Books of science fictions I recommend reading this novel by Philip k Dick. It was published in Spanish in Barcelona in 2001 (Edit. Minotauro), and in its back cover, Úrsula K. Le Guin in «NEW REPUBLIC» declares: «The fact that Philip K. Dick’s themes have always been reality and madness, evil and salvation has escaped everyone’s notice. Dick’s themes have always been reality and madness, evil and salvation have escaped all critics. No one has noticed that we have our own «Borges» and that we have had him for thirty years!
A la estación interestelar El mercader de Venus llegan todo tipo de viajeros solitarios, deseosos de intercambiar historias. Algunos vienen de mundos superpoblados, urbanitas, donde la radiación se agarra a los suburbios como una plaga y las corporaciones lo dominan todo.

Descúbrelas todas en este volumen, ya el tercero, dedicado al género ciberpunk en todas sus variantes, desde la clásica de Blade Runner hasta la distopía tecnológica de Matrix, pasando por la hibridación entre géneros de Shadowrun y Blue Planet. Sé bienvenido a nuestra taberna una vez más.
This novel could be the source of inspiration for any science fiction movie, in fact it is the most real confirmation of "Controlcity global state of the arcadians" in this internet space. Fiction and predictable future?...no doubt in our days we can already glimpse the technological beginning of a city dominated by the control of algorithms, and without prejudice to be wrong I wonder how the author could anticipate in the past to our days, to be able to write this obvious and glowing extension of our current technology, and thus to describe a future in a time incalculable in numbers, perhaps 5000 years?.
This classic science fiction masterwork by Isaac Asimov weaves stories about robots, humanity, and the deep questions of existence into a novel of shocking intelligence and heart. “A must-read for science-fiction buffs and literature enjoyers alike.”—The Guardian I, Robot, the first and most widely read book in Asimov’s Robot series, forever changed the world’s perception of artificial intelligence. Here are stories of robots gone mad, of mind-reading robots, and robots with a sense of humor. Of robot politicians and robots who secretly run the world—all told with the dramatic blend of science fact and science fiction that has become Asimov’s trademark. The Three Laws of Robotics: 1) A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. 2) A robot must obey orders given to it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. 3) A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
