Stranger in a Strange Land
Heinlein, Robert A.
A must-have deluxe hardcover edition of the most famous science-fiction novel of all timeâ€”part of a new collectible series of six Penguin Sci-Fi/Fantasy Classics
A human raised on Mars, Valentine Michael Smith has just arrived on planet Earth. Among his people for the first time, he struggles to understand the social mores and prejudices of human nature that are so alien to him, while his own â€œpsiâ€ powersâ€”among them telepathy, clairvoyance, telekenesis, and teleportationâ€”make him a type of messiah figure among humans. Stranger in a Strange Land grew from a cult favorite to a bestseller to a classic in a few short years. The story of the man from Mars who taught humankind grokking and water-sharingâ€”and loveâ€”it is Robert A. Heinleinâ€™s masterpiece.
