Robert A. Heinlein könyvei a rukkolán
Robert A. Heinlein - Friday
Friday is a secret courier. She is employed by a man known to her only as "Boss." Operating from and over a near-future Earth, in which North America has become Balkanized into dozens of independent states, where culture has become bizarrely vulgarized and chaos is the happy norm, she finds herself on shuttlecock assignment at Boss' seemingly whimsical behest. From New Zealand to Canada, from one to another of the new states of America's disunion, she keeps her balance nimbly with quick, expeditious solutions to one calamity and scrape after another.
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

Robert A. Heinlein - The Rolling Stones
When the Stone twins made up their minds to leave Lunar City in a secondhand spaceship, they hadn't planned on having their whole family accompany them. But the Stones were not your ordinary Lunar family - no way! - and their voyage through the solar system sure proved it. What began as a simple business expedition to Mars soon mushroomed into a dangerous situation when Grandma Stone was lost in space. Then, just when everything seemed to be getting better, a Martian flatcat came aboard and fouled up the works. But the real trouble didn't get underway until the Stones headed for the asteroid belt to take up a mining proposition they, somehow, couldn't refuse...
Robert A. Heinlein - Between Planets
The message had seemed simple, yet it was more complex than Don could have imagined. He was being called from Earth to an alien world for reasons unknown -- save only that his life depended on it. But setting out for Mars and getting there in good shape turned out to be a lot more complicated than Don ever would have guessed possible. It was trouble enough being inexplicably hounded by Earth's secret police. But when he was hijacked by Venusian rebels, Don suddenly realized that he was trapped in the center of a war between worlds that could change the fate of the Solar System forever!
Robert A. Heinlein - The Man Who Sold the Moon
Heinlein's monumental "Future History" series continues. Two scientists develop cheap solar power-and threaten the industrial status quo. The nation's cities are linked by a system of moving roads-and a strike can bring the entire country to a halt. Workers in an experimental atomic plant crack under the mental strain. And the space frontier is opened by an unlikely hero-D. D. Harriman, a billionaire with a dream: the dream of Space for All Mankind. The method? Anything that works. Maybe, in fact, Harriman goes too far. But he will give us the stars. . .
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 - 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.

Knowing of Hamilton's disenchantment with the modern world, they have recruited him to join their Glorious Revolution. Big mistake! The revolutionaries are about to find out that recruiting a superman was definitely not a good idea....

Robert A. Heinlein - A fenevad száma
A _Züllött Zsivány_ magánjacht két házaspárral a fedélzetén – egy család – a távoli univerzumokat járja. Utasai mindannyian kedélyes, érzéki emberek: zsenik. A probléma akkor kezdődik, amikor a hatdimenziós mértannal foglalkozó családfő felfedezi az időutazást. Ez nem tetszik az idegen hatalmaknak, mivel az embert nem tartják alkalmasnak az időutazás gyakorlására. Hőseink háborítatlan világába ekkor belecsöppen egy idegen, aki emberi alakban igyekszik megsemmisíteni a szabadalmat. A _Züllött Zsivány_ legénységének ettől kezdve egyetlen célja marad: minél előbb visszajutni a Földre, és figyelmeztetni az embereket a veszélyre. A visszatérési kísérlet azonban véget nem érő hajszává változik. _Heinlein egy egész sor alternatív világot és a valóság különféle fokozatait vonultatja fel. Hősei egytől egyig zsenik, kiváló matematikusok, akik a fenevad számának ismeretében bátran vágnak neki a küzdelemnek._ _Jellegzetes stílusban megírt, olvasmányos történet, kitűnő játék az olvasónak, aki szinte részesévé válik az eseményeknek._

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 - Stranger in a Strange Land
Stranger in a Strange Land is the epic saga of an earthling, Valentine Michael Smith, born and educated on Mars, who arrives on our planet with psi powers—telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, telekinesis, teleportation, pyrolysis, and the ability to take control of the minds of others—and complete innocence regarding the mores of man. 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. Heinlein won his second Hugo award for this novel, sometimes called Heinlein’s earthly “divine comedy.”
