Remembrance/Veterans’ Day! Today Steve remembers a trip to the hometown of the Dean of SF Writers, Robert Anson Heinlein, himself a veteran of the US Navy (both Steve and RAH). It was an interesting pilgrimage.
Steve continues his F&SF reviews with the current (Mar-Apr) issue. He finds it a nice blend of SF (even some “hard SF”) and fantasy (even “hard” fantasy!).
In this redo of his fifth column from 2013, Steve talks about visiting Butler, Missouri, the town where Robert A. Heinlein was born. Are they proud of him? Heck, yes!

For his final column of 2018, Steve dives into the Nov./Dec. issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, which everyone just calls “F&SF.” It tastes great and is more filling with fewer calories than competing magazines!

Steve reviews the current F&SF. It’s still a great magazine! Get it now while it’s still on the stands!
