Publisher's Blurb – Dust Jacket Flap
By the Author of The Puppet Masters

Joel Abner, agent of the Federal Bureau of Security, disguised as a commercial traveller, arrives from the Moon, carrying an incredibly valuable spool of micro-film. He becomes Captain Gilead, explorer and lecturer -- but the transformation fails to deceive those who wish to relieve him of the film -- and they close in. Thus begins one of the most gripping and exciting stories ever written by Robert A. Heinlein. And it is only one of four long stories which make up Assignment in Eternity.

A new Heinlein book is an Event for the many thousands of readers who enjoy really good Science Fiction -- and we know you will agree that Assignment in Eternity ranks with this talented writer's best work.
