A (hopefully somewhat comprehensive) list of Robert Heinlein books. I'm somewhat short on information right now, as my book collection is trapped in limbo after an ugly incident with an apartment, but I'll continue updating with names, synopses, and publishing dates.

But first, a list of all stories associating with his world-as-myth series: The Man Who Sold the Moon, Requiem, If This Goes On--, Misfit, Methuselah's Children, Time Enough For Love, The Rolling Stones, The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress, Stranger in a Srange Land, The Number of the Beast, and The Cat Who Walks Through Walls. The main proponents of this storyline are (I think) Time Enough For Love, Methuselah's Children, The Number of the Beast, The Cat Who Walks Through Walls, and To Sail Beyond the Sunset -- probably best read in that order. Not that it makes much difference to anything whatsoever, the whole concept of time being irrevocably fucked anyway. Different universes described in this series are represented by time line numbers and code names; the name of the code is based on the first man on the moon in each time line. Ours is time line three (code named "Armstrong").

The following are, at present, in alphabetical order. They will be eventually in (our) chronological order. They will also eventually all have descriptions.

The four hop in Zeb's flying car and have a grand ol' time crossing every imaginable frontier and lots more than you would ever think of. I think this one happens on time line four (I think), code named "Ballox O'Malley".

The main character, Maureen Johnson (Long), as she details her life's history in a bizarre, mostly non-chronological account. Very interesting, quite burlesque, stretching the confines of social tuning to previously unseen limits. This one takes place on time line two, codenamed "Leslie LeCroix".
