Octavo, cloth. First edition. Parasitic slug "masters" from outer space "attach themselves to human hosts and control their every thought and action . Speaking through a host, a master offers mankind a life of contentment, peace, and security of surrender, and the offer appears genuine . [The novel] allegorizes modern anxiety about the preservation of freedom . Heinlein anticipates that moment when a man must make the fateful choice between security and freedom." - Berger, Science Fiction and the New Dark Age, p. 106. "Fast-moving tale of paranoid (anti-Communist?) fears run wild. Well handled, a classic of it type." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 291. Filmed in 1994 with Donald Sutherland. Anatomy of Wonder (1987) 3-205. Pringle, Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels 4. Survey of Science Fiction Literature IV, pp. 1730-34.
