Subject: RE: BS: Growing Up SF
I was in Summer Camp waiting for my turn at the firing range. Started a kid's book called: "Tom Corbett - Space Cadet" and never saw it again. Later in the school library I saw a book called "Space Cadet" but this one was different, by a guy name of Heinlein. Read everything by him I could get until I was turned off by "Farnham's Freehold" which was awful but still readable. Then "Stranger In a Strange Land" which can be read as hippie chic or fascist manifesto.
