Featuring "All You Zombies—," the basis for the movie PredestinationThis collection from Grand Master Robert A. Heinlein includes five short stories sure to please science fiction fans everywhere. The title story tells the tale of a young man who meets a time-traveling bartender whose origins—and relation to the young man—are more complex and stranger than the Ouroboros ring on the barkeep's finger.

Lastly, in "—And He Built a Crooked House," a clever architect designs a house in the shape of the shadow of a tesseract, but it collapses through the fourth dimension when an earthquake shakes it into a more stable form.
