it was amazing

In the far future, the wealthy and bold -- or the foolhardy -- can planet-hop by means the mysterious Chutes. The Upshot, as they call themselves, leave one body behind and find themselves at their destination in a brand-new body, one chosen randomly, which means they change gender, appearance, genetic heritage as they travel. On the huge orbital station called Rotten Row, however, the rules are different. If you have the cash, you can order up any identity you want.

This novella is more a meditation on identity and art than the more ordinary kinds of SF. Beautifully written, and crafted by a master stylist.
