A Boost for Heinlein For Heroes

A great THANK YOU to the Heinlein Prize Trust and their Board of Trustees for voting to increase support of the Heinlein Society's Heinlein For Heroes program! The Heinlein Prize Trust has offered to pay the mailing costs for our H4H program to distribute Heinlein and other science fiction books to military members, veterans, and their families. With over 3000 books already sent, this will help H4H continue to send out books. LEARN HOW YOU CAN HELP>>>

The Heinlein Prize Trust is also sending out additional Heinlein books to veterans' hospitals and clinics via the H4H program. Thank you, everyone, for supporting this program to Pay It Forward!

In Publishing News...

We were thrilled first by the release of the graphic novel of Heinlein's Citizen of the Galaxy, and even more thrilled to hear the first edition sold out! Congratulations to Eric, Rob, and all the rest at the Virginia Edition Publishing Company on a job very well done.



The Heinlein Society has made great strides this year in forwarding our goal and mission of Paying It Forward. We still, and always, need your help and support. Even more importantly, we need your membership and participation. Renew your own membership, and encourage your friends to join. We're running a tight ship, with everything we take in going right back out to programs like Heinlein For Heroes, the extremely successful Blood Drives, and the expanding Scholarship Program. Our continued success depends on YOU!

The Heinlein Prize Trust is not officially affiliated with the Heinlein Society... except your humble newsletter editor writes for both.
