  • Robert A. Heinlein (1907–1988) is generally considered the greatest American SF writer of the twentieth century. A famous and best-selling author in later life, he started as a navy man and graduate of Annapolis who was forced to retire because of tuberculosis. A socialist politician in the 1930s, he became one of the sources of Libertarian politics in the United States in his later years.

    His most famous works include the Future History series (stories and novels collected in The Past Through Tomorrow and continued in later novels), Starship Troopers, Stranger in a Strange Land, and The Moon is a Harsh Mistress. He was a friend of admirals and of best-selling writers and artists, and was on the advisory committee that helped Ronald Reagan create the Star Wars Strategic Defence Initiative. Given his desire for privacy in the later decades of his life, he was both stranger and more interesting than one could ever have known.
