The Crazy Years...

In several of Robert Heinlein's books he would use a reference of "The Crazy Years". He even wrote stories that took place IN that particular timeline.

Now this was a time along his alternate history stories where religion and politics were so goddam insane it scared the shit out of the normal rational folk...

I think we're about there... Jesus. People are fucking insane!

I'm not sure whether I'm glad "The Admiral" died before he got to see it come to fruition, or glad that the old coot did die before that...

Be that as it may, I’d still kind of like to see what he'd have to say about the current crap going on today...

Haven't read it, but was he forecasting the future based on current trends of his time?

Also, have you read Snow Crash?

He was writing some very popular science fiction. Not necessarily forecasting the future, but who knew!?!

Read snow crash. Pretty sure I own it here somewhere. Liked it. And whole bunch of Stephenson's other offerings as well.

Yes, probably, especially if you have Dune!

Hah! I had Dune. But alas. I never really thought Frank was that great as an author. He's great for some folks, just not for me.

Well, I don't think he's the best. Also, don't ask me to find the Dune book! But I know it's here somewhere :P
