You Don't Bury Survivors
A Cautionary Tale About Cryonics, the Search For
Immortality and Being Lost...
Chris Bennett is only in his early twenties but old enough to have
undergone heartbreak and loss. Looking to leave his bleak
experience of England behind, Chris accepts a low-level role at
the Fisher Foundation, a cutting edge Life Extension Facility
located in the southern United States.
‘You Don’t Bury Survivors’ takes the form of his fictional diary as
Chris embarks on this new life working for reclusive billionaire
Sheldon Fisher. In it Chris describes his encounters with the
facility’s cutting edge experimentation, from wonder drugs to
anti-aging hormones to the body-freezing technology of cryonics.
As Chris develops friendships across the corporation’s cult-like atmosphere he
is confronted by untrustworthy colleagues, professional jealousy and the
potential for new romance. But has Chris travelled around the world only to
discover his character inevitably shapes a terrible destiny?

“Extremely evocative… excellent read”

as it is concerned with artificial attempts to prolong life. I have my fingers
crossed for a sequel!”
“Full of knowledge, dry humour and suspense”
“Part techno-thriller which packs a real emotional punch”
“An excellent, thoughtful work, eminently enjoyable to read and
