Book Note: Joseph T. Major, Heinlein's Children

I read this book about 1-Oct-2012. This is the first time I've read this book. The book is copyright 2006. This note was last modified Monday, 05-Nov-2012 10:52:55 PST.

This note does not contain major spoilers for the book.


Non-fiction, so "spoiler" doesn't apply in my system. But note that both the book and discussions of it may well contain spoilers for the Heinlein juveniles being discussed (the book certainly does; dunno if I'm going to go into enough detail here to actually put spoilers here).

This book has a chapter discussing each of the juveniles, fairly broadly defined (it includes Starship Troopers and Podkayne of Mars).

I remember them well enough that reading this was in some ways like re-reading all of them and discussing them with another fan. So that was pretty neat.

Advent press has had a long and extremely important history in publishing SF criticism; it's very nice to see them still important in the 21st century.
