I have read and loved Heinlein's books since the 50's. His work has been a major force in shaping my own personal philosopy. It is rare that I do not think of something from a Heinlein book every day.

I've been a Heinlein reader since the 60's. I am going back to school now and just got a new computer w/internet access and this is one of the 1st sites I checked. I am doing a research paper on the politics of Heinlein.

I'm a fairly recent Heinlein reader. I just started cause my father suggested, but i love him now. I've read Stranger in a Strange Land, and Starship Troopers, and am in the middle of I Fear No Evil. I'm now doing a term paper on him, and if anyone has any criticisms to send me, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanx!

I first read Starship Troopers because I heard it was going to be a movie, but I didn't like it that much. I went on to read Tunnel in the Sky and it's one of the best books I've ever read! I've also read, Have Space Suit-Will Travel, Citizen of the Galaxy, and a book containing many of his short works including Requiem.

No-one's books have made me sit and think as those of RAH.
For the true fans out there I can absolutely advise the Avalon hill boardgame "Starship Troopers" from 1976. It gives you the opportunity to fight all the major battles from the novel.

First of all - great site!
Second, I would like to add my two cents to what appears to be an overdue tribute to a great man who's influence on my life is without description. I cannot give this Rbt. Heinlein enough credit for helping develop my curiosity and attitutudes towards learning, and to a lesser degree, towards religion.

I'm desperately looking for Heinlein help. I want to incorporate some text from Glory Road, specifically the classifieds newspaper ad that hooks the hero and gets the story rolling, in an art project. Trouble is, it needs to be done by tomorrow (end of the semester) and I've not got a copy of the novel. Might you have it around and be willing to send me the wording of the ad? I'd 'preciate it mightily. Thanks,

My dad introduced me to Robert A. Heinlein when I was only nine years old, basically forcine me to read The Moon is a Harsh Mistress.. only I fell in love with the books and started reading all of them I could. From there on in I have been a dedicated fan and have writting many pieces on why RAH is god. I've also bugged my friends to death trying to get them to read him... but... I'm still working on it.

Men are not Potatoes. I've no problem with the costumes in the movie. The world's finest armys are after the Prussian model (even the IDF) perfectly resomable, as for the rest of the movie, it BITES. Have you ever felt like a gem has been stolin from your intellectual jewl box? Maybe we could get Mr. Fur Hoof'in to apologize? Pernell was right: "The America Hienlien knew and loved is gone."
But we still have his writing, SF, nonfiction, and thou only knowest what else.
I have been bouncing and groking most of my life. " Uncle Bob" must have been the greatest force acting on my character formation. My thanks to him, his house, and to you for the space.

In sixth grade I found Starship Troopers in my school library after the school's librarian recomended Heinlein's books to me. I liked it so much I went on to read Stranger in a Strange Land, Farmer in the Sky, Have Space Suit-Will Travel, Starman Jones, Time For the Stars, Citizen of the Galaxy and The Moon is a Harsh Mistress. By the end of sixth grade I had read every one of his books in the school library. I'm in 10th grade now, and I've reread all of them many times, and I'm going to see Starship Troopers [the movie] for the third time next weekend. I'm going to set up some sort of tribute on my website, but until then...
On the bounce soldier!

My first Heinlein book was "Stranger in a Strange Land". A wonderful English teacher had us read it and write a paper on it's most important theme, I chose "Grok". She helped me learn my true passion, writing. It changed and solidified my views on life and religion. It affected how I loved and decided to live my life. I have devoured every book by RAH since, unable to get enough. Thank you Robert. We all miss you.

A fan since I read Starship Troopers at age 11. Now much older and hopefully much wiser, I have introduced my son (now 11) to RAH. I hope that he continues to influence young and old alike.. much as he did with myself and those that I call friends.
He is missed.

Great page! I miss RAH so much, that reading your e-mail about him was almost as much fun as reading his books. I have been a voracious SF reader for over forty years and still get almost all my reading material from flea markets and garage sales. I never could afford to buy new books, as I go through 150-200 a year. But starting around the late sixties I bought everything I could find as soon as it came out. RAH is the only author I ever spent full price for, and I probably would have paid hardback price if that was all that was available. Has anyone out there read a book by (I think) Alexei Panshin, titled "rite of passage" , I read this about 25 years ago and still think it was a RAH pseudonym. I have never seen any other books by this author. If you're a heinlein fan you've got to check this out.

I first stumbled upon JOB in 86. I have literaly read it over 100 times, (actually wore the cover off of my poor ol' paperback). Went to purchase a new copy in hardback and fainted at the suggested price of over $80.00 to order it through a major mall bookstore. Looked all over the local area and found a used book store with 2 first editions in hb for only $10.00. Next I began tracking other first editions. I have only read Stranger..., about 40-50 times, while this may seem excessive, I tend to pick up something new/different each time I read them. I have neither read nor seen ST yet, but plan to see it soon and then read the novel to judge the movie.
This site is terrific, and has provided me with a wealth of information about RAH. My goal is to locate as many first editions of his works as I can to pass on to my two children. Now that my son is 5, I will probably begin reading the juvs to him soon. I only hope that my kids will enjoy The Master as much as I do.

IM 48 YEARS OLD IVE READ RAH BOOKS SINCE I WAS 14. I KNOW HIS DEATH LEFT ME FEELING AS IF PART OF ME WAS GONE. I READ ST AT LEAST 5 TIMES. IT WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITE BOOKS. TIME ENOUGH FOR LOVE WAS PROBABLY MY FAVORITE THOUGH. I KNOW I WAS SHOCKED BY IT A LITTLE AT FIRST. BUT IVE READ IT 4 TIMES AT DIFFERENT TIMES IN MY LIFE AND IT GOT BETTER EVERY TIME. IT HAS A TIMELES STORY ABOUT A MAN AND HIS LIFE AND HIS QUEST FOR FREEDOM. STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND HAS A LOT TO TEACH US ABOUT INTERACTIONS BETWEEN PEOPLE AND TAKING THEM AS THEY ARE, IT RANKS UP THERE AS ONE OF HIS BEST. HE WAS WRITING THIS STUFF BEFORE ANY ONE GREW THEIR HAIR AND SAID PEACE BROTHER. HE TRULY WAS A MASTER AND VERY AHEAD OF HIS TIME. EVEN HIS CHILD BOOKS HAVE A LOT TO TEACH US, AT THE VERY LEAST YOU MAY READ THEM AND RELAX AND LET THEM TAKE THEM TO A PLACE LONG AGO AND FAR AWAY. YOUR CHILHOOD. ALL IN ALL WE LOST SOMETHING WHEN HE DIED THAT WE WILL NEVER HAVE AGAIN. TO ME HE WAS LIKE A FAVORITE RELATIVE YOU WOULD SEE AT THE HOLIDAYS. I KNEW HIM THROUGH HIS BOOKS PERHAPS THROUGH HIS MIND. I NEVER MET HIM I WISH I COULD HAVE. I COUL SAY MUCH MORE BUT THATS ENOUGH.

I am 46 and have been reading Heinlein for 35 years + or -. He may not have "changed my life" but his novels did more to shape my character and enable me to find a moral compass than all the public education I received.
Does any one remember "The Star Beast"? Movie material if I ever saw it. Speaking of which I dragged my wife to the premiere of ST on Nov 7. I was terrified of another butcher job but ended up if not pleased at least content that they tried.The f/x are good indeed and there is a lot of book material included. The lashing scene may make you rethink your views on punishment.Considering how each of us has a unique vision or script of this novel in his head that no director will ever match this movie is close on several points. Go see it and maybe they will make another; Glory Road?,Double Star?, Podkayne of Mars? Farnhams Freehold? It staggers the imagination. Thanks and Peace.

I really enjoyed RAH's books when I was in High School, but I never managed to read Starship Troopers until recently.
I have to say that after spending 7 years in the US Navy myself, the story hits the military experience, especially boot camp, right on.
I really don't see how, even in the 50's and 60's, how the form of government shown in the book makes a bit of difference. To a real soldier, it doesn't matter what his country's policies are, he or she will defend it just the same. In the words of John Wayne " My country, right or wrong."

RAH was my favorite author while growing up in the 50's and 60's. Starship Troopers was my favorite RAH book (where are the power suits in the movie?), but I also enjoyed many others, especially Farnham's Freehold. He was perhaps the greatest influence in my survivalist attitude. He taught, knowingly or not, about the value of mental and physical preparation; and about the deviousness of man's authority. I likely don't agree with him on everything, but I think he laid the foundation for many of us.

I accidentally started reading Stranger in a Strange land when board in an Astrology book store about 25 years ago. It was not only a great book but was my transion from childrens stories and literature. I was about 11 or so but I found the links to other older great works and the world of adult literature opened to me. I will always be greatful.

The first RAH I ever read was "The Rolling Stones".I was 11 or so. At 40 I still find the Master's writings to be not only entertaining but uplifting. If there was only "Time Enough For Love"...
Somehow | think that I am dreading the release of "Starship Troopers". The real themes of the book don't lend themselves to a "blockbuster flick". Will they forget Birdie and the 18th decoration (postumous) that his "pips" returned? Or will we get to see the changes experienced by Johnnie's father? Oh well, we can only hope.

I'll bet you're getting a lot of hits lately with the impending release of STARSHIP TROOPERS. I'm a long-time Heinlein fan; encountered Have Space Suit - Will Travel in 1971 and have read everthing I know of that he published.
From the pre-release publicity, my guess is that Troopers will be the best SF movie ever which totally screwed up everthing which made the novel meaningful and memorable--
> Most importantly, the society of the books was NOT fascist (read it in the light of RAH's comments in Expanded Universe, and Spider Robinson's excellent commentary, "Rah, Rah, R.A.H." most recently reprinted in the volume of Heinlein accolades, Requiem). My Webster's defines fascism as "a system of government characterized by rigid one-party dictatorship, forcible suppression of the opposition, the retention of private ownership of the means of production under centralized government control, belligerent nationalism and racism, glorification of war, etc." This all seems true of the movie. In the book: only retired civil servants (NOT just military veterans) become citizens and can vote (i.e. you have to pay your dues somehow), but no discussion is provided regarding parties within the citizenry. In Expanded Universe, Heinlein states (amidst comments like "no one hesitates to comment on veteran schoolteachers and firemen") he suggests that the priorities of such groups would dominate government debate over the military. (However, non citizens are required to pay taxes). The economy is unregulated, not government controlled. There is no evidence of social racism or religious prejudice. And there is no glorification of war. There is very definite punishment for the traditional capital crimes -- the traditional punishment, hanging. (Lesser crimes are managed by flogging; I'll leave it to the reader to decide whether 10 lashes and go home is a harsher punishment than a year in prison.) The Sargent who processes Juan, Carl, and Carmen HAS lost his legs -- and later shows up wearing prosthetics, telling Juan that he takes them off on the job to help make sure that people signing up know that this is not a game. Also, these three were his only applicants ALL DAY, not the huge crowd shown swearing the oath.
> Next to that, the decision NOT to use the battlesuits, the most memorable image of the book, in the movie seems almost insignificant.
> Although the Navy is integrated, Heinlein follows the traditional view that "grunt" work is for men. Although I'm not as hyped on the subject of women in the infantry as some of my best friends, it is a clear difference.
Anyhow, I wanted to vent my "minor" spleen on an audience interested in the movie and in the author -- and encourage those of you who've followed the movie links to this site to read Heinlein's work if you haven't, starting with Starship Troopers. Enjoy the movie, too -- while it's different than the book, it looks like it will be great.

I truly enjoy the juvenile books. I never could get into the novels after "Stranger in a Strange Land" However, since my other passionate "reads" are EE Smith, Mack Reynolds, and Lester Del Rey, I guess my predication is toward the Space Opera. I re-read Glory Road once a year whether I need to or not, and can find myself thumbing through my library at almost any time, seeking a Heinlien to spend a few hours lost in space.

Robert Heinlein was the best. I have not seen
"Starship Troopers" but I pray they have not butchered it as they did "The Puppet Masters"
I guess the only way to find out is to go see it,
but it's like opening a present from a distant relative, you don't know what it is but you're
pretty sure you won't like it.

I enjoyed the dedication showed in setting up a site for Mr. Heinlein. I've been a fan of his since reading Starship Troopers (and all the juveniles) at the age of 10. Let's make sure that young people don't miss the chance to enjoy his works. Don't forget Waldo and Magic, as well as Oscar!

My first RAH book was "Time Enough for Love".
I fell in love with the Long Family. Since then
I've read everything from RAH that I could get my
hands on. I'm trying to introduce my kids to RAH.
They can't wait to see the movie, and when I told them that I had that book, they got even more excited.

Hi, this is Alice. (not quite wonderland around here yet, but I am working on it!) I wish I could have met the man who's writing changed ME! After reading RAH's books I found myself looking at life differnetly - and I am a much happier and accepting person. Wish I could have met him!

When I was fourteen, my older sister gave me her copy of Red Planet, saying that it was too "juvenile" for her tastes. I loved it, and I've been a big Robert Heinlein fan ever since. Now, with the new movie forthcoming, I'm rereading Starship Troopers for the first time in twenty-three years. I hope the film will do the book justice.

The first RAH book I read was Red Planet and sinxe then I´m hooked. Although most of the RAH books and novels I´m reading are printed in swedish (as you probably have guessed, I´m from Sweden), I am now starting to reread them in english and that really open up new dimensions.

The first science fiction book I remember reading was S is for Space (Bradbury) when I was in 4th grade (1967? or thereabouts). I don't remember the first Heinlein I read. What I do remember is being in 7th grade, heading for the fiction section, looking for "HEI" on the spine and grabbing whatever Heinlein I hadn't read yet. I still search, hoping, hoping I missed one. But I don't think I have. I reread them on a regular basis.
I'm turning my friend's 11 year old on to RAH now. His mother wanted him to read Lord of the Flies as a book about teens setting up their own government. I recommended Tunnel in the Sky instead. I look forward to my own boys being old enough to read him.

The first book I ever read was Farmer in the sky by RAH. Since then I have been hooked. It's great to see I'm not the only one.

I am a long term RAH fan. The first novel I ever remember reading was one of his juvinels. My father first turned me on to his novels and I am waiting for the day that I can introduce Mr Heinlein and Lazarus to my children. I would enjoy any corespondence on RAH or any of his works.

I am a great fan of RAH especially his books concerning Lazarus Long (aka W W Smith etc.)

I have been a RAH fan since junior high school in the late 60's. I am glad that the movie industry is starting see the same. I was a little disapointed in the Puppet Masters. Maybe they will do better in the future.

I'd like each visitor to give his or her commentaries on the page. I'd like if he/she'd share his/her thoughts or feelings on RAH with his fandom.
I actually do hope this tool will fulfill a useful function.
