Compelling science fiction adventure from New York Times bestseller Robert A. Heinlein: two classic novellas, Gulf and Lost Legacy, and two short stories with speculation on what makes us human.

Compelling science fiction adventure from New York Times bestseller Robert A. Heinlein: two classic novellas and two short stories with speculation on what makes us human.

Gulf: in which the greatest superspy of them all is revealed as the leader of a league of supermen and women who can't decide on quite what to do with the rest of us. The prequel to Heinlein's later New York Times best seller, Friday.

Lost Legacy: in which it is proved that we are all members of that league of the superhuman–or would be, if we but had eyes to see.

Plus a double dose of great short stories, with two of the master's finest: one on the nature of being, the other on what it means to be a man. The second story, "Jerry Was a Man," was adapted for the TV series Masters of Science Fiction, and is now available on DVD.

About Robert A. Heinlein:
“Not only America's premier writer of speculative fiction, but the greatest writers of such fiction in the world.”—Stephen King.

“One of the grand masters of science fiction.”—Wall Street Journal

About the Author:

Robert A Heinlein is considered one of the Big Three of classic science fiction (along with Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke). Heinlein is a seven-time Hugo Award recipient and was given the first Grand Master Nebula Award for lifetime achievement. Heinlein’s juveniles alone have influenced generations of scientists, engineers and creators the world over (for instance, it was once estimated that everyone in the Apollo 11 mission control room had read and loved at least one Heinlein novel). His worldwide bestsellers include Have Space Suit—Will Travel, Stranger in a Strange Land, Starship Troopers, Time Enough for Love, and The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress.

Review:

Praise for Robert A. Heinlein:

''He made footsteps big enough for a whole country to follow . . . We proceed down a path marked by his ideas. He showed us where the future is.'' --Tom Clancy

''The word that comes to mind for him is 'essential'. As a writer--eloquent, impassioned, technically innovative--he reshaped science fiction in a way that defined it for every writer who followed him . . . He was the most significant science fiction writer since H. G. Wells.'' --Robert Silverberg
