Rah, Rah, RAH(einlein)!

Years after his passing, Robert A. Heinlein continues to stir the pot. Here, Andrew Liptak takes a look at one of Heinlein's most controversial (and popular) novels, Starship Troopers. Patrick McCray looks at Heinlein's "harsh politics" (they evolved over his life, but does anybody end up where they start?). Brian Doherty looks at libertarianism and Heinlein.

Every few years somebody gets up on the soapbox and declares that Heinlein is dead and we ought to move on. Looks like he ain't dead yet.

Addendum: Spider Robinson's classic tribute. Worth reading again.

  1. Yeah, I think (if anyone reads it) I will take some heat when I tackle a couple of Heinlein's books for my new column
