Editorial Reviews

Stephen King
"Not only America's premier writer of speculative fiction, but the greatest writer of such fiction in the world … [Heinlein] remains today as a sort of trademark for all that is finest in American imaginative fiction."
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 Wall Street Journal
"One of the grand masters of science fiction."
Dean Koontz
"There is no other writer whose work has exhilarated me as often and to such an extent as Heinlein."
