Editorial Reviews

Stephen King
"Not only America's premier writer of speculative fiction, but the greatest writer of such fiction in the world."
Dean Koontz
"There is no other writer whose work has exhilarated me as often and to such an extent as Heinlein."
The New York Times Book Review
"One of the most influential writers in American Literature."

- The Wall Street Journal

This was my first book on the subject of time travel, and I have been fascinated by it ever since. When compared to todays stories of such science-fiction, it is simplistic and almost childish, but I loved it, and have read it many times over the years. I enjoyed it more than any of Heinlein's other books.

I think that this was one of Heinleins better books. It kept my attention through the whole thing, and I really enjoyed it.

Still a personal favorite. Refreshingly chauvinistic and written before writers began mixing their pronouns. Pure fantasy (a guy and a cat? come on!) but still a good read for those of us still able to suspend our disbelief.

Heinlein shows his creative talents in this story of an inventor who is trying to get his life together after being cheated.
