An extremely well written short. Anything by Heinlein is worth discussing. You won't see the ending coming,
This edition of the short story is an excellent way to understand the recent excellent film "Predestination" with Ethan Hawke and to reveal more of the nuances of the film. I really enjoyed this easy and inexpensive way to revisit the film.
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.
The sample is 8 pages, contains nothing but the list of the authors other books.
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.
Waits for neon. Was in wolf form.
