Post subject:  Kipling and Heinlein's universes

An internet search suggests to me that no one has made a connection between Rudyard Kipling's "The Last of the
Stories" (1888; collected 1909) and Heinlein's idea about writers making universes via their creations.

Kipling Society info link regarding the story: http://www.kiplingsociety.co.uk/rg_last1.htm

A grossly in need of proofing and almost worthless text of the whole collection at Archive.org:

An audiobook reading of the story:

Any thoughts?

Is the Google Books version any better?

Bill, I get a 500 (!) from Google on that link.

I assume you mean the error code 500; I've had no problem accessing the text from a couple computers. Maybe an issue with your browser? Anyone else have access problems?

No problem here, BillinCle. I used Mozilla.

Working for me now. Perhaps the locale redirect to books.google.ca was having trouble at the time.
