I have ordered and received copies from Amazon.  However, it may be faster
and easier to order from www.iUniverse.com  - ???

The book first came out about in 1986. What I find interesting is how many
things it predicts that eventually do happen in the cryonics movement after
the book was written and are still happening and other good things that
appear that will happen.  I hope it is accurate to the end (which is a new
beginning).   After 1986 it was rewritten with help from Mike Perry and
also Steve Harris and came available from iUniverse and Amazon several
months ago.

When it first came out in 1986 I predicted that it would take more than a
century to become popular.  This is what was printed on the back of the
1986 version:  "Ralph's Journey is bound to evolve into a universal
classic.  Unfortunately and sadly, this will not happen until the
Twenty-Second Century, when most of you will not be around."

In retrospect, logically, this does not make sense for how can the person
who is not going to be around read this when it becomes popular and
everyone is reading it?  Anyhow, this is not on the present version and I
hope everyone is around then and long after that.

There is a website under Ralph's Journey, BIG thanks to John DeRivaz and
also Mike Perry.

Thank you for your interest.  If you get a copy and if you find the
website, I would appreciate any comments you might have.
