    More Information:

    The Moon is a Harsh Mistress was originally serialized in the World of If magazine. It won Heinlein his fourth Hugo Award in 1967. "Leaders of the Moon colony declare independence from Earth, making it stick with the aid of sentient computer 'Mike.' The parallels with American revolution are obvious and seem intended. Stock Heinlein characters; fast adventure narrative. Neospace opera" (Barron).

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
