I dunno -- what's your name? We can call it that.

This might be of interest to some.

Just actually downloaded this yesterday and read the Caxton Club article this a.m., as I eagerly await notification that the RAH Vol I ordered has arrived at the local Books-A-Million. Egregious error on the 2nd page of the article - That is not a picture of Heinlein at 29 [in his Midshipman's uniform 2 years after being medically retired from the Navy?!?!], but, I would assume, his photo, at 21, in the 1929 USNA yearbook.

[For those who may have wondered, the club is not named after Ben Caxton of SiaSL, but "in honor of the first English printer, William Caxton" who it would seem printed the first book in England in 1477 after learning the trade in Germany from 1471 on, and then returning to England and importing a printing press from the Netherlands.]

I know, who cares? Never mind, let me call BAM and see if The Book is in; I can't stand this.

Oh frabjous joy!!!!! It is in. Back later. A lot later.
