Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Science Fiction Grand Master Robert A. Heinlein’s long-lost first novel FOR US, THE LIVING introduces the ideas and themes that would shape his career and define the genre that is synonymous with his name.

"Fascinating... An irresistible new look at a literary giant."
The Denver Post

July 12, 1939. Naval airman Perry Nelson is driving along the sun-drenched palisades when suddenly his car careens off the road—and he awakes in a strange, snowy mountain landscape. A fur-clad woman rescues him from the bitter cold... and soon reveals that the year is now 2086. After his shock subsides, Perry attempts to discover how the world has changed over the past 150 years, learning how humanity has advanced in technology and intellect. But this education brings with it inescapable truths, and the customs of this future world continually test his mental and emotional resolve. Yet it is precisely his knowledge of a bygone era that will serve Perry best, as he unexpectedly leads his peers toward a new horizon that they had never imagined...

Introduction by acclaimed science fiction writer Spider Robinson.
Afterword by Professor Robert James of the Heinlein Society
