The Moon is a Harsh Mistress is a 1966 novel by Robert A. Heinlein, about a lunar colony's revolt against rule from Earth. The novel is respected for its credible presentation of a comprehensively imagined future human society on both the Earth and the moon.

Originally serialized in Worlds of If (December 1965, January, February, March, April 1966), many fans consider it to be the last great novel Heinlein wrote.

It spawned many fannish catchphrases, among them “TANSTAAFL,” and may have encouraged fan interest in polyamory.
