The Menace From Earth is a collection of science fiction short stories by American writer Robert A. Heinlein. It was published by The Gnome Press in 1959 in an edition of 5,000 copies.



Floyd C. Gale of Galaxy Science Fiction rated the collection 4.5 stars out of five. He said "The trouble with Heinlein is that once he explores a situation, not much is left to be said. His prototypes are up-to-the-minute masterworks", citing "By His Bootstraps" and the temporal paradox genre as an example.[1]
