          Sinopsis
          The liner from Port Lyautey was comfortable and slick, but I was leaning forward in my seat as we came in over Naples. I had been on edge all the way across the Atlantic. Now as the steward came through the compartments to pick up our Blue Plate ration coupons for the trip, I couldn't help feeling annoyed that I hadn't eaten the food they represented. For the Company wanted everyone to get the fullest possible benefit out of his policies - not only the food policies, but Blue Blanket, Blue Bolt and all the others.
          Acerca de Frederik Pohl

          Frederik Pohl (1919-2013) fue un mítico escritor y editor de ciencia ficción estadounidense galardonado con cuatro premios Hugo y tres Nebula, durante sus más de setenta y cinco años de carrera. Con Pórtico, su obra más relevante, consiguió en 1977 hacer historia al llevarse los premios Hugo, Nebula, John W. Campbell y Locus. Con ella inició, además, su aclamada Saga de los Heechee, una auténtica serie de culto integrada por Pórtico, Tras el incierto horizonte, El encuentro y Los anales de los Heechee, todas ellas publicadas en Nova. Además de autor, Pohl fue durante años editor de la revista Galaxy, galardonada tres años consecutivos con el Hugo a la mejor revista del año, y uno de los nombres que más han inspirado a toda una generación de escritores de ciencia ficción.

          Acerca de Lester del Rey

          Lester del Rey (1915-1993) was born Leonard Knapp (but this became known only long after his death). After a spotty, abbreviated education and itinerant existence, he headed to New York where he became almost immediately a significant constituent of Astounding and John Campbell's celebrated Golden Age.Del Rey sold his first story to John Campbell in the first months of Campbell's editorship, and over the next several years he sold him many more, including his female-android story Helen O'Loy (1938), perhaps the first true science fiction romance, and Nerves (1942, novelized in 1956), a brilliant novella of atomic pile disruption, amazingly prescient of Three Mile Island and Chernobyl. Del Rey's apostolic and profoundly controversial short novel For I Am A Jealous People (1956), positing a malevolent Deity, is also very well known.Del Rey worked in the Scott Meredith Fee Department in the late 40s, edited science fiction magazines in the early 50s, published some noted juveniles (The Runaway Robot) in the mid-50s, and eventually became the founding editor of Del Rey Books, a fantasy and science fiction imprint under the aegis of Ballantine.In collaboration with his third wife, Judy-Lynn, del Rey's imprint became the most successful fantasy and science fiction publisher in history. The two of them nurtured fantasy writers like Stephen Donaldson, Anne McCaffrey, and Terry Brooks to bestselling status. In 1991, del Rey was named a Grand Master of the Science Fiction Writers of America. He died only a few months after his retirement from Ballantine.
