Novedad: Last Year, de Robert Charles Wilson

Esta semana se ha puesto a la venta Last Year, la nueva novela de Robert Charles Wilson. Ésta es su sinopsis:
Two events made September 1st a memorable day for Jesse Cullum. First, he lost a pair of Oakley sunglasses. Second, he saved the life of President Ulysses S. Grant. 
In the near future of Robert Charles Wilson's Last Year, the technology exists to open doorways into the past--but not our past, not exactly. Each "past" is effectively an alternate world, identical to ours but only up to the date on which we access it. And a given "past" can only be reached once. After a passageway is open, it's the only road to that particular past; once closed, it can't be reopened. 
A passageway has been opened to a version of late 19th-century Ohio. It's been in operation for most of a decade, but it's no secret, on either side of time. A small city has grown up around it to entertain visitors from our time, and many locals earn a good living catering to them. But like all such operations, it has a shelf life; as the "natives" become more sophisticated, their version of the "past" grows less attractive as a destination. 
Jesse Cullum is a native. And he knows the passageway will be closing soon. He's fallen in love with a woman from our time, and he means to follow her back--no matter whose secrets he has to expose in order to do it.

  1. ¿qué fue de este tío? Escribió un puñado de buenos libros pero se diluyó un poco no? Spin era magnífico.

  2. ¿lo veremos traducido? Me parece a mi que en España esta un poco olvidado este autor y mira que me ha dejado buenas lecturas y recuerdos posteriores.

  3. Bueno, Wilson es de esos autores que tradicionalmente venía publicando La Factoría (con excepciones puntuales), así que la cosa queda un poco en terreno de nadie hasta que otra editorial se decida.
