Attic > Trouble With Lichen

by John Wyndham

Excellent condition copy of the Ballantine Books paperback. Appears to have not been read.

All living organisms grow old and die.

But suppose you could arrest the process, slow it down, so that the normal life-span was increased to 300 years? Suppose, too, that this means 300 years of vital, active life--without the infirmities of age?

Suppose that you knew how to bring this about...What would such a secret be worth? How could you protect it? How would you decide who deserved your knowledge? For you hold in your hands the gift of life itself...and you can only give it to a few.
