Senescence is an Option: The Quest for Immortality
Since the earliest beginnings of civilization, the rich and powerful have sought the Holy Grail—the secret to immortality. The quest continues today on both the fringes and in the mainstream (think PayPal founder Peter Theil). Join author Barbara Barnett on a journey through the sometimes-bloody history of this immortal quest.
Barbara Barnett is author of the Bram Stoker Award-nominated novel The Apothecary’s Curse (Pyr Books). Her new novel, The Alchemy of Glass (Pyr), is due out late summer 2019.
