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.

Robert A. Heinlein - Time ​Enough for Love
The ​capstone and crowning achievement of Heinlein's famous Future History, Time Enough For Love follows Lazarus Long through a vast and magnificent timescape of centuries and worlds. Heinlein's longest and most ambitious work, it is the story of a man so in love with Life that he refused to stop living it; and so in love with Time that he became his own ancestor.

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 - Space ​Cadet
Only ​the best and brightest -- the strongest and the most courageous -- ever managed to become Space Cadets. They were the elite guard of the solar system, accepting missions others feared, taking risks no others dared, and upholding the peace of the solar system for the benefit of all. But before Matt could earn his rightful place in the ranks, his mettle would be tested in the most severe and extraordinary ways -- ways that would change him forever but would still not prepare him for the alien treacheries that awaited him on strange worlds far beyond his own.

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 - Job: ​A Comedy of Justice
After ​he firewalked in Polynesia, the world wasn't the same for Alexander Hergensheimer, now called Alec Graham. As natural accidents occurred without cease, Alex knew Armageddon and the Day of Judgement were near. Somehow he had to bring his beloved heathen, Margrethe, to a state of grace, and, while he was at it, save the rest of the world ....

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 - Farnham's ​Freehold
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. In the new world order, Farnham and his family, being members of the race that had nearly destroyed the world, were fit only to be slaves. After surviving a nuclear war, Farnham had no intention of being anybody's slave, but the tyrannical power of the Chosen Race reached throughout the world. Even if he managed to escape. Where could he run to?

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.”
