Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
"Robert Heinlein wrote about the future because the future is where all of us will live. He made footsteps big enough for a whole country to follow. And it was our country that did it... We proceed down a path marked by his ideas. That’s legacy enough for any man. He showed us where the future is."
Tom Clancy

REQUIEM is a compelling celebration of Robert A. Heinlein and his vision, containing many new and uncollected works by the Grand Master of science fiction, including two major novellas: DESTINATION MOON, which was made into the famous George Pal film, and TENDERFOOT IN SPACE. There are contributions from such luminaries as Arthur C. Clarke, Robert Silverberg, Spider Robinson, and Gordon R. Dickson, as well as an introduction by Virginia Heinlein.

Heinlein was the pre-eminent science fiction writer of the twentieth century. REQUIEM reveals the story of Heinlein’s passion for space exploration-his glory and his dream.

"A powerful tribute to the late Robert A. Heinlein."
Booklist

"Half the people in the space program, today and this past half century were lured in by Robert Heinlein and those who followed his path... He was admired and envied for more than half a century by the brightest human beings on Earth."
Larry Niven
