A lo marciano = The Martian way by Isaac Asimov ( Book )

"Desde la entrada al pequeño corredor que unía las dos cabinas en la proa de la astronave, Mario Esteban Rioz miraba con gesto irritado cómo Ted Long ajustaba con dificultad los mandos del video. Long probó ligeramente hacia la derecha y luego hacia la izquierda: la imagen era defectuosa."
Pedro Almodóvar by Marvin D'Lugo ( Book )
3 editions published in 1989 in Spanish and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Pedro Almodóvar, Marvin D'Lugo offers a concise, informed, and insightful commentary on the man who has become a preeminent force in modern cinema and by far the best known Spanish filmmaker among English-speaking audiences. D'Lugo follows Almodóvar's career chronologically as he moves from amateur to international celebrity, analyzing the films' increasing complexity in terms of the director's central themes within the context of Spanish film tradition. D'Lugo considers wide ranging critical sources and develops recognized Almodóvar themes in exciting new ways, including his use of melodrama and Hollywood genre film, his self invention as a filmmaker, and his on-screen sexual politics. D'Lugo also discusses what he calls "geocultural positioning": Almodóvar's paradoxical ability to use his marginal positions (in terms of his class, geographical origin, and identity) to develop an expressive language that is emotionally recognizable by audiences worldwide. Including two interviews with the director and original interpretations of his most recent films, Pedro Almodóvar will reward new film students and specialists alike."--Book cover
Bóvedas de acero by Isaac Asimov ( Book )
12 editions published between 1979 and 1990 in Spanish and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A millennium into the future two advancements have altered the course of human history: the colonization of the galaxy and the creation of the positronic brain. Isaac Asimov's Robot novels chronicle the unlikely partnership between a New York City detective and a humanoid robot who must learn to work together. Like most people left behind on an over-populated Earth, New York City police detective Elijah Baley had little love for either the arrogant Spacers or their robotic companions. But when a prominent Spacer is murdered under mysterious circumstances, Baley is ordered to the Outer Worlds to help track down the killer. The relationship between Life and his Spacer superiors, who distrusted all Earthmen, was strained from the start. Then he learned that they had assigned him a partner: R. Daneel Olivaw. Worst of all was that the "R" stood for robot--and his positronic partner was made in the image and likeness of the murder victim
