— Appears in: Restore Point : Scripts for Radio and Film 2012;

'Kicked to death on a sidewalk by thugs, aged Nobel laureate Bruce is frozen for centuries in cryonic biostasis. When his chilled flesh is rebuilt and rejuvenated, he wakes in a placid future ruled by a world-commanding computer system, the Truth Machine. But is this utopia or oppressive horror-heaven or hell?'
