Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
1.      Heinlein wrote an amazing string of novels which made the New York Times best seller list and shipped over a million copies each, including Time Enough for Love, The Number of the Beast, Friday, Job: A Comedy of Justice, The Cat Who Walks Through Walls, and To Sail Beyond the Sunset.

2.      Over 25 million Heinlein books are in print in the U.S. alone. For over four decades, his Stranger in a Strange Land has been, not just one of the top-selling science fiction novels, but one of the top-selling novels, period.

3.      Stephen King has called Heinlein “Not only America’s premier writer of speculative fiction, but the greatest writer of such fiction in the world.” And Dean Koontz agrees: “If there is any single author who defines science fiction, it is Robert Heinlein . . . there is no other writer whose work has exhilarated me as often and to such an extent as Heinlein.”

4.      Advertising in Locus, more.

5.      Includes teaser chapter for Heinlein’s The Puppet Masters (trade paperback, 08/09).

6.      Cover by Hugo-winning artist Bob Eggleton pays homage to classics science fiction book covers.

7.      Heinlein backlist discounts.

The Earth is crowded and food is rationed, but a colony on Ganymede, one of the moons of Jupiter, offers an escape for teenager Bill Lermer and his family. Back on Earth, the move sounded like a grand adventure, but Bill soon realizes that life on the frontier is dangerous, and in an alien world with no safety nets, nature is cruelly unforgiving of even small mistakes. Bill’s new home is a world of unearthly wonders—and heartbreaking tragedy. He will face hardships, survive dangers, and grow up fast, meeting the challenge of opening up a new world for humanity and finding strengths within himself that he had never suspected existed.

Comprehensive Teacher's Guide available.

Review:
Bill knew his destiny lay in the stars, but how was he to get there?
George Lerner was shipping out for Ganymede to join the fledgling colony, and Bill wanted to go along. But his father would not hear of it -- far too dangerous a mission!
Bill finally talked his way aboard the colony ship Mayflower -- and discovered his father was right!
