Praise for Robert A. Heinlein:
''He made footsteps big enough for a whole country to follow . . . We proceed down a path marked by his ideas. He showed us where the future is.'' --Tom Clancy
''The word that comes to mind for him is 'essential'. As a writer--eloquent, impassioned, technically innovative--he reshaped science fiction in a way that defined it for every writer who followed him . . . He was the most significant science fiction writer since H. G. Wells.'' --Robert Silverberg
