Apex Blog: Stranger in a Strange Land: A Personal Reflection on the Fiftieth Anniversary

I missed a month of my Apex Blog, but I'm sort of keeping up the time travel theme. Today, I discuss what I discovered when I re-read the Robert A. Heinlein novel Stranger in a Strange Land last week, getting my re-read just under the wire for the book's 50th anniversary.

So does this novel from 1961 hold up in 2011? Click the link for my thoughts:

Stranger in a Strange Land: A Personal Reflection on the Fiftieth Anniversary

Comments

Funny, I just started rereading Podykane of Mars.
I enjoyed your column, thanks for sharing your thoughts on the reread. I read the book once, very long ago, probably about twenty years ago when I was first getting into science fiction. I found it boring and a bit over my head, politically, and never thought much of it again. Perhaps I shall have to re-read it now.
If you do try rereading it, keep in mind that it is a product of its times. Much of it comes off very differently today.
