January 17, 1992
Genre(s): Science Fiction
Mercenaries from the near future, called "bonejackers," utilize time travel to transport people from the past moments before their accidental deaths. These displaced humans are purchased as mind transplant subjects by the super rich, wherein they may extend their lives in new bodies. Escaped subjects, known as "freejacks," are considered less than human under the dystopic set of laws, and are hunted down vigorously. This cyberpunk vision of a near apocalyptic future follows common conventions of early 90's science-fiction.
