Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Robert Heinlein wrote about the future because the future is where all of us will live. He made footsteps big enough for a whole country to follow. And it was our country that did it...We proceed down a path marked by his ideas. That's legacy enough for any man. He showed us where the future is." -Tom Clancy

"A powerful tribute to the late Robert A. Heinlein." -Booklist

"Half the people in the space program, today and this past half century were lured in by Robert Heinlein and those who followed his path...He was admired and envied for more than half a century by the brightest human beings on Earth." -Larry Niven

After serving as a naval officer for five years, he retired for health reasons and began publishing SF in 1939. Considered the dean of American SF writers, Heinlein was loved and emulated during the half century that he wrote SF. He wrote dozens of novels and short stories, including Double Star, Stranger in a Strange Land, and The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, all of which won Hugo Awards. Heinlein was the recipient of the First Grand Master Nebula in 1975, and he was the guest of honor at three World SF Conventions: in 1941, 1961, and 1976. He has repeatedly been voted "best all-time author" in readers' polls. Robert A. Heinlein passed away in 1988.
