A professor recently asked me to suggest “important novels written by American conservatives” for a reading list he plans to put together. I’m still gathering my thoughts, but one name that will make the grade is Robert A. Heinlein. His best books are his most right-leaning ones: Starship Troopers and The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress. I wrote about Heinlein for National Review on the occasion of his centenary. As a sidebar, I presented a list of conservative SF titles.
