Attic > Expanded Universe

by Robert A. Heinlein

This paperback is a collection of short stories, starting with his pulp stories in Astounding Sciece Fiction and Unknown. Twenty-seven great short stories, plus a note from the author between each short story, explaining the story and or circumstances behind it.

Organized in chornological order, these stories combined with the authors commentary, gives you a unique view into the career of an incredible story teller. This also reflects the evolution of the science fiction genre that he helped to bring to mainstream readers.

"If there is anything that can divert the land of my birth from its current stampede into the Stone Age, it is the widespread dissemination of the thoughts and perceptions that Robert Heinlein has been selling as entertainment since 1939." -- Spider Robinson

"A fascinating look at the mind of the most influential sf writer of all time. Recommended." -- Locus

"Would you consider buying a book just because I asked you to? It's called EXPANDED UNIVERSE." -- Algis Budrys
