    Robert A. Heinlein is widely and justly regarded as the greatest practitioner of the art of science fiction who has ever lived. Here are two of his greatest short novels: Gulf, in which the greatest super-spy of them all is revealed as the leader of a league of supermen and women who can’t quite decide what to do with the rest of us. And Lost Legacy, in which it is proved that we are all members of that league - or would be, if we but had eyes to see.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book has 3 fun and thought provoking stories that move quickly. Bronson Pinchot does a great job (I also love his Bronson Pinchot Project) bringing the characters to life.

    . C. “Scar” Gordon was on the French Riviera recovering from a tour of combat in Southeast Asia, but he hadn’t given up his habit of scanning the personals in the newspaper. One ad in particular leapt out at him: "Are you a coward? This is not for you. We badly need a brave man. He must be 23 to 25 years old, in perfect health, at least six feet tall, weigh about 190 pounds, fluent English with some French, proficient with all weapons, some knowledge of engineering and mathematics essential...."

    Where does Glory Road rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book isn't a top Heinlein story, but it is a nice mix of science fiction and fantasy.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Glory Road?

    The story is a bit out there but really brings to mind that magic could merely be technology we don't understand

    Farmer In The Sky is a 1953 science fiction novel by Robert A. Heinlein about a teenage boy who emigrates with his family to Jupiter's moon Ganymede, which is in the process of being terraformed. A condensed version of the novel was published in serial form in 1950 in Boys' Life magazine (August, September, October, November), under the title "Satellite Scout".

    Katherine says: "A Heinlein Juvenile"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Farmer in the Sky to be better than the print version?

    I'm seriously glad they are doing more Heinlein! He's my favorite author from when I was a kid, now my kids love him too!
