Robert A. Heinlein: A Reader's Companion is the authoritative reference to all of the literary works of American writer Robert Heinlein, from his first short story written while still a Naval Academy cadet to his final novel. Some two hundred works in all are listed, most with one or more variations such as an original manuscript version and a published version. Each entry of the major works includes complete information about its publication, variants, reprints and all the "curiosities and anomalies" of the work, its genesis and its publishing history.
A complete set of cross-references help the reader both understand the categories of Heinlein's work and quickly locate any work and similar works.
The book is capped off with the New Heinlein Opus List, a detailed record of all of Heinlein's works, their variations and their original publication history.
More than just a scholarly reference, A Reader's Companion is just that: a companion to accompany readers, new and old, through the wonderful and sometimes misleading world of a great American writer's lifetime efforts.
