Before the afterlife

At a US cryonics company run by a Seventh Day Adventist, where human heads are frozen for $80,000 and bodies for $150,000, the customers include a young woman from Spain and a lawyer shot dead by one of his clients on the steps of a law library. At the time of Appleyard's visit, only sixty-seven people were in situ, with fewer than 1,000 more signed up to join.
