This Concordance provides definitions for the people, places, and things in
Robert Heinlein's novels and "Future History" stories. It contains two sets of
pages: alphabetical lists, and lists organized by book/story. Use the links at
the top to view the alphabetical pages. To view the "story" pages click the story name in the list in the left sidebar.
If all or part of an entry label is a hyperlink, it's a reference to
something in the real world. Some of the references are obvious, for example, a
spaceship named after Albert Einstein. But many are obscure enough that the
descriptions of the real-world references might make fascinating reading.
The following novels and stories are included in the Concordance. (All novels
except For Us, the Living are included, but only those short stories
related to the Future History.)
Society was founded by Virginia Heinlein on behalf of her husband, science
fiction author Robert Anson Heinlein, to "pay forward" the legacy of Robert A. Heinlein to future generations of "Heinlein's Children."
