Set in our far future, but in the distant past of Asimov's Foundation series, Earth's crust is mostly radioactive. Reviled by the rest of the Galaxy, considered nearly subhuman, only a scant portion of Earth is fertile -- to limit population every Earthman is euthanized at age 60. Joseph Schwartz steps through a time warp and is transported from 1949 Chicago to this future Earth. He is 62 and thus automatically a fugitive from the Sixty. Given an experimental mind treatment, Schwartz develops the power to read other people's minds -- and manipulate them. As a result, he discovers a plot by fanatical Earthmen to release a deadly virus that will destroy civilization throughout the Galaxy, except for Earth. The problems is, no one will believe him . . .; 6" - 7" Tall
