Shelves: male-male, sci-fi
The stories are short, so be aware.

Three stories set in an unnamed future where people can go to a company called Ego Corp and just kind of have clones made. If you've got the money, you can bring the dead back to life or whatever.

"Narcissus" is kind of creepy, "Orpheus" is freaky, and "Endymion" gives kind of a hopeful feeling. All three feature male-male relationships.

Three short stories set in a pseudo-dystopian future where Ego Corp makes it possible for the dead to live again, or a facsimile thereof.

These stories introduce the concept of Ego Corp. "Ganymede," a longer novella, explains the creation of the company and the obsession that drove its creator.

Short stories about a company that can bring the dead back to life as clones. "Narcisus" was kind of hot, "Orpheus" was sad, and "endymion" was pretty sad, but happy at the end.
