Hello all. :)

My Sister in-law is looking for a SF story. Here is part of her email.

"Hi Andrew - do you remember a SF story about a man being frozen to come out in the future and find two classes of people -a ruling and a working, genetically modified to their optimum. He was then refrozen by being tricked and came to the next time to have DNA taken and put back in the freezer again? It goes on..

I am sure I have read a story where a man was thawed, shown some wonders of the new world then shoved back in the freezer. I know I have read the story. I just don't remember who wrote it or what it was called. I must have read it twenty years ago."

Can anyone help us find out the name of the story and the author? Its driving her crazy, please help.

Andrew

Hi duk, here is one story that may be the one (or probably not):
Age of the Pussyfoot (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Age_of_the_Pussyfoot)

Sounds a little different but there was a sort of similar story in Before the Golden Age collected by asimov. As I remember the main char was getting woke up every 5000 years to see how things had changed.
