From the Hugo and Nebula award-winning grandmaster of science fiction
More even than space travel, the Stileman Process had altered twenty-first century life. The most complex of medical miracles, it ensured that every ten years or so, the ailing aging body could be restored to youthful vigour and health.
There was a catch of course. The cost. Every ten years or so you have to come up with 1,000,000 minimum or die.
For Dallas Barr, one of the oldest men on earth, it was that time again. It was while he was casting around for that vital next million that he came across Maria, a woman from - literally - a previous life. And made two major discoveries.
Not all Stileman 'immortals' were born - or created - the same. And someone is trying to kill them. All of them.
Joe Haldeman was born in Oklahoma in 1943 and studied physics and astronomy before serving as a combat engineer in Vietnam, where he was severely wounded and won a Purple Heart. The Forever War was his first SF novel and it won both the Hugo and Nebula awards, a feat which The Forever Peace repeated. He is also the author of, among others, Mindbridge, All My Sins Remembered, Worlds, Worlds Apart and Worlds Enough and Time.
