Robert A. Heinlein

Robert A. Heinlein (1907-1988) was an American science-fiction author, aeronautical engineer, and retired naval officer. Sometimes referred to as the “dean of science-fiction writers,” he was among the first to emphasize scientific accuracy in his fiction. Heinlein published over one hundred novels, short stories, and articles in his life, and won six Hugo awards. His influence can be clearly seen in the writings of many important authors writing today.
