There's a great deal of new nanotech-themed fiction out there that I've been neglecting. I wish I had time to read them all, but I'll do my best to find reviews as I go along. I got out of the habit of covering the cult (or culture) of nanotech for a while. But that has always been an important mission of this blog. The way we dream has a direct impact on our reality.
And if any loyal reader has read a book, watched a film or played a videogame with a nanotech theme and would like to write a review for NanoBot, please drop me a note.
Here's a review from SciFi.com of the first book in what promises to be an exciting series exploring the gap between nano-enabled immortals and those who are still falling toward that out-of-fashion thing called death.
Oh, and if you want to buy the book, click on the picture from my blog and Amazon will toss me a few coins.
The Last Mortal Man
If you have enough money, nano-biology has the cure for what ails you—even death Review by Cynthia Ward, SciFi.com
Trillionaire Lucius Sterling is the founder and owner of Sterling Nanotech. But he didn't invent the nanotechnology that feeds the world and provides Deathlessness to the super-rich.

Lucius Sterling decides who is worthy of immortality, and he allows only a few rich people to become Deathless. The assassins seek to liberate Deathlessness for everyone. More here
