Tietoja tekijästä

Robert Anson Heinlein was born on July 7, 1907 in Butler, Mo. The son of Rex Ivar and Bam Lyle Heinlein, Robert Heinlein had two older brothers, one younger brother, and three younger sisters. Moving to Kansas City, Mo., at a young age, Heinlein graduated from Central High School in 1924 and näytä lisää attended one year of college at Kansas City Community College. Following in his older brother's footsteps, Heinlein entered the Navel Academy in 1925. After contracting pulmonary tuberculosis, of which he was later cured, Heinlein retired from the Navy and married Leslyn MacDonald. Heinlein was said to have held jobs in real estate and photography, before he began working as a staff writer for Upton Sinclair's EPIC News in 1938. Still needing money desperately, Heinlein entered a writing contest sponsored by the science fiction magazine Thrilling Wonder Stories. Heinlein wrote and submitted the story "Life-Line," which went on to win the contest. This guaranteed Heinlein a future in writing. Using his real name and the pen names Caleb Saunders, Anson MacDonald, Lyle Monroe, John Riverside, and Simon York, Heinlein wrote numerous novels including For Us the Living, Methuselah's Children, and Starship Troopers, which was adapted into a big-budget film for Tri-Star Pictures in 1997. The Science Fiction Writers of America named Heinlein its first Grand Master in 1974, presented 1975. Officers and past presidents of the Association select a living writer for lifetime achievement. Also, the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame inducted Heinlein in 1998. Heinlein died in 1988 from emphysema and other related health problems. Heinlein's remains were scattered from the stern of a Navy warship off the coast of California. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

Lyhyt elämäkerta
Robert Anson Heinlein was born in July 1907, in Missouri.  A military career was ended by tuberculosis in 1934.  After a brief attempt at politics, he became a hugely prolific science fiction author, writing novels and short stories until his death in 1988.

Robert Anson Heinlein July 7, 1907 – May 8, 1988) was an American science-fiction author, aeronautical engineer, and retired Naval officer. Sometimes called the "dean of science fiction writers", he was among the first to emphasize scientific accuracy in his fiction, and was thus a pioneer of the subgenre of hard science fiction. His published works, both fiction and non-fiction, express admiration for competence and emphasize the value of critical thinking. His work continues to have an influence on the science-fiction genre, and on modern culture more generally.

Heinlein became one of the first American science-fiction writers to break into mainstream magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post in the late 1940s. He was one of the best-selling science-fiction novelists for many decades, and he, Isaac Asimov, and Arthur C. Clarke are often considered the "Big Three" of English-language science fiction authors. Notable Heinlein works include Stranger in a Strange Land, Starship Troopers (which helped mold the space marine and mecha archetypes) and The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress. His work sometimes had controversial aspects, such as plural marriage in The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, militarism in Starship Troopers and technologically competent women characters that were strong and independent, yet often stereotypically feminine – such as Friday.

A writer also of numerous science-fiction short stories, Heinlein was one of a group of writers who came to prominence under the editorship (1937–1971) of John W. Campbell at Astounding Science Fiction magazine, though Heinlein denied that Campbell influenced his writing to any great degree.

Heinlein used his science fiction as a way to explore provocative social and political ideas, and to speculate how progress in science and engineering might shape the future of politics, race, religion, and sex. Within the framework of his science-fiction stories, Heinlein repeatedly addressed certain social themes: the importance of individual liberty and self-reliance, the nature of sexual relationships, the obligation individuals owe to their societies, the influence of organized religion on culture and government, and the tendency of society to repress nonconformist thought. He also speculated on the influence of space travel on human cultural practices.

Heinlein was named the first Science Fiction Writers Grand Master in 1974. Four of his novels won Hugo Awards. In addition, fifty years after publication, seven of his works were awarded "Retro Hugos"—awards given retrospectively for works that were published before the Hugo Awards came into existence. In his fiction, Heinlein coined terms that have become part of the English language, including grok, waldo and speculative fiction, as well as popularizing existing terms like "TANSTAAFL", "pay it forward", and "space marine". He also anticipated mechanical computer-aided design with "Drafting Dan" and described a modern version of a waterbed in his novel Beyond This Horizon. In the first chapter of the novel Space Cadet he anticipated the cell phone, 35 years before Motorola invented the technology. Several of Heinlein's works have been adapted for film and television.

Turistiristeily Tyynellämerellä muuttuu painajaiseksi, kun Alex Hergensheimer suorittaa kanssamatkustajiensa kannustuksesta onnistuneen polynesialaisen tulikävelyn. Alex pääsee tulisten hiilien yli helposti, mutta pyörtyy lopuksi. Kun Alex virkoaa, hän pääsee takaisin laivalleen.
Laiva vain on aivan eri laiva kuin aikaisemmin. Hyttikin kuuluu jollekin A. Grahamille, mutta toisaalta – kaikki ottavat Alexin ongelmitta vastaan Alec Grahamina, myös hyttipalvelija Margrethe, jolla on suhde oikean Alec Grahamin kanssa. Maailma on muutenkin muuttunut, Alex on heitetty vallan rinnakkaiseen todellisuuteen, jonka kehitys eroaa selkeästi hänen omastaan. Eikä tämä jää ainoaksi maailmanvaihdokseksi.

ROBERT HEINLEIN
on Amerikan kaikkein kuuluisin ja suosituin science fictionkirjailija: Hänen tieteisromaanejaan pidetään kokonaan uuden kirjallisuuden lajina. Hänen kirjojensa perustana ovat nykyiset ja tulevat tieteelliset keksinnöt, mutta kirjojen juoni on huikeudessaan ja lennokkuudessaan aivan ainutlaatuinen. Heinleinin kirjoissa voi tapahtua – ja tapahtuukin – melkein mitä vain. (Risingshadow)
