    It All Started With Hswt

    Lucky Me -- I stumbled upon Have Spacesuit Will Travel when I was 12 years old.  Read everything I could get my hands on from that point forward.  RAH was at least partly responsible for my joining the Marine Corps (Starship Troopers / Glory Road) and later becoming an...

    My Spouse Introduced Me...

    My spouse introduced me to Heinlein's work back when we were just getting to know each other.  I've since been gobbling them down and after years have re-read many of them repeatedly. I've never been a huge fan of science fiction writing until Heinlein's stories were...

    My Father

    Anybody who knows the Heinlein canon will have read, or figured out, that he was utterly, untreatably infertile. Nearly every adult character is obsessed with having children; quite a few freeze their *****, or visit clinics of some kind. But his wife Ginny had one of his...

    Seems to Me It's More Than That!

    I'd love to wake up on Tertius. Rejuve, choice of sex and apparent age.  A society that is comfortable (at last!) with Polyandry, homosexuality, bisexuality... Where a woman's "No!" means no and transgression means death.  A society that has left Bronze Age...

    He Was A Unique Author

    I have several that truly enjoyed. I would have to say that my most favorite is "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress". Although "I Will Fear No Evil" comes in a tight second. Two more of his rather interesting books are "The Cat that could Walk Through Walls" and "Farnham's Freehold...
