Post New Heinlein Tribute book?
From Jerry Pournelle's "Chaos Manor" webpage, as seen today:
http://www.jerrypournelle.com/view/2008 ... #Wednesday

"Yoji Kondo called to remind me that my reminiscences of Robert Heinlein are due for his tribute/memorial book. . ."

Anyone know anything about this?

Anyone mind if I yawn? Or - sorry, Peter, did you have a trademark on that?

I think it might be The Heinlein Century which Dr. K is putting together. The original goal of this was to fulfill Ginny's ambition to put together a book of Heinlein on writing. It kind of grew in the process and will have a structure somewhat like Requiem now, so far as I can tell -- i.e., several sections that have nothing to do with each other.

It will be included in the Virginia Edition, if you've subscribed to that.

Well, the object was to get everything into reprint (initally no unpublished material was going to be included except the letters, but several volumesgot gutted for The Heinlein Century and other projects -- to prevent duplication -- so some unpublished and even "related" material was ultimately included), so that's not entirely surprising.

I know. It's just funny to me, every time a new collation of RAH materials is noted, you add, "Oh, yes, that will be in the VE."

So many amusing things to comment on in this thread, so little time.

Yeah, well, I've been spending full time on the VE for the last year and a half. It's kinda on my mind. Since I turned in the last bit of the initial preparation it's been like stepping on a step that isn't there, so I'm lining up The Next Thing (as well as picking up the Journal, which I dropped in the meantime).

One of my favorite cartoons of all time shows Colonel Sanders handing a menu back to a waitress. "Anything but fried chicken."

Yeah. The VE didn't do that to me, but the biography certainly is.

I can certainly believe it, but I hope you know that those of us out here waiting for that bio are ever so grateful for all the time you dedicated to the project, and look forward with great anticipation to its publication. Thanks!
