Post Amazing Stories essay
A ca. 1961 issue of Amazing Stories has an essay of at least a few pages about RAH. I can't tell if it is primarily critical or biographical. Does anyone know the specifics -- who wrote it, is it in print otherwise, etc.

Bill, I can only guess that this is early version of Moskowitz's essay, later revised when incorporated in Seekers of Tomorrow. My faltering memory, and Wikipedia, both indicated that Amazing ran early versions of the individual chapters.

Excellent guess!

Sam Moskowitz published "Robert Heinlein: Man, Myth, or Monster?" in the June 1961 issue of Amazing Stories, page 67.

In 1966 he compiled the short biographies of this series into the book Seekers of Tomorrow.

I still have my battered 1967 Ballantine Books edition. Essential stuff - at least, it was for me as I worked my way into Golden Age SF.

Thanks much.

I haven't read the essay. What did he decide -- man, myth, or monster?
