    The Starship Troopers reboot is said to be more faithful to Robert Heinlein's original book, but is that a good idea? https://t.co/suPzPMWCAz

      The movie was such a huge difference in tone and message from the novel, it was a bit of a shock. But I confess I still enjoy it for its cheesiness (although Heinlein must have rolled in his grave the day it was released). I just watched Starship Troopers II last Saturday. Not as good but at least it is a much darker movie. Cookie cutter plot, but at least the bugs were creepy. Still keeping an eye out for ST III movie.

    No author had more influence on The Original Star Trek than Robert Heinlein. https://t.co/wmPqfzZD7t

    Could we be seeing a TV adaptation of Heinlein's The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress? I'd love to see one! http://t.co/npXI1IwuNv

    I never knew that Robert A. Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land spawned a real church. People are weird. http://t.co/HuIf9d4nWE

      Great find BTW cap. I was mesmerized by this church when I saw your post and read most of the article and even perused the church’s website. Heinlein would have been amused at all the politics and breakups that occurred with this Church over the years.

      This is one of my favorite books, but realizing that it helped inspire Charles Manson is disturbing. That like Scientology it inspired a ‘religion’ is bad too.

        Don’t let it bother you. Manson was (is) a nutcase and just because he found inspiration in something does not mean that something should in any way be blamed. He idolized the Beatles, but that wasn’t their fault.

    I wonder what Iranians will think of Heinlein now that a Persian edition of Starship Troopers has been released. http://ow.ly/rKCsB

    I wonder how big the market is for the 46-volume, leather-bound collection of all of Robert Heinlein’s work. http://t.co/HLI6ME80
