This is a near future story, but since I wrote it back in the 1990s, it turns out to be set in the present day. I was going to change the dates for this reprint version, but when I re-read it I realized I had assumed a stock market crash in 2008. Given what actually happened in 2008, I'm a little scared to pick a new date for economic collapse. I'd rather not be right again.
