Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
In the ranks of SF novelists Robert Heinlein reigns supreme — not only as a master story-teller but also as a prophet of the near and distant future.

THE MAN WHO SOLD THE MOON is a key work in Heinlein's majestic plan of the years ahead. The stories are masterpieces in their own right but at the same time form an integral part in an overall scheme and certainly add to our appreciation of his other novels.

Robert Heinlein — winner of countless awards and prizes and magnificently prolific — still maintains the standard of excellence which has made his name justly famous as a great writer in any field.
