Heinlein Society At LoneStarCon

The Heinlein Society participated at LoneStarCon 3, the 71st World Science Fiction Convention, held in San Antonio, TX, August 29th-September 3rd . The Society shared a table in the exhibit area of the con space with the Heinlein Prize Trust, with the two Heinlein legacy organizations teaming up to educate con-goers on Robert and Virginia Heinlein, and the ongoing activities by both organizations. Additionally, oodles of candy was handed out to keep the fens energy levels up for the long weekend of con-going.

Heinlein themed badge ribbons were distributed, including “I Grok Heinlein” (Stranger in a Strange Land), “TANSTAAFL” (The Moon is a Harsh Mistress), and “Are you a COWARD –Glory Road” (Glory Road).  All of the ribbons were met with enthusiasm by the con-goers, but the TANSTAAFL ribbon was a clear favorite and one of the most worn ribbons at the convention. A wealth of flyers about the Society’s activities were also distributed to the fans, and several new memberships and renewals were taken.

The Heinlein Society’s party was held on Friday night, and was combined with the Annual Keith Kato Chili Party this year.  Many fans and Friends of Robert attended. The pro author contingent was also well represented.

The Annual Meeting of the Heinlein Society was held on Sunday afternoon...

Heinlein For Heroes

A program for placing books, especially Heinlein books, into the hands of active military personnel—particularly those deployed—and into the hands of veterans in veterans’ hospitals.

Organizations already exist who identify military commands and hospitals with a declared desire for various kinds of reading material. Science fiction is one category always in high demand.
