Transhumanism in the bleak midwinter

Abstract:
At this time of year, when the cool, grey sameness of winter softly wraps us in the bitter knowledge of our own mortality, I find myself squarely in the mood for a little transhumanist science fiction.

Slant flashes forward to the year 2050, when nanotechnology has nearly eradicated violence in the U.S. but half of the population is unemployed, addicted to virtual reality feeds, hopped-up on mood stabilizers, and starting to go inexplicably crazy. One of the main characters has a transhumanist secret.
