The past through tomorrow. A Berkley Book, published by arrangement with G. P. Putnam's Sons. Future History is Campbell’s phrase, not Heinlein’s, and the author has sometimes been mildly embarrassed by it. This connected series of stories does not pretend to be prophetic. Yet it is apparent that some of Heinlein’s fictional forecasts have already come true-not literally but symbolically.

Although slightly dated, Heinlein writes here as an engineer (which he was by training) confronting the challenges of modern times. He explores possible solutions to the modern hurdles of energy, transportation, overcrowding and the subsequent need to become an interplanetary species. As I read through this book, the name that kept popping up in my head was Elon Musk. I wonder if Elon, as a young man in South Africa, read these stories? There are many Elon type scenarios played out here: a conveyer type solar powered transportation system (the Boring Company and the Hyper Loop) and the first efforts at colonizing another planet (SpaceEx) and the importance of renewable energy (Tesla/SolarCity). In one of the stories here, the Man Who Sold the Moon, a billionaire funds a private company to begin colonizing the moon, funded with private equity and the underwriting of his other renewable energy and transportation companies. Sound familiar? The similarities are uncanny.......

An awesome peek into Americana during the space race. There was a boundless optimism that we'd be past the whole "flying car" thing and we'd have construction crews building housing tunnels in the moon by the 1980s.

This is a collection of Heinlein's short stories covering 1939 through 1962, with most of the stories written in the 1940s. The theme generally tends to be that of technology (primarily: space travel) being a given, and how society forms around it. For example, one story ("It's Great To Be Back") covers a married couple having lived on ("in") the Moon for several years emigrating to the Earth, only to discover that the conditions are awful, and none of the Earth-natives are relatable any more. The tech rarely IS the story, which is great story-telling!

Some stories didn't age as well as others (sentient life on Mars and Venus) but others require almost no mental flip at all. Important edition note: the 1967 edition with the blue striations on the cover is complete, while the two later printings in 1975 and 1986 had dropped the short story "Universe". Consider getting the original print if you can.

A great collection of stories. I love the concept of this being a fictional prediction of a possible future written in the 1940's and 50's. Heinlein was the master storyteller of his era. the stories are about real people in day to day situations. His heroes are very real and the villains are not the plastic horrible caricatures found in today's fiction. This would be a great first book for the young reader of today.

A classic primer for Science Fiction fans as well as socio-political students. Much of what was "foreseen" and "predicted" here in has come to pass.

Robert Heinlein is not as popular as he once was; certainly, most of his "future history" story collections are not readily available. But if you're curious to see what all the buzz was about Mr. Heinlein, and more particularly what a great influence he had on the science fiction field, you should seek out this massive collection of all of these stories, THE PAST THROUGH TOMORROW.

This book is mainly important as a "primary sourcer", to see how Heinlein developed his later non-nonsense, brusque (and very often, later, highly-opinionated) writing style - as evidenced in such stories as
the delightfully timely - and cynical - "The Man Who Sold the Moon" and the stirring "The Green Hills of Earth." All of his "Future History" stories are included, including the novel METHUSELAH'S CHILDREN.

This book is a must for any "serious" sci fi collector.

Heinlein's writing got me back into reading last year. I got this book after having read through four of his full novels, and I was just as impressed. The stories are entertaining and I love the way that they are all incorporated into the same universe.

Arrived early and was better then expected.
Like the other Heinlen short stories I have purchases here, I bought the to catch up on things I have never read by him. I have read most of his novels, this book, I can read in bits and pieces as time allows. I look forward to its enjoyment with great expectations.
