    1 thought on “Requiem: New Collected Works by Robert A. Heinlein and Tributes to the Grand Master

    1. This was WAY up and down I liked some of the shorts, though I had already read a number of them.The convention speeches really gave me insight into the FAR RIGHT MCCARTHY-ISM this guy had going on - at least earlier in his life, and in fairness, it was kind of a sign of the times.It just caught me by surprise as I have an idea where this author ends up on the left / right scale - IE: dial pointing slightly to the left of the L - think analog dial if that one stumps youAnd though his change is qu [...]

    2. This tear-jerker surrounds the Harriman, the well-known future history character whose company opened up travel to the moon, and his desire to finally, personally visit the moon as an old man. Harriman's single-minded ambition to get to the moon is detailed in other, longer stories. The responsibilities of running the company that makes it possible keep him from traveling there personally. His life's work and ambition can't be complete without a personal visit, which circumstances still make all [...]

    3. Basically a collection of short texts, many of them non-fiction -- most are interesting, but if you are after Heinlein's wondrous tales, you might want to pass.

    4. Requiem is a compelling celebration of Robert A. Heinlein and his vision, containing many new and uncollected works by the Grand Master of science fiction, including two major novellas: Destination Moon, which was made into the famous George Pal film, and Tenderfoot in Space. There are contributions from such luminaries as Arthur C. Clarke, Robert Silverberg, Spider Robinson, and Gordon R. Dickson, as well as an introduction by Virginia Heinlein. Heinlein was the pre-eminent science fiction writ [...]

    5. I loved Heinlein. I wish, like my friend, Chuck Coffin, I could have met him. I think he'd have been an interesting man in a curmudgeonly way. Those that did know him, seemed to worship him, as some of these stories will attest. Most of the stuff in this book is pretty interesting, but a few are a bit over-the-top, such as Robinson's "rah-Rah-RAH!". Still, it's a fitting memorial to one of the greatest science fiction writers of all time.

    6. The final volume of this 46 volume set, and rightly so. In addition to the original tributes originally included, there are a number of essays submitted some 15 years later, largely by military and scientific personnel, clarifying Heinlein's continuing influence on them and their respective work communities.

    7. Edited by Yoji Kendo - Contains first book publication of short stories "Requiem", "Tenderfoot in Space" and "Destination Moon" and other material. Speeches at an RAH retrospective at the Smithsonian 10/6/88 by Tom Clancy, de Camp, Pournelle, etc Posthumous tributes to RAH by Poul Anderson, Arthur Clarke, Joe Haldeman, Larry Niven, Spider Robinson, etc.

    8. Requiem is a jewel for readers of Heinlein. The eulogies demonstrate what a tremendous impact Heinlein had on the world of science fiction as a writer, and his impact on the men and women who create our technology and drive us towards the stars today.

    9. Great eulogy and fitting endcap to a true legend, and grandmaster. The shorts, I felt, also showed the versitility of Heinlein as a writer the only qualm I have is with Tenderfoot in Space, in that I think the Charlie Vaughn was a little bitchy.

    10. The MasterWhere to begin? RAH introduced me to do many ideas that have followed me through my 70+ years and became a fixed part of my personal life code. This book was a fascinating insight into the effect he had on these other writers. A treasure trove of ideas.

    11. Honestly I skipped the last tribute to essays at the end - I *know* this is a tribute to volume in the first place and 5 or, say 7 tribute to essays from the real big calibers are fine but at the 20th one boredom tends to set in

    12. I seem to be rereading a bit here. This on has some reprinted Heinlein, some speeches, and some tributes. It's a mishmash, but necessary for completists.

    14. A fitting tribute to the grand master of science fiction. Truly one of a kind, and still sorely missed.
