Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
ROBERT HEINLEIN is an author who works at the very core of science fiction, an innovator whose ideas, attitudes and storytelling techniques revolutionised sf during the ’40s and 50s. Concerned as much with scientific accuracy as with his ingenious stories, the author of the classic Starship Troopers and Stranger in a Strange Land breathed vitality into the pulp magazines for which he wrote. This collection of eight short stories is intended to show the development of a key writer at the peak of his career.

The collection includes
The Roads Must Roll
Gigantic moving roadways span the globe in a story totally relevant to modern times.

The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag
Mr. Hoag was a nice man who worried about his work. The trouble was he couldn't remember what he did. He had the strangest case of amnesia ever – it only operated from nine to five.

The Man Who Sold The Moon
Financier D. D. Harriman of Free Enterprise America had a plan to conquer the Moon – and his motives weren't entirely philanthropic. He wanted to make money out of it.

This anthology includes a complete bibliography and an introduction by Peter R. Weston.
