By the year 2032, advances in medical technology had made organ transplantation practically foolproof.

No longer did patients take anti-rejection drugs for a lifetime, waiting for their new organs to fail. One shot was all it took. Everything but the brain could be transplanted; lifespans of 135 years became common.

Only problem was, not enough raw material. Cloning might’ve helped, but the religious right killed that possibility. Then came the Anticrime Omnibus Bill of 2037.

All of which explains why Stewart, who had just received his third parking ticket, was headed for the organ banks.

Fucking parking meters, he thought.
