Reviews of Man Who Sold the Moon, the (1950)
Review by rootbeer (2003-03-10)
The Man Who Sold the Moon kicks off Heinlein's Future History series with a bang. This collection of speculative science fiction is typical excellent Heinlein, getting his political message across without interfering with the story he's telling. From the highly optimistic The Man Who Sold the Moon to the cautious warning of Blowups Happen, I enjoyed every story in this collection. A great read for anyone interested in finding out what the space program and nuclear power industry looked like from a time before they were commonplace.
