Overview

"All You Zombies—" is the basis for PREDESTINATION from Sony Pictures, just released in the US on January 9, 2015, starring Ethan Hawke, directed and written by the Spierig Brothers.

A young man walks into a bar and meets a time-traveling bartender whose origins -- and relation to the young man -- are more convoluted and stranger than the snake-swallowing-his-tail ring on the barkeep's finger.

Robert A. Heinlein's "All You Zombies—" is considered one of the most influential and thought-provoking short stories ever to tackle the mind-bending nature and paradoxes of time travel.

Editorial Reviews

The Wall Street Journal
"One of the grand masters of science fiction."
The Philadelphia Enquirer - The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Heinlein… has the ability to see technologies just around the bend. That, combined with his outstanding skill as a writer and engineer-inventor, produces books that are often years ahead of their time."
The New York Times
"Heinlein wears imagination as though it were his private suit of clothes."
Dean Koontz
"There is no other writer whose work has exhilarated me as often and to such an extent as Heinlein."
Stephen King
"Not only America's premier writer of speculative fiction, but the greatest writer of such fiction in the world."
