''Heinlein wears imagination as though it were his private suit of clothes.'' --New York Times, praise for the author
''There is no other writer whose work has exhilarated me as often and to such an extent as Heinlein.'' --Dean Koontz, praise for the author
''Not only America's premier writer of speculative fiction, but the greatest writer of such fiction in the world.'' --Stephen King, praise for the author --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
Like many people, I go way, way back with Heinlein. My very favorite book (and one that stands out in my mind--and with much affection--to this day) is Tunnel in the Sky. I really, really wanted to go off to explore new worlds with a covered wagon and horses, like the hero does at the very end of the book. But one of the nice things about Robert Heinlein is that he's got something for everyone. One of my best friends has a different favorite: Podkayne of Mars. Go figure.
