Description

Two classic Robert A. Heinlein novels in one volume: The Man Who Sold The Moon and Orphans of the Sky. In The Man Who Sold the Moon, D. D. Harriman is a billionaire with a dream: the dream of space for all mankind. The method? Anything that works. Maybe, in fact, Harriman goes too far. But he will give us the stars...And, in Orphans of the Sky, Hugh had been taught that, according to the ancient sacred writings, the Ship was on a voyage to faraway Centaurus. But he also understood that this must be allegory for a voyage to spiritual perfection. After all, the real world was only metal corridors and nothing else, right? And then Hugh begins to suspect the truth...

Heinlein is a seven-time Hugo Award recipient and was given the first Grand Master Nebula Award for lifetime achievement.
