A propos de cet article

Octavo, boards. First edition. The senior editor's marked copy for production of the trade paperback (so indicated by the senior editor on the front free endpaper). A miscellany including fiction and nonfiction by Heinlein, latter mostly convention speeches, speeches made at the 6 October 1988 National Air and Space Museum Heinlein Retrospective, and tributes to Heinlein by Poul Anderson, Greg Bear, Arthur C. Clarke, Larry Niven, Robert Silverberg and others. Spine ends just a bit soft, else a fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#141643). N° de réf. du libraire 141643

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

A collection of Heinlein's works--including two major novellas, Destination Moon and Tenderfoot in Space--features contributions by Arthur C. Clarke, Tom Clancy, and others that pay tribute to Heinlein.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Another of science fiction's weird hybrids, comprising fiction, poems, speeches, reminiscences, and appreciations by and about Robert A. Heinlein (1907-88), one of the most successful and influential science fiction writers of the modern era. Part I features the famous title story, six previously uncollected miscellaneous pieces, and four speeches that Heinlein delivered at sf conventions. Part II reprints the speeches given at the Heinlein retrospective at the National Air and Space Museum in October 1988. Part II consists of tributes to the Grandmaster from, among others, Poul Anderson, Greg Bear, Arthur C. Clarke, Joe Haldeman, Larry Niven, Spider Robinson, Robert Silverberg, and Jack Williamson. Among the more interesting entries are ``Destination Moon,'' the story that formed the basis for the innovative 1950 movie, co-scripted by Heinlein; and Heinlein's account of his involvement in making the movie--essential reading for sf-movie buffs. Elsewhere, Spider Robinson's egregious, ranting defense of Heinlein against mostly unspecified detractors will raise a few eyebrows; contrast Robert Silverberg's panegyric, a more reliable summary of Heinlein's substantial and lasting contribution to the field. Sentimental hagiography. -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
