Egan, Greg  
Permutation City
In Permutation City, life is just code: you have been digitized, scanned, and downloaded into a virtual reality program. A Copy of a Copy. Paul Durham keeps making Copies of himself, but his Copies keep changing their minds and shutting themselves down. Maria Deluca is an Autoverse addict, spending every waking minute with the cellular automaton that lives by the mathematical laws of physics. Paul offers to design a seed for Maria that will allow her to indulge in her obsession. There is one catch: she will no longer be able to terminate, bail out, and remove herself. She will never be her flesh-and-blood self again. Is this what she really wants?
