Publication history:


An early example of the now-common organ-transplants-gone-awry genre. In a society controlled by powerful old men (like ours), young, healthy citizens have their organs requisitioned to prolong the lives of seniors. Setting is not too far future, with no noticeable technology aside from widespread transplantation and some artificial organs.
