BETWEEN PLANETS by Robert A. Heinlein


by Robert A. Heinlein

Pub Date: Oct. 1st, 1951
ISBN: 1439133212
Publisher: Scribner

Another rocket rodeo by one of the foremost science-fiction writers of today-this one superior in treatment and inventiveness to last year's Farmer in the Sky Don Harvey, residing on earth, but a citizen of an Interplanetary Federation, born in a space ship between planets, finds himself in some difficulties when the citizens of the planet Venus revolt against the dictator tactics of the Federation. Caught in the midst of a revolution, Don discovers that he has been used as a messenger to the forces on Venus, and the secret he carries wins the war for Venus. Shivers and solemn moments, lightened by some diverting Venerians, including a gentlemanly scientist-dragon, Sir Isaac Newton.
