Reviews

"Patterson covers all the bases-an essential book for studious fans of Heinlein, with valuable lessons for anyone hoping to make a living with the pen." --"Kirkus Reviews" Patterson covers all the bases-an essential book for studious fans of Heinlein, with valuable lessons for anyone hoping to make a living with the pen. "Kirkus Reviews"" "Patterson's two volumes are a remarkable picture of an influential writer and his time in history ... Don't be surprised if your biography-loving friend ask you for Stranger in a Strange Land or Starship Troopers after finishing this book." --Analog "Patterson's prose is easy to read, packed with data but never dry. I expected to work through the book over time, but found that I devoured it in a few long sessions." --The Nameless Zine "It's likely the most we will ever learn about Heinlein (and probably in finer detail than most readers would sit still for), and despite its adulatory tone it reveals a great deal more about Heinlein's real attitudes than his own rather disappointingly bland Grumbles from the Grave." --Locus "Fans and scholars of Heinlein will find this an invaluable resource, though there is little here to appeal to other readers." --Library Journal "His [Patterson's] monumental biography remains an important contribution to the history of American science fiction." --Washington Post "An essential book for studious fans of Heinlein, with valuable lessons for anyone hoping to make a living with the pen." --Kirkus Reviews "An important foundation for future appreciations of the author's work." --Publishers Weekly Patterson s two volumes are a remarkable picture of an influential writer and his time in history Don t be surprised if your biography-loving friend ask you "for Stranger in a Strange Land" or "Starship Troopers" after finishing this book.
