Robert A. Heinlein was the greatest science fiction writer who ever lived. His novels have been translated into every literate language on the globe, with over 25 million Heinlein books in print in this country alone. His Hugo-winning novel Starship Troopers was the basis for the recent hit movie. In a career spanning half a century, he wrote over forty books, and four of his novels won Hugo Awards, an unequalled record. He has repeatedly topped polls of science fiction readers for "best writer" and "favorite writer." To three generations of readers, Heinlein is science fiction.Review:
"Not only America's premier writer of speculative fiction, but the greatest writer of such fiction in the world."
"There is no other writer whose work has exhilarated me as often and to such an extent as Heinlein."
"Robert Heinlein is America's acknowledged master of science fiction."
"Heinlein knows more about blending provocative scientific thinking with strong human stories than any dozen other contemporary science fiction writers."
"One of the grand masters of science fiction."
