Science Fiction in the News Articles
Related to material in The Computer Connection
by Alfred Bester

Remarkable book; the author sees it as a flawed work, but it shines all the way through with his wit and insight. The story centers around a small group of people who become effectively immortal. One of their group begins killing the others (possible with enough trauma); the group pulls together to get the criminal.

His use of 3D projection commercials was particularly prescient - he clearly visualized what you saw in the 2004 movie Minority Report in 1974.
