From the point of view of its original publication in 1978, this book presents fairly innovative questions about planning of human beings, and what it means to have your lifespan artificially extended. In a world where biological advances have made human beings immortal, various characters try to find meaning in their long lives through a project to create a more "rational" race, by involvement in death cults, and through new social institutions. "The Golden Space is a major intellectual achievement of SF literature. It will not be possible for any honest story of immortality hereafter to ignore it; it is a landmark." --Algis Budrys cc
