Expanded Universe

by Robert A. Heinlein

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.

The Wit and Wisdom of Robert A. Heinlein, author of multiple New York Times best sellers, on subjects ranging form Crime and Punishment to the Love life of the American Teenager; from Nuclear Power to the Pragmatics of Patriotism; from Prophecy to Destiny; from Geopolitic to Post-Holocaust America; fro the Nature of Courage to the Nature of Reality; it's all here and it's all great-straight from the mind of the finest science fiction writer of them all. But beware: after reading it, you too will occupy an Expanded Universe!
