Looking Back at Heinlein’s Red Planet (1949)

Science fiction fan James Wallace Harris takes an emotional look back at Red Planet (1949), by Robert A. Heinlein, in a recent post at his blog Auxiliary Memory. Among his many interesting observations, Harris notes that Red Planet was released recently as an unabridged audiobook from Full Cast Audio and next year, 2009, is the 60th anniversary of the novel’s publication.

As mentioned in my blog post of October 1, 2008, neither Red Planet nor any of Heinlein’s other writings are part of the Visions of Mars library, which is resting comfortably on the Red Planet aboard NASA’s now-deceased Phoenix Mars Lander.
