I've read most of Author Brian Stableford's Emortality I'd like the bio of Mortimer Gray.(Fountains of Youth) Imagine being born in a world with applied nanotechnology, almost living clothing and molecular machinery in you after complicated bio-trenched process that creates a new species evolutionarily different from parents. The parents though long lived to 2 to 300+ years.
They know they are the last mortals raising the first true emortals while they are the last mortals to die. No wonder cryobiology seems a safe though end-of-life-chance-to-return-option.
