Read full description of the books The Green Hills of Earth:Dated. Campy. Corny. Sexist – and wonderfully, absolutely Heinlein.
His 1951 collection of “Future History” short stories, all written in the 1940s, represents some of his earlier works. Fans of his juveniles will especially like this publication.
Modern readers will point to stories like "Delilah and the Space Rigger" and "Space Jockey" and will scream that Heinlein was a male chauvinist pig; but progressive for his time Heinlein was carrying Rosie the Riveter into space and expanding her importance in a later, progressive culture.
"The Black Pits of Luna" and "It's Great to Be Back!" describe plucky Lunar dwellers with a pioneering soul. “The Long Watch” is an unapologetically homely ode to courage.
"—We Also Walk Dogs" is a pragmatic and sanguine exploration of future capitalism and libertarianism; and this story, to me at least, demonstrates what is best about Robert A. Heinlein. In a literary landscape flooded with dystopian and post-apocalyptic nightmares, Heinlein’s unabashed optimism about the future is a warm reminder that literature, especially science fiction, can be bright.
Read information about the authorRobert Anson Heinlein was an American novelist and science fiction writer. Often called "the dean of science fiction writers", he is one of the most popular, influential, and controversial authors of "hard science fiction".
He set a high standard for science and engineering plausibility and helped to raise the genre's standards of literary quality. He was the first SF writer to break into mainstream, general magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post, in the late 1940s. He was also among the first authors of bestselling, novel-length science fiction in the modern, mass-market era.
