Founded in November 2013, Heinlein For Heroes – H4H – is a program for placing science fiction books, especially Heinlein books, into the hands of active military personnel—particularly those deployed—their families, and into the hands of veterans in veterans’ hospitals.
2019: For the 2018-19 reporting year 4,484 books were shipped
Total books shipped to date: 23,584
Organizations already exist who identify military commands and hospitals with a declared desire for various kinds of reading material. Science fiction is one category always in high demand.
What H4H does:
- Acquire copies of Heinlein novels and other science fiction novels
- Coordinate the sending of boxes of books to appropriate locations. They are sent only to places that have asked for them.
WE NEED BOOKS!
If you have new or almost-new copies of Heinlein books you would like to donate, we can take care of the rest.
The need for Heinlein paperbacks to send to our troops now for the holidays is urgent! Send your good condition Heinlein paperbacks to:
Heinlein For Heroes
2906 Alvarado Dr.
Bellingham, WA 98229
If you have some other SF titles in the mix, that is okay; we can send those, too, though our focus is on our namesake. We will also take cash, of course.
To send money: mail a check to
