The Man Who Sold the Moon is the title of a 1950 collection of science fiction short stories by Robert A. Heinlein.

The stories, part of Heinlein's Future History series, appear in the first edition as follows:

Early paperback printings omitted "Life-Line" and "Blowups Happen", as well as Campbell's introduction.


Boucher and McComas praised the 1950 edition as Heinlein "at his superlative best.".[1] In his "Books" column for F&SF, Damon Knight selected The Man Who Sold the Moon as one of the 10 best sf books of the 1950s.[2] P. Schuyler Miller said that "Heinlein is a master of concealed technology. . . . no other writer [has] worked out the scientific minutiae of his settings so fully or so unobtrusively," praising as well Heinlein's skill at crafting "the human engineering details of each situation."[3]
