    Question Can't find a Heinlein

    I have been looking for his story Universe. Does anyone know whether it has been published since it's original pulp appearance?

    Please no spoilers.

    Thanks!

    It's in a newly published collection called "Off The Main Sequence: The Other Science Fiction Stories Of Robert A. Heinlein":

    http://www.heinleinsociety.org/news/OffSeq.html (link has no spoilers, just a list of stories in this volume)

    Available from Amazon if you can't find a copy anywhere else.

    There are a few stories in that volume that I don't think I've read yet... Do a google search and now I have to go buy a book. LOL

    Done. I just got on eBay and ordered a copy. LOL

    Nothing like a hard core Heinlein fan.

    Universe also appears together with Common Sense as the fixup novella Orphans of the Sky:

    I've read this novella, and the only 2 things I can say on it's behalf, is that it is good natured,and it's about a 150 pages long. Pretty light weight stuff. Two headed mutants-that sort of thing:

    I got my copy and have started on it. I had never read "Destination Moon" before so that one was a treat, and there are a few others.

    They say a die hard Heinlein fan would read his laundry list if we could find it. No doubt.
