Sinopsis:

Spanning 50 years and three continents, from pre-war Suffolk to the Far East in the 1940s to Oxford and America in the present, this is the story of one man's re-examination of the meaning of his life, as juxtaposed with the lives of those around him.

Biografía del autor:

Brian W. Aldiss was born in Norfolk, England, in 1925. Over a long and distinguished writing career, he has published award-winning science fiction (two Hugo Awards, a Nebula Award, and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award); bestselling popular fiction, including the three-volume Horatio Stubbs saga and the four-volume the Squire Quartet; experimental fiction such as Report on Probability A and Barefoot in the Head; and many other iconic and pioneering works, including the Helliconia Trilogy. He has edited many successful anthologies and has published groundbreaking nonfiction, including a magisterial history of science fiction (Billion Year Spree, later revised and expanded as Trillion Year Spree). Among his many short stories, perhaps the most famous is ?Super-Toys Last All Summer Long,? which was adapted for film by Stanley Kubrick and produced and directed after Kubrick?s death by Steven Spielberg as A.I. Artificial Intelligence
