AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'To Paul Clayton, obscure shipping clerk, his forty-fifth birthday was not an occasion for celebration. It meant the achievement of status of Senior Citizen, and with it several dubious privileges - not least of which was the government-issue suicide pill. Those who changed their mind ended up in the brutal penal colony on Mars'. Source: A. Bertram Chandler website.
