A bumbling health food store owner is brought out of a multi-century cryogenic stasis to fight against a dystopian regime.

Miles Monroe, amateur clarinetist and proprietor of a healthfood store, is inadvertently forced into cryogenic stasis in the early 1970s after a routine surgical procedure goes haywire. Waking up two hundred years later to a dystopian future landscape dominated by an anti-history totalitarian regime ruling with a minimalist fist, Miles becomes a resistance fighter for revolutionaries operating out of the "Western District", posing as a robot butler in an attempt to undermine the men in charge. Won both a Hugo and a Nebula for Best Dramatic Presentation.
