    Methuselah's Children

    By the 22nd century, a clandestine research organization, known as the Howard Families, has prolonged the lifespans of its benefactories to more than twice the normal average of 75 years. As it becomes increasingly difficult to conceal the longevity of its members' lives, a decision is made to reveal the true ages of a select few, with disasterous results. To escape persecution and probation from the Earth's angry, jealous population, the members of the Howard Families are forced to leave the Solar System..... An excellent reflection on the human race's potential for mass-hysteria driven by its most basic pedjudices, it contains some amazingly predictive parallels to human mass psychoses, some of which being not evidenced until many years after the time of its writing.
