ROBERT ANSON HEINLEIN (1907 1988) was born in Missouri. He served five years in the U.S. Navy, then attended graduate classes in mathematics and physics at UCLA, took a variety of jobs, and owned a silver mine before beginning to write science fiction in 1939. His novels have won the Hugo Award, and in 1975 he received the first Grand Master Award for lifetime achievement.From AudioFile:
Podkayne "Poddy" Fries and her younger genius brother, Clark, leave their home on Mars to take a trip on a "spaceliner" to visit Earth (via Venus), accompanied by their uncle. Narrating the excerpts from Poddy's diary, Emily Janice Card adopts the confident tone of a teenager who aspires to be the first woman starship captain. She talks about her brother with the condescending tone of a slightly older sister who feels the burden of looking out for a sibling who finds her superfluous. In the portions of the story told by Clark, Card smoothly delivers the attitude of one who bears the burden of being smarter that anyone else he knows. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
