PRESS RELEASE FROM THE VIRGINIA EDITION PUBLISHING COMPANY:
HOUSTON, October 22, 2013 – Beginning today all Virginia Edition sets purchased will also receive a $110 donation of Heinlein books to the Heinlein For Heroes (H4H) program on the purchaser’s behalf.
H4H is a military appreciation program. Its goal is to place Heinlein’s books, and other science fiction titles, into the hands of active military personnel, particularly those deployed, as well as in the hands of veterans in veterans’ hospitals.
Science fiction is one category always in high demand with these heroes. H4H works with military organizations that have requested various kinds of reading material for their military members.
Virginia Edition purchasers may also elect to donate the Heinlein books to their local school or library in lieu of H4H.
Individuals interested in participating in H4H can also donate new or almost-new copies of Heinlein books or other science fiction titles.
The Virginia Edition Collection is the authoritative texts for all of Robert Heinlein’s published fiction and non-fiction in 46 leather-bound volumes. The text for the collection was 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 his wife Virginia Heinlein after her husband’s passing.
