(Saw this on AFH; just had to pass it on.)

Really nice of someone to make RAH the subject of an April 1st hoax. Sort of thing we should have done maybe on the run up to the Centennial.

I think this has been done before. Wasn't a purported fragment of one of the unwritten stories published by one of the magazines, oh, five-six years ago?

Not just "someone;" the erudite and vivacious Jo Walton. She loves Heinlein. His works have occasionally popped up in her (recommended) re-reading column at Tor.com.

Her first novel, The King's Peace, is an alternate-Arthurian fantasy. But there's a particular page in it that will make you say "Aha! This woman has read Starship Troopers!"

Jo's books are on the "authors who have stayed here" shelf here at the Nuclear Arms.
