THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST

Considered by some to be one of the more confusing of Heinlein’s works, the novel THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST was written late in his career. It begins with the fastest falling in love sequence since ROMEO AND JULIET and ends with a party at which many of RAH’s characters and many of his real…

Prophets of Science Fiction: Reviewed by “Thinker”
