I don't know about the three Heinlein books Carrie has, but the copy of
Podkayne of Mars which is in the collection contains two different endings:
the original one that Heinlein wrote and the one that his editor made him
substitute.  The editor thought people wouldn't like the original ending
because it was tragic. This is obviously not the original book, but an
edition printed later in his career.

Good heavens.  I never knew that.  You mean the story lines were altered?
