No. Written after TIME ENOUGH FOR LOVE.


That certainly narrows it down! :D I'll defer to Jim.

At least once every human should have to run for his life, to teach him that milk does not come from supermarkets, that safety does not come from policemen, that news is not something that happens to other people.

The answer is NUMBER OF THE BEAST.

Trivia question. This quote came from one of Heinlein's books. Which one?

The biscuits and the syrup never come out even.

Here's another I did recently on Facebook.

"Monthly" seems ambitious for a newsletter that's printing news from 11 months ago. I don't envy the editors* who must continually find material to keep this stoked. However, I salute their spirit, and wish them luck.

"Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp, or what's a heaven for?"




* I have been unable to determine by examination of the newsletter just who the editors are.

Deb did the first one. At some point she's going to turn it over to me and Elisabeth (Twitter admin). The content will be made up of posts from Twitter and Facebook and the Society website. Important announcements will be added too.

Might as well have another doomed guess: Cliff and the Calories.

No. It is one of his later books. I'll give the answer tomorrow.

It's a Lazarus Long quote but I find that I can no longer sort those out by book. I'll hazard a guess at Sunset.
