Set in Robert A. Heinlein’s Future History universe, REVOLT IN 2100 includes “IF THIS GOES ON—”, his novella “Coventry” and story “Misfit”, his Future History charts, “Future History Letter Essay” and the author’s “Concerning Stories Never Written” Postscript. “IF THIS GOES ON—” The Second American Revolution unfolds in the course of this novel where John Lyle, West Point graduate and now a guard at the Prophet’s stronghold, comes to realize that “secrecy is the keystone of all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy . . . censorship.” After he joins an underground movement to overthrow the U.S. government, John learns much along the way about courage, subversion -- (a fellow conspirator tells him, “There is magic in words, black magic—if you know how to invoke it”) – and sacrifice. “Coventry’ takes place years after America’s Second Revolution and posits a benevolent but strongly monitored new society, with its own rules and surveillance arm. “Misfit” concerns a young genius who averts disaster in a mission to bring a small asteroid closer to Earth. The author’s essay about Future History stories he won’t write provides an entertaining look at Heinlein’s richly imagined world. "There is no other writer whose work has exhilarated me as often and to such an extent as Heinlein." - Dean Koontz "One of the most influential writers in American Literature." - The New York Times Book Review "Heinlein wears imagination as though it were his private suit of clothes." - The New York Times "Heinlein… has the ability to see technologies just around the bend. That, combined with his outstanding skill as a writer and engineer-inventor, produces books that are often years ahead of their time." - The Philadelphia Inquirer "Not only America's premier writer of speculative fiction, but the greatest writer of such fiction in the world." - Stephen King "One of the grand masters of science fiction." - The Wall Street Journal Robert A. Heinlein (1907-1988), often called the Science Fiction Grand Master, was the author of such ground-breaking novels as STARSHIP TROOPERS, RED PLANET, STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND and THE MOON IS A HARSH MISTRESS. He is generally considered the greatest and most influential science fiction writer of the twentieth century. In addition to being a bestselling author, Heinlein's novels won 4 Hugo awards, 3 "retro Hugo" awards, and the first "Grand Master Award" from the Science Fiction Writers of America.
