    The highly anticipated science fiction debut from the founder of io9!

    Earth, 2144. Jack is an anti-patent scientist turned drug pirate, traversing the world in a submarine as a pharmaceutical Robin Hood, fabricating cheap scrips for poor people who can’t otherwise afford them. But her latest drug hack has left a trail of lethal overdoses as people become addicted to their work, doing repetitive tasks until they become unsafe or insane. Underlying it all is one fundamental question: Is freedom possible in a culture where everything, even people, can be owned?
