What’s Your Favorite Robert A. Heinlein Novel, Vernor Vinge?

September 7, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

My favorite Heinlein novel is The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress; for some days after reading it, 22nd century cislunar-politics seemed more real than current geo-politics!

However, just thinking about the question provokes an avalanche of fondly remembered competitors, including:

  • Between Planets, the first book I ever read (and which seems even sharper now than I remember it from the early 1950s!)
  • The Star Beast
  • Double Star, graceful and short (and even more interesting now that I have some Patterson-insight about Heinlein’s time in politics).

Robert A. Heinlein: In Dialogue with His Century: Volume 1 (1907-1948): Learning Curve (978-0-7653-1960-9 / $29.99) will be available from Tor Books on August 17th 2010.
