Robert A. Heinlein where to find good ebook formats

Hi, I'd like to introduce my 14 year old to Robert Heinlein's stories. Can anyone recommend good ebook editions, formats? Our space is currently limited, so they need to be readable on the computer. Thank you.

Baen has managed to get rights to some of Heinleins works, especially some of the YA stories:

Between Planets
Farmer in the Sky
The Green Hills of Earth/The Menace from Earth
The Rolling Stones

There are some other more adult Heinleins available there too.

Amazon has several of his books, by downloading the Kindle4pc app (free) they can be read on the computer, no device needed.

3. Red Planet, 1949
4. Farmer in the Sky, 1950
5. Between Planets, 1951
6. The Rolling Stones aka Space Family Stone, 1952
7. Starman Jones, 1953

9. Tunnel in the Sky, 1955
10. Time for the Stars, 1956
11. Citizen of the Galaxy, 1957

I don't know that they or any of his work is available in ebook form. I'd love to find "Time Enough for Love"

Also, check your local library for ebooks availability.

I've seen Stranger in a Strange Land, Podkane of Mars, on Overdrive.

I was really surprised when I ran across the larger Heinlein selection on Baen a while back...I immediately snatched them all up just-in-case, It's sure nice to have them to re-read from my kidlet days...Heinlein and Asimov were the first SF authors I read, and have never stopped in, well, more decades than I wanna fess up to...

I'm hoping that Baen will soon release my favourite Heinlein, "Space Cadet". It's not currently available as a legal eBook anywhere, alas.

Hi

Fictionwise (http://www.fictionwise.com) has 7 of Heinlein’s books in several formats, just access the URL and search by “Heinlein in the author option (top left of the page).

Best regards,

Thank you, everyone! This should keep him busy for awhile.

If I had a hardbook library, I would have Heinlein and Dick Francis and Jane Austen and....

but I don't have a room and bookshelves big enough!
