“The Randish thing I’ve noticed in Heinlein is the problems Daniel Shipstone had and how he handled them.”
“My favorite Alternate World War II spaceship, influenced by the Nazi Moon Rocket in Heinlein's Rocketship Galileo  is this one, shown in a passage from my novel manuscript (unpublished) Fast Times at Stuyvesant High.”
“I second that Job, a Comedy of Errors by Heinlein is a must read.”
“The other, this being Heinlein, is more complex: it is the politics.”
“Heinlein is clear that his Luna isn't necessarily an ideal society (clearer than in some of his other books) but also clear that he wants us to think about the practical consequences of not having much in the way of government, and also to think beyond the Cold War divide which dominated political discourse at the time he was writing.”
“Heinlein is SUCH a good writer to bring up here: his juviniles are amazing things, and should be required reading before you're fifteen.”
“Because of the differences between what occurs in Heinlein's future history and what happens in the scripts of the series, some changes are made.”
“Most of the stories take place in Heinlein's future history series (collected in books such as The Past Through Tomorrow, The Man Who Sold the Moon and The Green Hills of Earth); and originally appeared in genre publications such as Astounding Science Fiction as well as a number of the "slicks" that Heinlein wanted to break into (the money was bigger).”
“Now, Heinlein is in a league of his own, but to have him even slightly compared shows that someone valued Gould's story.”
“Robert Heinlein is another writer who falls into this category.”
