9781476736358: Waldo & Magic, Inc.

NEW INTRODUCTION BY TIM POWERS! Compelling SF and fantasy adventure from legendary science fiction master and multiple New York Times best selling author Robert A. Heinlein. Contains Waldo and Magic, Inc.

Waldo
North Power-Air is in trouble. Their aircraft are crashing at an alarming rate, and no one can figure out the cause.  Desperate for an answer, they turn to Waldo, a crippled genius who lives in a zero-g home in orbit around Earth. But Waldo has little reason to want to help the rest of humanity—until he learns that the solution to Earth’s problems also hold the key to his own.

Magic, Inc.
Under the guise of an agency for magicians, Magic, Inc. systematically squeezed out the small independent magicians. But one man stands firm.  And with the help of an Oxford-educated African shaman and a little old lady adept at black magic, he is willing to take on the demons of Hell to resolve the problem—once and for all!

New introduction by Tim Powers!

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.

Book Description Baen Books, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Introducing two classic short novels by Robert A. Heinlein, science fiction s Grand Master. Don t count out the underdog! Waldo North Power Air is in trouble. Their aircraft are crashing at an alarming rate and no one can figure out the cause. Desperate for an answer, they turn to Waldo, a crippled misanthropic genius who lives in a home in orbit around Earth, where the absence of gravity means that his feeble muscle strength does not confine him helplessly in a wheelchair. But Waldo has little reason to want to help the rest of humanity - until he learns that the solution to Earth s problems also holds the key to his own. In a world where almost everything is done by magic spells, Magic, Inc., under the guise of an agency for magicians, is systematically squeezing the small independent magicians out of business. Then one businessman stood firm. And with the help of an Oxford-educated African shaman and a little old lady adept at black magic, he was willing to take on all the demons of Hell to resolve the problem - once and for all.
