1.0 out of 5 stars Foolish and Lazy Thievery July 14, 2012
Let's see, steal the title, description, and text of one of the most famous science fiction novels of the 20th century, a work actually written by Mr. Robert A. Heinlein, and don't expect anyone to notice, even if you offer it for $0.00? Oh, come on, what kind of fool does that scam artist think the reader is? Buy Mr. Heinlein's book instead; he wrote it. Don't buy from this Ibnul Jaif Farabi person, or whoever or whatever is actually behind it, for he or they are attempting copyright infringement, theft, and plagiarism. It's so blatant it's downright foolish and lazy. If you want to sell an ebook, write something original. Beneath contempt.

1.0 out of 5 stars THEFT! Shame on you, amazon! July 15, 2012
Have this so-called "author" and amazon have no shame at all? This is one of the most famous science-fiction books EVER, and is an blatant insult to the TRUE author, Robert Heinlein.

This really sets a new standard for piracy. How dumb really do you think we are??

Mr. Heinlein is not the only author being ripped off: C.J. Cherryh's renowned works, as well as books by other authors, are also being pirated and sold via amazon by this "author". SHAME. SHAME. SHAME. Not to mention ILLEGAL.

DO. NOT. BUY.

Amazon, please correct this travesty and take immediate measures to keep it from occurring again!

1.0 out of 5 stars YET ANOTHER COPYRIGHT INFRINGMENT July 14, 2012
By Weeble
Oh look, I've read this one before, only THEN it was by Robert A. Heinlein. This new "author" didn't even bother to change the title of the book by any more than one letter! And the cover art is ALSO lifted, from somewhere in the "Alien" series this time.

DON'T SUPPORT THIS!

AMAZON, SHAME ON YOU!

1.0 out of 5 stars Copyright infringement July 15, 2012
Copyright infringement is the unauthorized use of works under copyright, infringing the copyright holder's "exclusive rights", such as the right to reproduce or perform the copyrighted work, spread the information contained within copyrighted works, or to make derivative works. It often refers to copying "intellectual property" without written permission from the copyright holder, which is typically a publisher or other business representing or assigned by the work's creator. *Although not in this case. This item should be removed immediately!

1.0 out of 5 stars We must find a way to get Amazon to pay attention! July 15, 2012
If you scroll down far enough on the main listing page, you will find links to report the listing to Amazon. Unfortunately the link for reporting copyright infringement is only for use by the copyright owner.

Amazon needs to take action IMMEDIATELY. I think the only way they will is if they get LOTS of reports from users. They've never taken action on a single report from me. Time to team up!

Everybody scroll down to the "Would you like to report this content as inappropriate? Click here" link, click it, choose "Violates the Amazon Kindle Terms Of Service" or "Other" option, and provide a message that expresses your outrage. This was what I told them:

This is the most blatant copyright infringement ever self-published to Kindle. It is an outrage that this listing is allowed to exist. This "author"'s other listings include other infringements too.

Do not wait for the publisher to contact you, remove these severe offenses immediately and terminate the "author"'s account.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why is this page still up? July 16, 2012
The self-styled author of Robert Heinlein's (and others' work) was exposed as a thief over two days ago. Yet, amazingly, this page is still up. Shome mishtake shurely? (Yes, I WILL call you shurely, if it helps you WAKE UP!)

1.0 out of 5 stars Theft at an all time high. July 15, 2012
This is actually the Robert Heinlein novel that got me into reading as a youth. How Amazon can let this "author" steal this work and all the others is ridiculous. Get it together Kindle Store and pull these works.

This book was written by Heinlein. You can probably find it for under $2 at any decent used book store.

First of all, Martians as conceived by Robert A. Heinlein don't look like they were designed by H. R. Geiger. Second, this book was, in fact, written by Mr. Heinlein. Read more

This is blatant theft from the estate of Robert Heinlein. Amazon needs to help authorities track this person. He's stolen other works, too.
