Robert Heinlein (1907-1988)
Robert Heinlein, Author, God Humor, Airplane, God Manners, Science Fiction, Writers, Novels, Donated Giancola
If you were a teenager in the years between 1950 and 1960, Robert A. Heinlein was inescapable, a prolific author who wrote excellent science fiction novels with teenage heroes... until his publisher rejected STARSHIP TROOPERS, and he returned to mainstream science fiction. A lot of his "juvenile" fiction turned on unusual situations soundly based on physics, as for example the discussion of orbital spacewalking in SPACE CADET. In most ways he was an admirable writer.
Author of 32 novels and over 50 short stories. Robert Heinlein's fantastic stories were a staple of my formative years. His stories also influenced out later outlook on life like his quote from Glory Road "Logic is a feeble reed, friend. "Logic" proved that airplanes can't fly and that H-bombs won't work and that stones don't fall out of the sky. Logic is a way of saying that anything which didn't happen yesterday won't happen tomorrow"
Robert Heinlein wasn't just one of the most notable science fiction writers of all time, he was (and continues to be) also my all-time favorite author. His attention to plausible science, and the unique literary quality of his writing, raised the bar of science fiction and made his stories, such as Time Enough for Love and Stranger in a Strange Land, my personal favorites, as some of the greatest science fiction classics of all time. Heinlein's themes are often universal and focus greatly on social and cultural ideas, and although his stories are set in other worlds, his observations and depictions of humanity are very recognizable, as recurrent themes run through his work like fresh mountain rain in a river. Nearly all of the quotations found within this page have been taken from Time Enough for Love. As you will soon see, the difficulty in quoting Heinlein's masterpiece isn't in finding suitable material--it's in having to decide what to leave out. A quick note on my editing: I have done my best to keep edits to the bare minimum. Phrases like, "Getting up early, Ira,..." are rendered as "Getting up early..." simply to target the thought with as little fuss as possible. In cases where such editing would impact the full meaning of the quote, no editing has been done. Photo: Donato Giancola, Donato Arts

In 1964, famed science fiction writer Isaac Asimov ventured a guess at what you might find if you set foot inside the 2014 World’s Fair. Using his gift for envisioning future technology, Asimov’s predictions from 50 years out are both stunningly accurate and perhaps a little bit depressing. Here’s a look at what he got […]
