Heinlein – The stars were closed to Max Jones To get into space you either needed connections a membership in the Guild or a whole lot money than Max the son of a widowed poor mother was every going to have What The stars were closed to Max Jones To get into Golden Age of Heinlein this is the so called juvenile written Heinlein always claims just as much for adults that started them all and made Heinlein a legend for multiple generations of reader. Heinlein's anachronistic elements are often recognized when dealing with technical issues Other aspects are less obvious I've lived in the Ozarks area the boundaries between mountain ranges are necessarily nebulous I was once lost in a state park I made my way out by following excessively bright lights to a prison That was some years ago but things have gotten worse everywhere There are no longer any places that get dark at night Possibly with the exception of Arizona where the astronomers have a fairly effective lobby Researchers on nocturnal animals worry that the excess light will contribute to the dangers to species often already critically endangered But just try to FIND any research on the impact of excess light on circadian rhythms and on photosynthesis as well And if you DO find any please tell me about themHeinlein's dystopian vision of a society controlled by hereditary Guilds seems to have been cut from whole cloth I don't know of ANY source that even proposed such a thing Other aspects of the galactic civilization are essentially not developed at all The ship's navigational problems are used as a pretext to avoid examining the society but there's not much discussion of it when the ship is on its normal course eitherOne interesting note Max's eidetic memory is uite rightly dismissed as a parlor trick It turns out to be a useful trick with the loss of reference sources but it has no greater utility than that I disagree however with the notion that such parlor tricks are necessarily combined with autism Heinlein even goes so far as to use the derisory term 'idiot savant' which is no longer used precisely because it's so dismissive and offensive It's essentially a double whammy People dismiss those who can't communicate well what they know it's not really possible to determine what they DO know because of the communications difficulties Then when a few do find ways to communicate really uite remarkable abilties they're doubly stigmatizedMany people with otherwise uite ordinary talents have these 'stupid human tricks' special skills Too often however because they fear such stigmatization andor exploitation they suppress or marginalize their skills In the book Max is abashed when he realizes that what he can do is considered extraordinary and he uite rightly fears that he will be ghettoized on account of it His luck at finding people who can see past the stigma to the whole person beyond doesn't mitigate the fact that the society as a whole can't get past the 'freak show' mentality

The stars were closed to Max Jones To get into space you either needed connections a membership in the Guild or a whole lot money than Max the son of a widowed poor mother was every going to h. Astrogators in spaceOne of Heinlein's earlier juvenile novels this is one where RAH describes in great detail the machinations of the astrogators uite a bit dated now with computers and it is amusing to imagine as he did a trio of math geniuses sitting in chairs with slide rules charting out a space ship's course but that was part of his charm Some thin characterizations along with some very 1950sish language but Heinlein was working his very peculiar magic and this is all the while a fine sci fi story 2019 Re readWas this 1953 publication an influence on Star Trek the original series and Lost in Space Was Max Jones an idea for James KirkTheir characters are very different but this bildungsroman does follow our protagonist from farm boy to ship’s captain in spectacular fashion in a way that would be suited to fiery Kirk The description of 3D chess would indicate the possibility that Roddenberry and crew had read this Likewise getting some decimals misplaced resulted in the spaceship in Heinlein’s story to be lost could have been a seed for the later 1965 TV seriesHeinlein published his twelve Scribner’s juvenile books between 1947 and 1958 and this one is the seventh Starman Jones describes Max Jones’ journey from the hills of the Ozarks to command of the Starship Asgard and the many adventures he had on the wayThis is packed full of Heinlein’s campy wisecracks and homey logic but also tells a damn fine SF story and one particularly enjoyable to anyone who’s stood watch of naval ships as RAH adds his personal knowledge of all things nautical and in his own inimitable way
