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."

    Short Time Travel Story

    This is a story of time travel, so pay close attention to details. It's interesting, and shows Heinlein's view of time travel, but is not very long.

    Thoroughly enjoyable

    And if you are a person intimidated by thousand page tomes, this is right up your alley. It's a short (but VERY enjoyable/memorable) story that will likely have you clamoring for more of Mr. Heinlein's books.

    Masterful writing

    An extremely well written short. Anything by Heinlein is worth discussing. You won't see the ending coming,
