Mystery/thriller writer Robert Crais, a Heinlein fan (who

WWII Medal of Honor recipient Rodger Young is commemorated in
Starship Troopers, both with a

but it was by far the best biography I found on the net.) The
Ballad link contains the lyrics and several audio files of the
ballad in different formats.

A review and commentary site with a cheerful mix of science
fiction-related and other topics. Book reviews cover current
