A good essay on RAH and politics, based on papers the author actually read from the Archives (yay!).

Robert Heinlein and the Harsh Politics of Science Fiction

Robert, you and I kicked this around when it was new, back in 2013.

For those just tuning in, note also the immediately subsequent entry , in which Prof. McCray examines a dispute between Heinlein and distinguished engineer Bernard Oliver over the Strategic Defense Initiative.

Patrick McCray's blog continues to be well worth reading. His latest book, The Visioneers, is a double-barrelled history of the space-colonies idea and of nanotechnology-- they are somewhat intertwined--that may well interest the sort of people who participate in this here forum.

I'm glad someone out there can remember farther back than last week... :) I thought it seemed familiar, due diligence would have been for me to check the archives here. Anyway, maybe someone new will read it.

Thanks for pointing it out.

My memory is just as creaky as yours, but a tiny bell ringing somewhere deep within its caverns led me to check the Search function. The 2013 conversation was revealed.

Let's meet in two years, and discuss it all over again!
