The Emortal/Immortal Choice or Conflict.

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.
