As I said, it has been a long time since I read any Heinlein, so I can't say I remember a great deal about it. If I remember correctly the last book of his that I read was Stranger in a Strange Land
which I read sometime in the mid 60s.
Goodkind, of course I have read more recently and I expect I won't read anything else he has to offer. I got awfully tired of his neo-fascist preaching by the time the series had its final rather disappointing ending.
With Weber I will probably soldier on and see where Mission of Honor takes the series.
