The Ensign's Prize Court
 

As detailed in the June 2007 Newsletter Ginny Heinlein discovered a publisher selling illegal copies of some of Robert A. Heinlein's best known works on the internet. Through perseverance and at no small cost to herself, she fought the pirates and won. A consent decree awarded her the publisher's entire stock of the books in question, which she donated to The Society for use in fund raising.

Here is your chance to help The Society's coffers, and add some rare editions to your collection. For example, the only known hard bound edition of The Notebooks of Lazarus Long with the lettering by D.F.Vassallo.

Price for the set is currently $1000. To order, email chairman@heinleinsociety.org or write:
