Synopsis

Taken from Peter F. Hamilton's short story collection Manhattan in Reverse, The Forever Kitten is a thrilling short story about the sacrifices people will make to achieve eternal youth.

The Forever Kitten explores uses and abuses of genetic manipulation and questions parental responsibility in using such a technology. When a disgraced doctor who was incarcerated for illegal rejuvenation techniques is freed by his venture capitalist sponsor - he presumes that, like so many others, this is a rich man who wants to live forever. But what he discovers is so much more disturbing. . .
