A vertical world, where fertility is worshipped and frequent sex with as many partners as possible is not only encouraged, but mandated. Program whatever meal you wish, and with a push of a button it is delivered. Hallucinatory drugs, calming potions, and psychedelic concerts as desired. (Yes, this was written in 1971). The down side? A million people to each 1000 story building. Living areas for families, only about 20x20. Never step outside, never breath fresh air or see the ocean. This book, in seven short stories, deals with the people who see the cracks in the system, but dont see a way out. Read for a book discussion, and pleasantly surprised.
