    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.

    Trip Williams says: "You'll like it because you can think..."
    "Must have for any Heinlein Fan."

    If you could sum up Assignment in Eternity in three words, what would they be?

    Heinlein Early Years


    What did you like best about this story?

    The roots to many later novels by the grandmaster. You can see the development of the concepts that run through many of his later works.


    What does Bronson Pinchot bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Awesome Characterization!! I had already feel in love with his narration of Glory Road!! I loved the life he gave to many old favorite characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I doubt that Hollywood will touch any of these stories as is. Look what they did to Starship Troops and Puppet Masters.


    Any additional comments?

    I keep hoping that Expanded Universe would be converted to Audio. This was a good additional to the audio library of Heinlein work.
