"The Man Who ..." may be RAH's most intriguing short story before he fell into the novella and adult length genres. Incredible attention to details and twists and turns. Joe 2015

Heinlein's Future History...
These stories have "aged" surprisingly well. I find myself just as excited by the audiobook version as I was on my first reading of the book, now many years ago.
The voicing made the book stand out as even more memorable than my first experience reading it.
"Requiem" very nearly brought me to tears.
Rated PG 13 for mild profanity. (Single instance.)
