This mesmerizing novel, reminiscent of Arthur C. Clarke’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, is a sciencefiction survival story that captures the intense pressures—economic, ideological, psychological—inside Communist Cuba. A Legend of the Future by Agustín de Rojas, the father of Cuban Science Fiction, takes place inside a spaceship on a mission to Titan, one of Saturn’s moons, while back on Earth, warring super powers threaten the fate of humanity. When the ship malfunctions on the return journey, the crewmembers must face their innermost fears amidst experiments in psychological and emotional conditioning and aliens that may or may not be real.
The first book translated into English by the patron saint of Cuban science fiction: a canonical, riveting parable in the vein of Arthur C. Clarke’s 2001: A Space Odyssey about the intense pressures of life inside Communist Cuba.
