‘The best of his many books and the best in the genre’Washington Post
Folio’s Stranger in a Strange Land, which features the full, uncut version of Heinlein’s text, is also the first ever illustrated edition. Artist Donato Giancola has worked on a number of celebrated science-fiction and fantasy projects, and has himself won the Hugo Award for Best Professional Artist three times, making him the perfect choice to capture the story of the truly otherworldly Valentine Michael Smith. For this special edition, Giancola has created nine fantastical illustrations suffused with dreamlike colour, and an eerily beautiful slipcase design that depicts Smith and his followers floating together in a strange, watery landscape. As well as a handsome binding, Stranger in a Strange Land features printed endpapers, making this – alongside the Folio edition of Heinlein’s Starship Troopers – an essential addition to any science-fiction collection.
