Written by Harry Harrison
Published in 1971
This novelette was created from joining together extracts of the novel Make Room, Make Room, the story which was made into the film Soylent Green.
Harrison describes the impetus and creation of the short story in his introduction for it in The Best of Harry Harrison. He recounts how he was asked for an excerpt for reprinting, but that he did not think any simple excerpt stood alone. So he took various scenes from the "roommates" plot strand and combined them into the novelette.
