Compelling science fiction adventure from New York Times bestseller Robert A. Heinlein: two classic novellas and two short stories with speculation on what makes us human. Gulf
in which the greatest superspy of them all is revealed as the leader of a league of supermen and women who can't decide on quite what to do
with the rest of us. The prequel to Heinlein's later New York Times
best seller, Friday
. Lost Legacy
in which it is proved that we are all members of that league of the superhuman-or would be, if we but had eyes to see.
Plus two great short stories: Two of the master's finest: one on the nature of being, the other on what it means to be a Man. The second story, "Jerry Was a Man," was adapted for the TV series Masters of Science Fiction
, and is now available on DVD.
