In 1977 Frederik Pohl stunned the science-fiction world with the publication of Gateway, one of the most brilliantly entertaining SF novels of all time. Gateway was a best seller and won science fiction´s triple crown: the Hugo, Nebula, and John W. Campbell Memorial awards for best novel. Now, more than 25 years later, Pohl has completed a new novel set in the Gateway universe. The Boy Who Would Live Forever has a sense of wonder and excitement that will satisfy those who loved Gateway and will delight new listeners as well. In Gateway, long after the alien Heechee abandoned their space-station, Gateway (as humans dubbed it) allowed humans to explore new worlds. The Heechee, alarmed by the alien Kugel whose goal was to destroy all organic lifeforms, had already retreated to the galactic core, where they now lived in peace.

But with allies like Gelle-Klara Moynlin (one of the galaxy´s richest women, who isn´t content to just have money, but wants to use her wealth for good) and machine mind Marc Antony (a wonderful chef to thousands of living and stored clients), they are destined to co... 1.
