Book Review: The Unincorporated Man

300 years in the future everyone’s incorporated. Not just a futuristic take on corporations ala David Louis Edelmen’s Multireal but full owning percentages of people.

Into this steps a man from the dawn of the 21st century, having preserved himself cryogenically in a last crapshoot at cheating death.

Quite a combination of themes, drawing from our current trials and memes combining them with a Rip Van Winkle from our time (in both plot and mechanic) to lend the reader eyes with which to look out at the future.

What we end up with is a solid first novel in a presumed series. It’s got some quirks in how people interact socially, but that’s par for course with science fiction. It’s easily overlooked in light of the excellent writing and storytelling presented. Go read it.
