Have Spreadsheet, Will Dabble


It was Robert Heinlein who came up with the snazzy title: Have Spacesuit, Will Travel. That book was one of the last of his juveniles for Scribner. Good SF writer Heinlein. Haven’t read one of his for a while. Still have my original collection of his stuff, along with other greats: Aldiss, Anderson, Asimov, Ballard, Bester, Blish, Bradbury, Brin, Brunner, Budrys… that’s missing out quite a few and there’s plenty more. So many that I’ve long since catalogued them.

I’m prone to spur of the moment projects. This one is, now that I have all my paperbacks to hand (I have a little library!) I’m gong to make a note of ISBN numbers in my catalogue. Should have done it years back but the time was never right, but you know what they say: Have Spreadsheet, Will Dabble. So here’s a glimpse of my library.

btw the Heinlein juveniles:are well worth a read. Check ’em out:

• Space Cadet, 1948

• Red Planet, 1949

• Farmer in the Sky, 1950

• Between Planets, 1951

• The Rolling Stones aka Space Family Stone, 1952

• Starman Jones, 1953

• The Star Beast, 1954

• Tunnel in the Sky, 1955

• Time for the Stars, 1956

• Citizen of the Galaxy, 1957

• Have Space Suit—Will Travel, 1958

That Podkayne of Mars and The Door into Summer don’t feature here:

Podkayne probably belongs there though apparently Heinlein didn’t consider this the case… having said that I believe he changed the ending at the request of his publishers. The Door into Summer was a serial written (for the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction) during his Scribner deal but not for them – it wasn’t edited by them (Heinlein self-edited apparently). Having said that for me, it very much has the feel of his juveniles. Loved them when I read them.
