HEINLEIN’S FUTURE HISTORY
The first volume in a stunning new anthology of SF stories.
In 1939, inspired by a short-story contest, Robert Heinlein wrote his first story. It was called Lifeline, and it signalled the beginning of a brilliant literary career. It was the first of Heinlein's 'future history' tales.
In this two-volume anthology are collected the twenty short stories and novellas which form the core of Heinlein's achievement, accompanied by the author's own chart showing the scheme of the events and ideas covered. They prove, once and for all, Heinlein's true claim to the title 'Dean of science fiction'.
