Past Event

At the age of sixty-three, Benjamin Smith is in the prime of his life when he suffers a massive heart attack that should have killed him. However, Benjamin is a pioneering advocate of the infant science of cryonics and has arranged to have his body frozen. When he resumes life after being frozen for eighty-three years, the world is altered beyond recognition. This book, written by James L. Halperin, coincides with the exhibition The Future Starts Here.
