This beautiful, leatherbound edition brings together two of the most groundbreaking works from pioneering science-fiction author Robert Heinlein: Starship Troopers and Stranger in a Strange Land. In Starship Troopers, a recruit of the future goes through the toughest boot camp in the Universe-and into battle with the Terran Mobile Infantry against mankind's most alarming enemy. Stranger in a Strange Land presents the epic saga of an earthling, Valentine Michael Smith, born and educated on Mars, who arrives on our planet with psi powers-telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, telekinesis, teleportation, pyrolysis, and the ability to take control of the minds of others-and complete innocence regarding the mores of man. After his tutelage under a surrogate-father figure, Valentine begins his transformation into a messiah figure. His introduction into Earth society, together with his exceptional abilities, lead Valentine to become many things to many people: freak, scam artist, media commodity, searcher, free-love pioneer, neon evangelist, and martyr. Heinlein won his second Hugo award for this novel, sometimes called his earthly "divine comedy." Starship Troopers and Stranger in a Strange Land is one of Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions classics. Each volume features authoritative texts by the world's greatest authors in an exquisitely designed bonded-leather binding, with distinctive gilt edging and a silk-ribbon bookmark. Decorative, durable, and collectible, these books offer hours of pleasure to readers young and old and are an indispensable cornerstone for every home library.
