"It's the reason we hang out in bars... 'cause we can't find our way to the stars."

Variable Star; interview with Spider Robinson and David Crosby. (Yes, THAT David Crosby.)

So award winning SF author Spider Robinson took detailed plot notes and character sketches which Robert Heinlein drafted up in 1955, and turned them into into a book. Along the way, he enlisted folk-rock legend David Crosby to help. Here is a nice interview with the two of them.

I am a huge Heinlein fan and I am really worried about this one. If I read it and it doesn't seem like a Heinlein book I shall find the writer and club him like a baby seal!
