"new" heinlein novel
    #2391024 - 03/01/04 01:51 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

well, has anybody checked out _for us, the living_ yet?
~
written in 1938 (before he sold his first short story "lifeline"...)
sorta "primitive" style (perhaps reminiscent of gernsback's "ralph 124c41" maybe?)
1938 man has car crash; comes to in 2084 & america sure is different form back in my day, golly gee...
(the newly awakened citizen has problems understanding late 21st century economics, sexual mores, customs of service & privacy, etc...)
well worth reading for die-hard fans, & for scholars of american literature...
(but prolly not recommended for your very first exposure to his writings :wink: ...)

well, speak up, alla youse sci-fi nutzies out there !
