Two short novels 

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:


In which the greatest superspy 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.

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. 

Plus two great stories

A pair of the Master’s finest: one on the nature of Being, the other on what it means to be a man.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Like most of Heinlein’s writing, Assignment in Eternity is immediately engaging. Various sci-fi stories of the distant and near future reflect his classic blend of individualism and futurism. Bronson Pinchot infuses the stories with a Golden Age Radio sensibility, using both broad drama and subtle nuances in accent to develop the future settings. Pinchot’s deep voice is perfectly suited to Heinlein’s generally masculine themes. His female voices are rough but adequate. Even Heinlein’s invented language, “Speedtalk,” proves little challenge. Although understanding the brief exchanges is unnecessary, Pinchot makes the strange syllables sound entirely natural.”


Listener Opinions

    " I hate to give 2 stars but for me it was just OK. I have liked his stories before but this pair of stories just didn't catch my attention. I haven't been a big sci fi fan so take my opinion based on that info. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Mark Stratton | 1/7/2014

    " I just couldn't finish it. It's not that the writing was bad (it wasn't), but I had a hard time with period people (from the mid-20th Century) in futuristic situations. It didn't quite work for me. I bailed midway through "Lost Legacy" "

    " Contains my favorite short story, "Lost Legacy" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jeff Yoak | 1/4/2014

    " I really enjoyed the two short novels, Gulf and Lost Legacy. Though I read these at some point a long time ago, I had so little memory it was like reading them for the first time. Given that I'm out of new Heinlein, this is a rare treat. "
