Puerta al verano - The Door into Summer - Spanish Author:Robert A. Heinlein, F. Hernandez (Translator) "I would not want anyone to think I disliked the year 2000 as compared with 1970. I liked it, & I liked 2001 when it rolled around a couple of weeks after they wakened me. In spite of recurrent spasms of almost unbearable homesickness, I thought that Great Los Angeles at the dawn of the 3rd Millennium was odds-on the most wonderful plac... more »e I'd ever seen. It was fast & clean & very exciting, even if it was too crowded...It was worth sleeping 30 years just to wake up in a time when they had licked the common cold & nobody had a post-nasal drip. That meant more to me than the research colony on Venus."
Written in 1956 by science fiction Grand Master Robert Heinlein, The Door into Summer takes us to a possible future 1970, where brilliant inventor Dan Davis makes a fortune from the domestic robots his company makes. But for all Dan' genius, he is duped out of his share of company holdings by his partner, Miles, & his fiancee, Belle. Seeking to be rid of Dan without resorting to murder, Belle & Miles send him on a trip 30 years into the future via Cold Sleep--but not before Dan has placed his remaining holdings with Ricky, Miles' 11-year-old step-daughter, whose wide-eyed innocence is the only commodity Dan has any faith left in.
When Dan awakens in 2000, he quickly busies himself in tracking down his past, learning to his horror that Miles & Belle have sold his company & disappeared. In his quest for the truth, Dan discovers an even greater scientific breakthrough than Cold Sleep, a secret that will give him what every man longs for--a chance to correct his past by rewriting the future.
