Fountains of Youth is one of my favorite transhumanist books. It is a complex character and sociological exploration of an individual living in a future where aging has been eliminated. The technological and futuristic aspects of the novel are treated with a sophisticated casualness and subtlety that is uncharacteristic of the genre.
What was intersting to me was how the book that the main character wrote affected his life. In the beginning the novel was a work of personal achievement, but then, as it became a success, the charcter's relationship with his work and it's affect on his life became more complex. Perhaps this is a reflection of Stableford's own feelings about success.
