Collects both the title novella and several short stories, including "And He Built a Crooked House" (one of my favorite Heinlein shorts). The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag is, no kidding, the scariest story I've ever read, with Heinlein seemingly channeling both H.P. Lovecraft and Philip Marlowe.It's a crime this book isn't in print; but maybe it's a good thing, too, because I hope Hollywood never discovers it.
