Overview

Set in Robert A. Heinlein’s Future History universe, REVOLT IN 2100 includes “IF THIS GOES ON—”, his novella “Coventry” and story “Misfit”, his Future History charts, “Future History Letter Essay” and the author’s “Concerning Stories Never Written” Postscript.

“IF THIS GOES ON—” The Second American Revolution unfolds in the course of this novel where John Lyle, West Point graduate and now a guard at the Prophet’s stronghold, comes to realize that “secrecy is the keystone of all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy . . . censorship.” After he joins an underground movement to overthrow the U.S. government, John learns much along the way about courage, subversion -- (a fellow conspirator tells him, “There is magic in words, black magic—if you know how to invoke it”) – and sacrifice.

“Coventry’ takes place years after America’s Second Revolution and posits a benevolent but strongly monitored new society, with its own rules and surveillance arm.

“Misfit” concerns a young genius who averts disaster in a mission to bring a small asteroid closer to Earth.

The author’s essay about Future History stories he *won’t* write provides an entertaining look at Heinlein’s richly imagined world.
