Summary
In a future where death is embraced, a time-traveling doctor is the only one who can savea wounded resistance leader. When Dr. Jim Parsons wakes up from a car accident, he finds himself in a future populated almost entirely by the young. But to keep the world run by the young, death is fetishized, and those who survive to old age are put down. In such a world, Parsons with his innate desire to save lives is a criminal and outcast. But for one revolutionary group, he may be just the savior they need to heal and revive their cryogenically frozen leader.And when he and the group journey to 1500s California, what they find causes them to question what they know about history and the underpinnings of their society. With the jarring immediacy of a car crash, Philip K. Dick throws both the reader and protagonist of "Dr. Futurity" into a bizarre future where healing is a crime and youth rules."
Summary
Dr. Jim Parsons is hurled into the future and discovers the enormous consequences of the technocrats' seizure of control and their creation of an American paradise free from poverty and disease. Reprint. 10,000 first printing
