Robert Heinlein's Expanded Universe
"The single most important and valuable Heinlein book ever published."-"Spider Robinson" Robert A. Heinlein has been hailed as one of the most forward-thinking science fiction writers of all time, and "Expanded Universe"(presented in two volumes) offers the perfect collection of his works to provide readers with true insights into his uniquely creative mind. Heinlein personally selected each story or essay for inclusion in this collection, which is ordered chronologically, starting with his first sale in 1939 of "Life-Line" to "Astounding" (for seventy dollars).This remarkable collection highlights the development of Heinlein's writing style and his philosophy on life throughout his career. More importantly, this collection is as close to an autobiography as anything Heinlein wrote during his life. Heinlein was an extremely private person who never wrote much about himself. In this exclusive collection, he offers forewords to most of his stories and essays (and an occasional afterword), giving readers a rare glimpse into the inner mind of the master. "Expanded Universe" is a must-have for any Heinlein enthusiast and any fan of science fiction. *** "From "Life-Line" (1939), one of his earliest works, to a tale of adventure on the moon ("Nothing Ever Happens On the Moon"), this collection demonstrates the formidable talent and irascible perceptions of one of the genre's most outspoken writers."-"Library Journal" "This is the book I've always wanted from Heinlein." -"John Bruni, GoodReads"

Friday
New Edition of the Hugo and Nebula nominated novel by one of the greatest science fiction authors of all time. "A charming protagonist in a story as sleekly engineered as a starship. This one should fly."--Publishers Weekly Friday is a secret courier and ardent lover. Employed by a man she only knows of as "Boss", she is given the most awkward and dangerous cases, which take her from New Zealand to Canada, and through the new States of America's disunion, all the way out into the stars and the new colony of Botany Bay. Thrust into one calamity after another, she uses her enhanced wits and very many skills to evade, seduce or even kill her way out of any sticky situation she finds herself in. For she is both superior and inferior to the average human. As an AP--artificial person--the best humanity has to offer has been written into Friday's DNA. Yet she is often treated like a second-class citizen--if she were ever able to claim citizenship. Her mother was the test tube and her father the knife, as the saying goes, so she has less rights than the biologically-born human, and no soul, according to the church. But in Friday Heinlein has created one of the most enlightened, warm, engaging, and humane characters in the science fiction field, gifting us a novel of female empowerment that was well ahead of its time. "One of Heinlein's best, which is to say one of the best in all of Science Fiction--terrific story with a superbly realized heroine and world."--Poul Anderson
