The editor of GALAXY magazine, Horace Gold, was obsessed with social trends and their extrapolation. The prototypical GALAXY story (often parodied in the magazine itself) would take a present-day, often overlooked trend, fad or demographic fact and posit a society in which they had become dominant. Thus Fred Pohl's THE MIDAS PLAGUE in which obsessive consumerism and its unpleasant acquisitiveness had become negative social values. Thus Damon Knight's BACKWARD TURN BACKWARD in which the lifespan reversed (from grave to cradle) becomes a mockery of 1950's youth obsession. And thus THE BIG TRIP UP YONDER (January 1954) in which the increasing of the lifespan has led to a future America in which the old dominate simply because they will not die and yield their share of the diminishing stock of possessions...a circumstance which leads to the inevitable infantilism of the deprived younger generations. THE BIG TRIP UP YONDER is the second and last of the two stories which Kurt Vonnegut, a struggling mainstream writer and reluctant presence in science fiction, sold to GALAXY magazine. Characteristic of Vonnegut's work, it is framed as comedy but is deathly serious and confronts the issue of overextended mortality with unbending grimness. Vonnegut spent no more time hanging around the genre science fiction markets; it was another 18 years before THE BIG SPACE F--- appeared in AGAIN, DANGEROUS VISIONS and only did so because Vonnegut and that famous original anthology's editor, Harlan Ellison, were old friends.… (mais)

I've only read a couple of Kurt Vonnegut's stories and so far I've loved them both. Can't wait to read more. Excellent sci fi, really weird concepts. ( )

This can be found at audible, in their channels. ( )

Kurt Vonnegut's creativity is great as usual. Imagining the future in a believable way, without any cliche, is quite hard and he does it extremely well.

However, I didn't enjoy it as much as 2BR02B, which I read a long time back. I guess it's because I've already experienced the overpopulation theme, and hence this book didn't affect me so much now.

I'd recommend this book to be read along with 2BR02B. ( )

An Immortality Morality Play, of sorts, satirizing the effects of the life-extending benefits of scientific knowledge on society and the family unit. Kilgore Trout would approve. ( )

The problems of over-population and immortality. The theme is pretty tired but the story was funny enough to keep me reading. ( )

The year was 2158 A.D., and Lou and Emerald Schwartz were whispering on the balcony outside Lou's family's apartment on the seventy-sixth floor of Building 257 in Alden Village, a New York housing development that covered what had once been known as Southern Connecticut.
