One of his favourite pursuits was to play clarinet in chamber music concerts in his home state of Michigan, where he lived with Ypsilanti his wife and two children. He possessed a guinea-pig called Schopenhauer.

  • Starship Troopers [top]
    First published in a much abridged version of the book in Fantasy and Science Fiction magazine under the title "Starship Soldier"
    First published in this edition in 1960 in the United States by G. P. Putnam's Sons, New York, and simultaneously in the Dominion of Canada by Longmans, Green & Company

Storyline: Robert Heinlein's "Starship Troopers" are the jet-propelled infantrymen of the future. In a galactic war of untold violence and destruction, they scour the metal-strewn emptiness of space and hunt out the Enemy. But neither the viciousness of their electronic armour nor the bloodthirsty militarism of their training can save them from the grip of loneliness and fear. It is essentially a story about war, this one some 5,000 years in the future: and about the soldiers that fight the war - infantrymen equipped with jet-propelled armoured suits and fearsome weapons. Above all, it is the story of the making of a man - John Rico - from the time he leaves school to enlist till he commands his own platoon of infantrymen
