9781935738527: Corpus Chrome, Inc.

Decades in the future Corpus Chrome, Inc. develops a robotic body, dubbed a "mannequin," that can revive, sustain and interface with a cryonically-preserved human brain. Like all new technology, it is copyrighted. 

Hidden behind lawyers and a chrome facade, the inscrutable organization resurrects a variety of notable minds, pulling the deceased back from oblivion into a world of animated sculpture, foam rubber cars, dissolving waste and strange terrorism. Nobody knows how Corpus Chrome, Inc. determines which individuals should be given a second life, yet myriad people are affected. Among them are Lisanne Breutschen, the composer who invented sequentialism with her twin sister, and Champ Sappline, a garbage man who is entangled in a war between the third, fourth and fifth floors of a New York City apartment building. 

In the Spring of 2058, Corpus Chrome, Inc. announces that they will revive Derek W.R. Dulande--a serial rapist and murderer who was executed thirty years ago for his crimes. The public is horrified by the decision, and before long, the company's right to control the lone revolving door between life and death will be violently challenged...

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* In the near future—less than 50 years from now—Corpus Chrome, Incorporated, has found a way to bring back the dead, reviving cryogenically frozen brains and putting them into robotic bodies (called, colloquially, mannequins). It’s such a new thing that the general public is still trying to figure out how to feel about it, and the decision to revive (or “re-body,” to use the popular term) a convicted murderer and rapist doesn’t sit well with a lot of people, especially since the decision to bring back the hated criminal was made for purely financial reasons, the dead man’s mother having promised to give a substantial portion of her vast fortune to the company in exchange for reviving her son. While this controversy rages, two ordinary people, a musician and a garbage collector, find their lives unexpectedly altered by Corpus Chrome’s revivification program. As the story builds to a literally explosive conclusion, we fall completely under Zahler’s spell, buying into his near-future world and becoming so involved in his characters’ lives that, when the book ends, we are loathe to leave these people and their world. A bravura literary performance. --David Pitt

Review:

"[We fell] completely under Zahler's spell... A bravura literary performance." --Dave Pitt, Booklist, Starred Review

"CORPUS CHROME, INC describes one of the weirder post-singularity futures. The characters are very much alive. I was entertained throughout." --Larry Niven, Hugo & Nebula award winning author

"Zahler's a fabulous story teller..."-Kurt Russell, star of Escape from New York, Stargate, Tombstone, Dark Blue, and Death Proof
