Robert A. Heinlein Profile Picture

Internationally recognized as a seminal science fiction writer, Robert A. Heinlein is often associated with fellow masters Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke. An essayist, novelist, and short story writer, Robert Anson Heinlein also wrote using the pen names Anson MacDonald, Lyle Monroe, John Riverside, Caleb Saunders, and Simon York. Born in 1907 in Butler, Missouri, he earned his B.S. in naval engineering from the U.S. Naval Academy. Heinlein served as an officer in the Navy, assigned to an aircraft carrier and later to a destroyer, where he worked in radio communications. He was discharged from the Navy for health reasons, and worked in various professions, including real estate sales and silver mining. Heinlein began writing to pay his mortgage. He later served in the Navy during World War II, while continuing to write fiction and non-fiction. Heinlein was named the first Science Fiction Writers Grand Master and won Hugo Awards for four of his novels. Half a century after their publication, three of his books were honored with Retro Hugo Award, given to books published before the Hugo Awards began. Heinlein died in 1988.
