Or, to go even further out on a transhuman\automorphic limb, the
book _Art Objects_ by Jeanette Winterson is a tremendously good collection
of essays dealing with the immortal necessity of creativity in the present
and the future. Also, check out _Brave New World Revisited_ by Aldous
Huxley. Although it is an older book (1957), it contains many plausible
extropic solutions to overpopulation and other such social maladies.
