About the Author
Robert Anson Heinlein was born in Missouri in 1907, and was raised there. He graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1929, but was forced by illness to retire from the Navy in 1934. He settled in California and over the next five years held a variety of jobs while doing post-graduate work in mathematics and physics at the University of California. In 1939 he sold his first science fiction story to Astounding magazine and soon devoted himself to the genre.
He was a four-time winner of the Hugo Award for his novels Stranger in a Strange Land (1961), Starship Troopers (1959), Double Star (1956), and The Moon is a Harsh Mistress (1966). His Future History series, incorporating both short stories and novels, was first mapped out in 1941. The series charts the social, political, and technological changes shaping human society from the present through several centuries into the future.
Robert A. Heinlein's books were among the first works of science fiction to reach bestseller status in both hardcover and paperback. He continued to work into his eighties, and his work never ceased to amaze, to entertain, and to generate controversy. By the time hed died, in 1988, it was evident that he was one of the formative talents of science fiction: a writer whose unique vision, unflagging energy, and persistence, over the course of five decades, made a great impact on the American mind.

EDITORS, PROOFREADERS, OR ANYONE IN CHARGE OF THE KINDLE EDITION:
I will proofread and correct your Kindle edition for free. I am a professional technical writer, editor, and professor.
The Kindle edition is so full of errors it is difficult to read. It's not the occasional flub caused by scanning and then converting an old file, something like a missing apostrophe. The Kindle edition has numerous errors, many of them serious enough to confuse the reader. Character names are misspelled. Sentences are lacking end punctuation.
I say this as a fan of Heinlein's book: you have injured a classic SF novel. You have, quite frankly, reduced the quality of the work through lack of proofreading. I am not some grammar pedant who has identified a single error or two and would like everyone to know about my erudition. I know that today's publishing market moves fast and the margins are thin. That is why I offer, again, to proofread and correct the many mistakes in this long and otherwise wonderful book. I will perform this service for FREE. Please contact me.

This novel is often referred to as the 2nd book in the Lazarus Long Series (Methuselah's Children, Time Enough For Love, The Number of the Beast, The Cat Who Walks Through Walls and To Sail Beyond the Sunset). Lazarus Long (nee Woodrow Wilson Smith) is the longest living member of the Howard Families. The book includes numerous short stories/tales as told by Lazarus through Justin Foote (Chief Archivist) and also includes a number of his "saying" (collected in another book as well.) Stories in the book are about events that take place after Methuselah's Children. And one about meeting his mother (and himself). It is fun, amazing, sad, and enlightening.
If you have enjoyed Heinlein's Future History novels, you will probably enjoy this one as well.
