Stranger in a Strange Land

by Robert A. Heinlein
Release date: 1961
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction
Tags: hugo award

Hugo Award winner 1962, Prometheus Award 1987: Hall of Fame Award for Best Classic Libertarian SF Novel.

Note! When Robert A. Heinlein first wrote Stranger in a Strange Land, his editors at Putnam required him to drastically cut its original length, and to remove some scenes that might have been considered too shocking at the time. The early editions contain only 160 000 words, but later editions contain 220 000 words.

Epic, ambitious and entertaining, STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND caused controversy and uproar when it was first published.

Still topical and challenging today, the story of Valentine Michael Smith, the first man from Mars to visit Earth, is in the great tradition of stories that endure through the power of the author's imagination that stretches from Gulliver's Travels to 1984.
