Counting Heads is an expansion of Marusek's 1995 short story "We Were Out of Our Minds with Joy", which serves as the first chapter of Counting Heads (with minor revisions from its original rendition as a short story).
The extended story from We Were Out of Our Minds with Joy, happening in 2092-4, occupies the first part of the novel. The other two parts are set 40 years later, in 2134.
Though the novel is a murder/espionage mystery, the main thrust is the evocation of a world in which the individual is essentially obsolete due to automation.
