The Heinlein Society

The Heinlein Society exists to preserve the legacy renowned writer Robert Anson Heinlein left us in novels, essays, speeches, and short stories that remain as fresh as ever. We need your help to do it.

We intend in Heinlein’s words to “PAY IT FORWARD,” since we can never pay back the benefits we got from him, by spreading the wisdom of Robert Anson Heinlein to others.

Promote Heinlein blood drives.

Award scholarships to worthy young people.

Provide educational materials to teachers and librarians.

Promote scholarly research and overall discussion of the works and ideas of Robert Anson Heinlein.

Provide copies of Heinlein’s books- and other SF- to members of the military and veterans (Heinlein For Heroes).
