Middle-class, middle-aged Americans like Liam Kleinschmidt and his wife.

But traveling 14,000 miles to a tropical medical resort proved the easy part.

Wonder and dread combine in a near future tale of vast medical opportunities... and shadowy figures out to hoard those opportunities for themselves.

The boat bobbed on the brackish waters of the tidal lagoon. Across the lagoon, partially obscured by palm trees, the resort's main building showed teak timbers and a steep roof tiled in orange-red laterite. Come aboard, come aboard, the dock attendant said in his Indian accent.

Liam Kleinschmidt took his wife Courtney by the elbow. They shuffled forward in line with a dozen other American medical tourists. Like Liam and Courtney, most looked middle-aged, with paunches and wrinkles and a few gray hairs. The men wore polo shirts with golf logos or the names of the small businesses they owned.
