|Published in Worlds of If, April 1967. Douglas Hooker is a potential paranoid. At 60+ he has behaved himself and kept close to medical treatment all his life, not realizing that his "autodoc" has malfunctioned. When his brain patterns start altering, unnoticeably at first, he concludes that he has done nothing and achieved nothing in his life, thanks to a vast conspiracy against him... so he decides to steal an interstellar ramship.|
