The Age of the Pussyfoot
Charles Forrester was out of the deepfreeze. It had taken several centuries to bring him back to life.
But what a life it was!
The 26th Century offered pleasure at the flip of a button - everything from gourmet food to stupendous sex right there for the asking. And for a rich man like Forrester, the possibilities of delight were endless.
Of course, everything else was endless too. But by the time Forrester realized that he had had enough of a good thing - even too much! - he realized that he would somehow have to kill himself if he were ever to survive!
It was the Age of the Pussyfoot.
