Jerome Bixby’s The Man from Earth
by James Bixby & Richard Schenkman
Every 10 years or so, John Oldman has to move on. No matter what he’s doing. No matter who he’s with. He has to pack up and leave, or there will be talk of him not aging. John was born 14,000 years ago and not aged a day since he was 35. Packing his belongings to move to a new home, his colleagues, college professors from different disciplines, show up to give him an impromptu farewell party. He decides to tell his friends why he is leaving, turning the event into a mysterious and intense interrogation. Is he really ageless or is this all just a puzzle to test his old colleagues?
