Table of Contents, story #13:
The Methuselah Project
To live forever. Is it a gift or a curse? A new designer drug is on the market for parents that allows them to choose how long their child will live. No one can live forever, but a new pill can push the human expiration date out by a hundred and fifty years. Of course their are cheaper options.
The final story in the collection is one of my best and most experimental. This story is told in fragments. It the story of a group of people that can not die, expect on their expiration date. What would you do with a longer than average life? What would you do if you knew the date on which you would die? These are questions that I wanted to tackle. However, the story had something else to say.
Of all my stories, this is one that I keep revisiting. I have about seventy more pages than what make up this short story. Someday, it will become a novel. I don't know how other writers write longer works, but this story wants to be longer. I need to listen. Perhaps, I will get back to work on it soon.
OK, stay tuned for updates.
