Robert A. Heinlein - The ​Day After Tomorrow
The ​Day After Tomorrow, is Rbt A. Heinlein novel based on a John W. Campbell story about a USA conquered by a Sino-Japanese PanAsian combination. Published in Astounding Science Fiction (1-3/41 by 'Anson MacDonald') it came out in hardback in '49. A secret research facility in the Colorado mountains is the US Army's last outpost after defeat by the PanAsians. The conquerors had absorbed the USSR after being attacked by them & had then absorbed India. They're ruthless, having crushed a rebellion by killing 150,000 civilians as punishment. The lab is in turmoil. All but six of the personnel have died due to unknown forces released by an experiment operating within the newly-discovered magneto-gravitic or electro-gravitic spectra. Survivors learn they can selectively kill by releasing the internal pressure of cell membranes. This weapon can kill one race while leaving others unharmed. They devise more uses for the forces discovered, but how do a handful overthrow an occupation that controls all communications & makes it criminal to print English? Noting the invaders have allowed religious practice to pacify their slaves, they start a church & act as Priests of Mota (atom backwards) to build a resistance movement which Major Ardmore, the protagonist, refers to as the 6th Column--as opposed to a traitorous 5th.

The revolutionaries are about to find out that recruiting a superman was definitely not a good idea....

Robert A. Heinlein - Matuzsálem ​gyermekei
A ​2125. év túlcivilizálódott világa sok mindent elvisel, de az már végképp feldühíti az embereket, hogy a Családok tagjai valószínűtlenül hosszú életűek.

Robert A. Heinlein - Őrjárat ​a világűrben
"- ​Gyere már! - Ó hogyne, jövök! - Két görgőjárda húzódott az állomástól a hallig. A fiúk ráálltak az egyikre és az már rohant is velük az épület felé. Sok fiú özönlött oda az állomásról jövet. A görgő járda tehát tömve volt. Matt megfigyelt két hosszúkás barna arcú fiút, fejükön magas, szorost a csavart turbánt hordtak, bár egyébként ruházatuk hasonló volt az övéhez. Azonkívül, valamivel távolabb észrevett a járdán egy magas, csinos fiatalembert, akinek érzéketlen arca feketén fénylett. A texasi fiú hüvelykujját övébe akasztotta és körülnézett. - Mamám, hamar még egy pár csirkét, sokan vagyunk a tálhoz! Ha már arról van szó, - folytatta - remélem nem kell soká várnunk az ebédre. Nagyon éhes vagyok. Matt kihalászott a zsebéből egy rúd cukorkát, kettétörte és a felét Jarmannak adta. Ez hálásan fogadta az adományt. - Köszönöm, jó pajtás vagy - mondta. - A reggeli óta már a saját zsíromon élek - ennek fele sem tréfa!"

Robert A. Heinlein - Methuselah's ​Children
The ​Howard Families were the product of a genetic experiment, an interbreeding programme which had produced one hundred thousand people with an average life expectancy of a century and a half. Now, at last, their existence was known on earth, and the entire world demanded to share the "secret" of eternal youth. "It is contrary to our customs to permit scientific knowledge to be held as a monopoly for the few" was what the expert said and it wasn't long before members of the Howard Families were the victims of vicious crime. This dramatic and frighteningly believable novel is a welcome addition to the oeuvre of a brilliant science-fiction writer.

After his tutelage under a surrogate-father figure, Valentine begins his transformation into a messiah figure. His introduction into Earth society, together with his exceptional abilities, lead Valentine to become many things to many people: freak, scam artist, media commodity, searcher, free-love pioneer, neon evangelist, and martyr.

Az SF elsőként megválasztott nagymestere óriási hatással volt az irodalmi irányzat fejlődésére, és olyan későbbi szerzőket inspirált, mint Joe Haldeman vagy John Scalzi. Ezt a regényét mindössze 13 nap alatt írta, de népszerűsége azóta is töretlen, a Locus magazin olvasói háromszor is beszavazták minden idők legjobb SF-történetei közé. „Kötelező olvasmány.” – Brian W.

Robert A. Heinlein - Revolt ​in 2100
You ​can read about its beginnings in the the immortal Stranger in a Strange Land: At the height of America's secular decadence came Nehemiah Scudder, bearing the rod and the wraith of the Lord for those who opposed him, and the promise of earthly happiness and heavenly bliss for those who followed him... and America fell under an absolute religious dictatorship that was to last a hundred years.

Robert A. Heinlein - Élősdiek
Csak ​kevesen ismerték fel, hogy a Földet idegen lények szállták meg. Űrhajóik észrevétlenül érkeztek meg Észak-Amerika területére. A különös teremtmények szinte pillanatok alatt felügyeletük alá vonták a politikát, a tömeg¬tájékoztatást és a gazdaságot. A végzetes veszélyt azok is vonakodtak beismerni, akik helyzetükből fakadóan még tehettek volna ellene valamit. A titkosszolgálat próbálkozásai is kudarcba fulladtak. Eközben az élősdiek, amelyek korlátlanul uralták az általuk megszállt emberek gondolkodását és tetteit, gyorsabban szaporodtak, mintsem védekezni lehetett volna ellenük. Csupán Sam Cavanaugh, az USA legjobb, legrátermettebb és legelszántabb titkos ügynöke remélhette, hogy sikerül megtalálnia az élősködők elpusztításának módját. Ehhez persze egészen közel kellett engednie magához az egész emberiséget fenyegető, undorító lényeket. A könyv alapján Paraziták címmel filmet készítettek, amelyet a hazai mozik is bemutattak.

Robert A. Heinlein - Sixth ​Column

Robert A. Heinlein - Grumbles ​from the Grave
The ​late Heinlein, considered the "Father of Modern Science Fiction," was also a prolific letter writer. Virginia Heinlein, his wife of 40 years, has skillfully organized a selection of his voluminous correspondence. The result is a memoir that will appeal not just to fans, but to anyone interested in the creative process. Heinlein's letters, mostly addressed to his long-time agent, are grouped into topical chapters: ''About Writing Methods and Cutting''; Fan Mail and Other Time Wasters''; and ''Stranger,'' (referring to his novel, Stranger in a Strange Land ). Other chapters cover domestic concerns, travel, etc. Coupled with Virginia Heinlein's commentary, this arrangement helps alleviate the disjointedness often associated with similar compilations. While the book is not autobiographical, it does reveal the psyche of a popular science fiction author. Highly recommended for libraries from high school level on up.

Robert A. Heinlein - The ​Red Planet

Peace with the Martians was at stake -- failure to pull off the act could result in interplanetary war. And Smythe's own life was on the line -- for if he wasn't assassinated, there was always the possibility that he might be trapped in his new role forever!

Robert A. Heinlein - Angyali ​üdvözlet
Furcsa, ​felkavaró könyv, döntő jelentősége volt a sci-fi irodalom sorsának alakulására. Nemcsak azt érte el, hogy a sci-fik bekerültek az irodalom főáramába, hanem azt is, hogy e regény az 1960-as évek ellenkultúra mozgalma, a szabad szerelem és a semmi által nem korlátozott életmód jelképévé vált. Valentine Michael Smith, az első Mars-felfedezők elárvult gyermeke a marslakóknál nevelkedik, egy expedíció hozza vissza a Földre. Bár amikor leérkezik, a húszas éveiben jár, Smith mintegy kisgyermekként mint ismeretlen világot ismeri meg a földi életet. Szembe kell néznie azzal a nagy feladattal, hogy megtanuljon ember lenni. Sosem látott nőt, és nincs tudása az emberi kultúráról és a vallásokról sem. Smith a spiritualitásról és a szabad szerelemről vallott nézeteit terjeszti, és a Marson tanult pszichikus erőhatást gyakorolja. Idővel egyre több embert térít meg gondolkodásmódja, és messiás jellegű alakká válik, aminek igen nagy jelentőségű következményei lesznek. A történet óriási szatíra emberi mivoltunkról, viszonyunkról a szerelemhez, a politikához, és mindenekelőtt a tételes vallásokhoz, amelyeket végletesen képmutatónak láttat. Az a tény, hogy az olvasók reakciója nyomán több vallási mozgalom is keletkezett, bizonyára megrendítette a szerzőt, akinek üzenete mintha éppen annak erőteljes kifejezését váltotta volna ki, hogy az emberek vágyódnak arra, hogy legyenek próféták és eszmék, amelyeket követhetnek.
