We are pleased to announce Libby Sharpe as the winner of our first ‘Virginia Edition’ raffle giveaway! Libby was announced at the end of our 2017 Annual Meeting held yesterday, September 10, 2017. The contest was open to all Regular and Lifetime Members. Members who had joined for the first time within our last fiscal year were given two chances to win.
The ‘Virginia Edition’ set is described as:
“Containing authoritative texts for all of Robert Heinlein’s published fiction and non-fiction, with text taken from the last volume in which Heinlein had a hand in the preparation, or those works restored to their intended state in publications directly overseen by Virginia Heinlein after her husband’s passing.
Also included are 450,000 words of newly selected correspondence, most never before published. Each volume is introduced by the late Heinlein scholar and biography author, William H. Patterson, Jr., detailing the circumstances under which the work was written. Each Virginia Edition set is bound in leather and printed on buffered, acid-free paper that meets all US archival standards. Only 2,000 sets were produced and each volume of the set is hand-numbered. Virginia Edition owners also receive unlimited access to the online Heinlein Archives which offers all of Heinlein’s documents, manuscripts, correspondence, photographs, and personal materials in digital form.”
