Heinlein, Science Fiction, Space Travel, Utopia and More
Back in time, before the new year, Patrick Hayden made a brief mention of a book review including a short quote from the review.
And that post took on a life of its own with the discussion, now 161 comments, still ongoing.
Hey, if the title subjects got you this far you will want to spend the time (and it will be more then a few minutes) reading that comment thread. As Eric Burns says:
The discussion is fascinating because of the sheer plethora of authorities contributing to it. Scientists, futurists, fans, literary critics -- there's something of everything in it, and the content of the discussion is unusually high for the web.Oh yes, the review was of Heinlein's first novel, unpublished until now, For Us, The Living.
Full disclosure: I have not read it yet.
