ROBERT A. HEINLEIN

Robert A. HeinleinROBERT A. HEINLEIN (1907 – 1988) was an American Science Fiction author. He won an unprecedented five Hugo awards for his many excellent novels and was named a Grand Master by the SFWA. Heinlein wrote short stories prior to WWII, entered the United States Navy and was discharged due to poor health. After WWII he began writing a series of popular novels affectionally known as “juveniles” – which tended to star young men or teens. Later, in the late 1950s and early 1960s he began a middle period, in which his protagonists confronted more societal based issues. In his lat career, the 1970s and 1980s he wrote novels about older, wiser, more opinionated men. But there were many exceptions. If you haven’t read Heinlein, you haven’t really read Science Fiction. The bulk of his impressive fiction is available as audiobooks, often in multiple versions.
