Synopsis from the CP website

When Dr. Jim Parsons awakens after a car accident, he finds himself in a future populated almost entirely by the young. But for the young to keep running the world, death is fetishized, and those who survive to old age are put down. In such a world, Parsons Ñ with his innate desire to save livesÑis a criminal and an outcast.
      For one revolutionary group, however, he may be just the savior they need to heal and revive their cryogenically frozen leader. When he and the group journey to sixteenth-century California, what they find causes them to question what they know about history and the underpinnings of their society.
      With the jarring immediacy of a car crash, Philip K. Dick throws both the reader and the protagonist of dr. futurity into a bizarre future where healing is a crime and youth rules.
      This new edition of Dr. Futurity has a new introduction by Michael Swanwick, new cover artwork by Joe Wilson, and archival artwork by Chris Moore. The edition is limited to 300 signed and numbered copies. Each book is signed by Michael Swanwick, Joe Wilson, and Chris Moore, with an Estate-approved facsimile signature by Philip K. Dick.
       The specifications for this set are: one book, printed in four colors and one color throughout, bound in European cloth, with ribbon marker, patterened endpapers, stunning dustjacket, and ribbon marker.
