The incredible has happened. A billionaire businessman from our time, frozen in secret in the early 21st century, is discovered in the far future and resurrected, given health and a vigorous younger body. He awakens into a civilization in which every individual is formed into a legal corporation at birth, and spends many years trying to attain control over their own life by getting a majority of his or her own shares. Life extension has made life very long indeed.
Justin Cord is the only unincorporated man in the world, a true stranger in this strange land. Justin survived because he is tough and smart. He cannot accept only part ownership of himself, even if that places him in conflict with a civilization that extends outside the solar system to the Oort Cloud.
The Unincorporated Man is a provocative social/political/economic novel that people will be arguing about for decades.
Praise for The Unincorporated Man:
""Will appeal to Heinlein's legions of fans with its themes of personal liberty and one man's political struggle with the State. . . . The Unincorporated Man
will tantalize you in with its intriguing premise.”
""Reminiscent of Heinlein--a good, old-fashioned, enormously appealing SF yarn. Bravo!""
--Robert J. Sawyer, Nebula Award-winning author of Rollback
“The Kollin brothers' first novel . . . recalls the emphasis on freedom of the early works of Heinlein and the cutting-edge social commentary of William Gibson and Fritz Lieber.”
