Post Re: Interesting take on Variable Star
I just happen to be re-reading Variable Star at the moment and I believe the only way to read this novel is see it as a Spider work with strong RAH overtones.

I read the book when it first came out and it has sat on a shelf since, needing something to read
I decided to re-read and am enjoying it. I am sure RAH would have done things differently, but I accept the story for what it is and will probably come back to it in 3 or 4 yrs.

Was "pay it forward" originally Ben Franklin or does it predate even him? And was it RAH or Spider Robinson that really pushed it?

Several cites (as well as sites) say it appeared in a letter from Benjamin Franklin to Benjamin Webb dated April 22, 1784. (Hopefully they are not all citing each other. ) Apprently there is a movement of some kind with that name as well.
