Outnumbering the Dead
by Frederik Pohl

 

What do you do when you're a mortal in a world of immortals? The genetic treatments that allow most everyone to live forever have failed on Rafiel, an actor, so he faces a maximum life span of only a century or so. Far from making him an outcast, Rafiel's freakish mortality has turned him into a superstar. The immortal legions are fascinated with death, and Rafiel's signs of encroaching age have only increased his entertainment appeal. For 90 years he has enjoyed fame, wealth and the pleasures of affluence--but after his latest rejuvenation treatment, he begins to feel tired. His acting suffers; his fatigue does not go unnoticed by dramaturge Mosay and fellow actor/dancer Docilia; and his long-lost immortal love, Alegretta. Rafiel comes to resent his immortal acquaintances as he realizes how short a time he has left to live, but with Alegretta's help he may find solace.
