Robert A. Heinlein: In Dialogue with His Century

Space Cadets and Starship Troopers

Robert A. Heinlein by William H. Patterson, Jr.By Stacy Hague-Hill, Your Captain for this Journey

Sometimes, a topic comes along that’s just too big for one article.

In August, Tor will be releasing an all-new, first-ever authorized biography of a towering figure in the history of the genre: Robert A. Heinlein.

So, as our own little celebration of the man and his works, we thought it would be fun to find out just how much of an impact Heinlein’s stories and novels had on a number of our—and your—favorite sf writers. We asked them a simple question—what’s your favorite Heinlein novel?

We’ll be posting their answers once a week as we build toward publication of the biography, and I hope all of you will jump in and let us know if you have any favorites, too.

But enough about us. What’s your favorite Robert A. Heinlein novel, David Brin?
