I'm curious if you've read The Martian Named Smith?


Is that the essay for the library association? If so, yes.

No, it's a book/monograph about Stranger I wrote about ten years ago. It unpacks a lot of *stuff* in stranger and has a long concluding appendix about the meaning of character names. A bit has been published since then on the subject of the names, and on the writing chronology, but TMNS has the biggest chunk of information about Stranger(that I know of, at any rate) Available from Nitrosyncretic Press -- or I believe, from the Heinlein Society now. Haven't heard yet what terms they will sell the stock.


Yeah, I ordered it yesterday from Amazon.

I can vouch for the fact that TMNS is a great read, although 10 years on I'm still trying to understand it. :lol:

But do you understand Stranger any better????


It certainly helped me to understand that there are many layers, nuances and contexts within Stranger that I never considered. It also helped solidify my belief that Heinlein was much, much more than an ordinary science fiction author. Thanks for that.

That's what I was aiming for. I would say "my work here is done," but it's obviously not. Back to editing
