Robert A. Heinlein - Orphans ​of the Sky
Hugh ​had been taught that, according to the ancient sacred writings, the Ship was on a voyage to faraway Centaurus. But he also understood this was actually allegory for a voyage to spiritual perfection. Indeed, how could the Ship move, since its miles and miles of metal corridors were all there was of creation? Science knew that the Ship was all the Universe, and as long as the sacred Convertor was fed, the lights would continue to glow and the air would flow, and the Creator's Plan would be fulfilled. Of course, there were the muties, grotesquely deformed parodies of humans, who lurked in the upper reaches of the Ship where gravity was weaker. Were they evil incarnate, or merely a divine check on the population, keeping humanity from expanding past the capacity of the Ship to support? Then Hugh was captured by the muties and met their leader (or leaders), Joe-Jim, with two heads on one body. And he learned the true nature of the Ship and its mission between the stars. But could he make his people believe him before it was to late? Could he make them believe that he must be allowed to fly the ship?

Robert A. Heinlein - The ​Worlds of Robert A. Heinlein
In ​this exciting collection master science-fiction storyteller Robert Heinlein explores some strange and frightening possibilities: The possibility that a young girl, blind and alone, could be lost somewhere on the vast face of the moon. The possibility that someone could possess the ultimate weapon - for which no deterrent exists - at the same time knowing that any other country could discover the weapon at the same moment:- Review(s): "Robert Heinlein, winner of three Hugo Awards uses just such possibilities in these famous stories, many of which helped establish his worldwide reputation":

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 - Kettős ​csillag
Lorenzo ​Smythe, a lecsúszott színész bárokban tengeti napjait, alkoholmámorba menekülve szakmai kudarcai elől. Aztán egyszer egy idegen meghívja egy italra, és mire észbe kap, egy űrhajón csücsül, úton a Mars felé. Megbízóitól megtudja, hogy élete legfontosabb szerepét szánják neki, de ha nem vigyáz, ez lesz az utolsó is. Egy, az ellenlábasai által elrabolt, vezető politikust kell helyettesítenie, és a tét nem kevesebb, mint háború vagy béke, méghozzá bolygóközi szinten! A Nagy Lorenzónak tehát össze kell szednie magát, mert ezúttal nem csupán a kritikusokat kell meggyőznie alakításával, hanem párthíveit és ellenségeit is, mert amennyiben kiderül a turpisság, aranyélete egyszeriben véget ér. Ha azonban elég hihetően játszik, könnyen egy merénylő célkeresztjében találhatja magát. Az SF nagymestere Hugo-díjas regényében maró politikai szatírát vegyített a tőle megszokott vérbeli tudományos-fantasztikumba, és a végeredmény egy olyan klasszikus lett, amelyet mára a szépirodalmi kánon is befogadott. _„Senki más nem tudja a Heinleinéhez hasonló profizmussal ötvözni a tudományt és a fantasztikumot.”_ – New York Herald Tribune

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!

You ​Would Have Peace? Then Prepare for War! Hugh Farnham was a practical, self-made man and when he saw the clouds of nuclear war gathering, he built a bomb shelter under his house, hoping for peace and preparing for war. What he hadn't expected was that when the apocalypse came, a thermonuclear blast would tear apart the fabric of time and hurl his shelter into a world with no sign of other human beings. But Farnham's small group had barely settled down to the back-breaking business of low-tech survival when they found that they were not alone after all. The same nuclear war that had catapulted Farnham two thousand years into the future had destroyed all civilization in the northern hemisphere. And the world had changed in more ways than one.

Robert A. Heinlein - A ​Hold börtönében
„Kis ​lépés egy embernek, de hatalmas ugrás az emberiségnek.” E szavakkal lépett a Hold felszínére 1969-ben Neil Armstrong. Mintegy száz évvel később, egy újabb nagy ugrásnak köszönhetően immár iparosodott az egész égitest. Bányák és gyárak mindenütt, ám a megtermelt javak nem a telepeseket gazdagítják, minden a Földet illeti meg. Ez azonban természetes, a Hold ugyanis egy ideje gigantikus büntetőtelepként üzemel. Tökéletes börtön, hiszen aki néhány évet eltölt itt, a csekély gravitációhoz való alkalmazkodásnak köszönhetően már nem térhet vissza az anyabolygóra. A „holdlakók” felnövekvő új nemzedékében aztán igény ébred a függetlenségre, arra, hogy a Hold a maga ura lehessen. A Föld kormányainak ez persze nem tetszik, úgy döntenek hát, akár erővel is megőrzik fennhatóságukat. Az elszabadult indulatok elkerülhetetlenül háborúba torkollnak. Mannie, a félkarú komputertechnikus akaratán kívül keveredik bele a politikai játszmákba, amikor a Hold legnagyobb szuperszámítógépe meghibásodik. A hiba azonban egyáltalán nem az, aminek látszik: HOLMES IV egyszerűen öntudatra ébredt, és úgy döntött, kiveszi részét az emberek függetlenségi háborújából. Az SF első Nagymestere ezzel a Hugo-díjas regényével írta bele magát kitörölhetetlenül az irodalomtörténetbe. A Hold börtönébent három ízben szavazták az olvasók minden idők tíz legfontosabb SF-műve közé. „Az ő ötletei jelölték ki a mi utunkat.” – Tom Clancy „Egy szó jut eszembe róla: kihagyhatatlan.” – Robert Silverberg „Robert A. Heinlein talán minden idők legfontosabb SF-írója.” – The Science Fiction Encyclopedia

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 - 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!"
