Beyond this Horizon by Robert A Heinlein was written ten years after Huxley s Brave New World and the influence from this genetic and sociological masterpiece is evident Also noteworthy is that the book was published during WWII and this may comprise Heinlein s response to Hitler s Nietzschian policies, especially ideas about elitist racism and possible supermen Cannot help wonder if Woody Allen thought of this book while producing Sleeper as at least a couple of scenes reminded me of the 197 Beyond this Horizon by Robert A Heinlein was written ten years after Huxley s Brave New World and the influence from this genetic and sociological masterpiece is evident Also noteworthy is that the book was published during WWII and this may comprise Heinlein s response to Hitler s Nietzschian policies, especially ideas about elitist racism and possible supermen Cannot help wonder if Woody Allen thought of this book while producing Sleeper as at least a couple of scenes reminded me of the 1970s film, though the film was apparently loosely based upon Wells The Sleeper Awakes Heinlein would come back to this theme several times, most notably in Methuselah s Children and Time Enough for Love This is one of his earlier works and the reader can also see glimpses of his strong libertarian principles taking shape in the narrative Being one of his earlier works, though, RAH had yet
It s time to prepare for the 1943 retro Hugo awards that will be presented in 2018 Why Why not Some books deserve love even if they re before the Hugos even began In this case, novels published in 1942 are eligible Books like C.S Lewis s Screwtape Letters are technically eligible but really shouldn t be There s nothing much SF about the religious satire.On the other hand, I really enjoyed Olaf Stapledon s anti novel and worldbuilding masterpiece The Darkness and
I read this book when I was 11, and I don t care who knows I really liked it I don t guarantee I d like it as much if I read it again today I ll admit I can t remember all that much about it It s this future society run along sort of eugenic libertarian lines Everyone walks around carrying a deadly weapon, except for a few wusses If somebody offends you, you challenge him to a duel on the spot Or her, did I hear you ask Good question I don t think it ever came up.The bit I remember best I read this book when I was 11, and I don t care who knows I really liked it I don t guarantee I d like it as much if I read it again today I ll admit I can t reme
This book answered a question for me that I ve wondered about for a long time what does an author do with his leftover story tangents that he likes but can t quite work in anywhere Answer he saves them all up for when he builds a great make believe alternate reality society but has no storyline to go along with it.Building great make believe alternate reality societies is what Heinlein just does naturally, like a fish breathing water In this particular novel, there are 2 fascinating aspects This book answered a question for me that I ve wondered about for a long time what does an author do with his leftover story tangents that he likes but can t quite
Yeah, it s kind of a mess And remember Heinlein has a certain sort of disturbingly sexist attitude, doesn t understand women at all certainly the only armed one is seen as, erm, eccentric, to put it mildly.Females don t need guns because men aka people are all about being protective and chivalrous except when they re spanking

First time I ve read this book in several for some definitions of the word several It s mostly noted, and maybe notable for its first few sentences, where Heinlein uses phrasing to put you in the midst of his future world The door dilated is justly famous His portrayal of a society where everyone or most people carry weapons of one sort or another is known to with its supposed corollary an armed populous is a polite populous i don t buy it, and he really doesn t demonstrate here As First time I ve read this book in several for some definitions of the word several It s mostly noted, and maybe notable for its first few sentences, where Heinlein uses phrasing to put you in the midst of his future world The door dilated is justly famous His portrayal of a society where everyone or most people carry weapons of one sort or another is known to with its supposed corollary an armed populous is a polite populous i don t buy it, and he really doesn t demonstrate here As David Brin pointed out recently, in an essay that reminded me I hadn t read this book in a long time, those who support its views on gun control pretty much ignore the other aspect of its utopia people get all their needs taken care of by the government Nobody has to work to earn a living Other points about the society are that there s a bureaucracy that is guiding society, mostly through advising people on their breeding and how
