Heinlein Centennial

Heinlein would be mad as hell that he can’t be there.

3 Feedbacks on "Heinlein Centennial"


An American hero, a great man, and a great author. I began reading his books when I was ten years old, and I still do thirty years later.

The beauty of his young adults books is that they don’t talk down to their readers. I just re-read “Have Spacesuit Will Travel”. While some of the science is dated, the writing certainly isn’t.

Sounds like the party of the century, health and fortune allowing….

Barbara VanTilburg

If you’ve never read The door into summer, don’t miss it. It’s my favorite book by Robert Heinlein.

Ed Rom

I’m not sure how old I was when I first read anything by Heinlein, but it wasn’t very. His stuff reads as well now in my middle age as it did when my years were numbered in single digits; I understand it better now, and like it all the more because of that.

I don’t relish the thought of Kansas City in July (I hate hot weather), but how could I forgive myself if I missed the Heinlein Centennial?
