6 Sci-Fi Books for People Who Miss Robert Heinlein
a book list by Tristan Colson, software engineer and avid reader
shelved under Sci Fi & Fantasy
These two authors, John Varley and John Scalzi, have each written three loosely-related sci-fi books that are definitely channeling Robert Heinlein's earlier works (and in Scalzi's case, with a bit of Joe Haldeman, too). All are excellent for those who miss Robert Heinlein, and for anyone just wanting a great sci-fi book to read.
