Robert Anson Heinlein was born on 7/7/1907. Today would have been his eleventy-first birthday.
I have been a fan of his for a very long time. His work has had a big influence on me.
If you have seen the 1997 movie Starship Troopers, you should check out the book, if you haven’t already. I’m really hoping they reboot that movie (since they are rebooting everything else) and maybe they will actually base it on the book this time!
Also, one of my favorite books The Moon is a Harsh Mistress is supposedly stuck in “development hell” under the direction of Bryan Singer. I’d much prefer to see this book made into a series. A two hour movie just won’t do it justice.
