The online Heinlein Archives that became active in 2007 has some (most?) of the VE's previously unpublished content available in PDF form for a nominal fee. Naturally the Archives also includes a great deal not included in the VE, such as a longer Citizen of the Galaxy manuscript showing Heinlein's markups to bring it down to published length.

The Archive has the potential to be a great resource, but for me, the watermark makes most of the material unreadable. Perhaps some enterprising soul will remove the watermarks someday and republish the material in Kindle format.

The easiest and almost always least expensive place to get out of print hardbacks and paperbacks are used copies sold by Amazon resellers. You can virtually always get copies in excellent shape for much less than the cost of buying a new paperback. I've personally switched to Kindle editions (Kindle is Amazon's ereader for anyone who has been in a coma for the last three or four years LOL). I've gotten to the point where I detest having to read a book on paper anymore.

Possible Pirated Editions of Heinlein Books???

After reading account by Jerry Pournelle of what appears to be someone issuing print-on-demand books of various science fiction authors without authorization, I was able to find some of RAH's work issued by Hephaestus:







I gather these are compilations of wikipedia articles, but they give the impression that they are compilations of actual RAH stories. Either way, it's wrong.

Looks like Bill Higgins has this type of rip-off.

(President, Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America) is also tracking the issue of Wikipedia compilations. He mentions Fonte Wikipedia and Books LLC as questionable publishers.

The library foundation also owns several of the copyrights.
