Ways To Survive
(i) Time travel:
HG Wells' The Time Machine;
Poul Anderson's "Flight to Forever."
(ii) Time dilation:
Anderson's Tau Zero.
(iii) Temporal stasis:
Anderson's "Time Heals."
Robert Heinlein's Methuselah's Children;
Anderson's The Boat Of A Million Years;
Anderson's World Without Stars;
John C. Wright's The Golden Age.
(v) Inorganic intelligences:
Philip Jose Farmer's Riverworld series.
(vii) Suspended animation:
Wells' The Sleeper Wakes.
ERB's The Moon Maid;
the Golden Age Hawkman.
As always, a longer list than expected and some unexpected inclusions. Anderson appears six times and Wells twice.
