Editorial Reviews

Review

“One of the coolest gifts you can get for your favorite sci-fi geek . . . You’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but these new Penguin Galaxy hardcovers make it really hard.” —Gizmodo

“Serious science fiction and fantasy readers cannot resist the classics. . . . That’s what makes the Penguin Galaxy series so appealing. . . . Each of the novels here has earned their place in the halls of literary history. . . . Their small form factor and minimalist covers call out to readers and make them fun to read all over again.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A brilliant mind-bender . . . Wonderfully humanizing . . . The name of the leading character in Stranger in a Strange Land is as familiar to millions of literate persons as Oliver Twist or Holden Caulfield.” —Kurt Vonnegut, The New York Times
 
“Certainly among the most influential . . . science fiction novel[s] of all time . . . A resounding success.” —The Guardian

Robert A. Heinlein (1907–1988) was a four-time winner of the Hugo Award, for his novels Stranger in a Strange Land, Starship Troopers, Double Star, and The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress. His Future History series, incorporating both short stories and novels and first mapped out in 1941, charts the social, political, and technological changes shaping human society from the present through several centuries into the future. Heinlein’s books were among the first works of science fiction to reach bestseller status in both hardcover and paperback.
