My two cents: Once the legalities are settled I would really love to see the complete set turned into a Kindle/Nook book and sold online for a "modest" price. They would get a lot more exposure and hopefully spawn more research and books on Heinlein.

I would like to see that, too. And if any assistance is needed to turn them into ebooks, I'd be glad to help.

When available, I'm definitely in the market for a full run.

Post Excellent news!
From the May 2016 Heinlein Society emailed newsletter:

Quote:
THE HEINLEIN JOURNAL RETURNS!

The Heinlein world was shocked when RAH’s biographer, William H. Patterson, Jr., passed away suddenly on April 21, 2014, just as the second volume of his epic biography of RAH was about to be published. We here at THS were more than shocked. Bill was not just a colleague in the Heinlein legacy vineyards, but a personal friend as well. He was the Founding President of the Society, and even after he became too busy to do that, in later years he was our Academic Chair, a position he still held at the time of his passing.

His role in the Heinlein world can never be replaced, and yet the responsibility of his friends and colleagues is to do our best to carry on his proud legacy of Heinlein scholarship. To that end, we contacted his family after his passing and inquired if it would be possible to receive his Heinlein-related research materials and papers, and to receive permission to continue to distribute existing issues of The Heinlein Journal (21 issues published, with another two issues partially completed at the time of his passing) and continue publication of future issues.

Recently we were informed by Bill’s family that probate on his estate was complete, and that they were willing to donate Bill’s Heinlein-related papers to THS, and grant us permission to continue to distribute and produce THJ. The Society will also be receiving the domains whpattersonjr.com and heinleinjournal.com from Deb Houdek Rule, who had maintained them on Bill’s behalf.

And . . .

Quote:
NEW HEINLEIN SOCIETY ACADEMIC CHAIR!

Now, we here at the Society will begin to ramp up. To that end, we have named Marie Guthrie, Ph.D. as our new Academic Chair. Dr. Guthrie completed the first known academic dissertation on Heinlein’s works, was a personal friend of Ginny’s, and Bill’s, and many of us in the Heinlein legacy world. She’s an excellent choice to lead the effort to make sense of what we’ve received from Bill’s estate and formulate a plan to lead THJ forward. Society directors John Seltzer and Geo Rule will also serve on the initial committee with her. Robert James, Ph.D., who was Associate Editor of THJ has been consulted as well, and will continue to contribute as his many projects allow him time to do so.

I'll be traveling the next three weeks, but when I return, I will be putting the final touches on the rejuvenated Heinlein Journal. If you have any society information that you would like me to include, whether it is an advertisement for the Society, for H4H, blood drives, or anything else, please email me that content before June 10. If you had any Heinlein-related articles, letters, anything that might be appropriate, send them my way, please. I already have a few things from board members (thanks!) and now's the time to send anything else. Publication date: 07/07/17. Email to Marie Guthrie: academicschair@heinleinsociety.org Thanks!

Marie is hoping to have it "launched" on 7/7 but we have to iron out a few kinks with payment and ordering. If you are going to NASFiC look her up.
