The Door Into Summer
is the title of a book by Robert Heinlein that I liked a lot when I was much younger. It is about a cat (sort of), and the title comes from the cat asking to be let out and when it rains asking at different doors, hoping to find the door into summer. Anyway, this post is not about that book, but about another book of his, which is going into the personal library I am building, Stranger in a Strange Land. Norm has this by the Australian clever bloke Russell Blackford on that book. I used to read a lot of science fiction, them days. My brother and I used to get the Gollancz ones with the yellow covers out of the library and devour them every week. Not now. But some of it can change your life. An easy question for you lovely readers: what film was based on a book called (my favourite science fiction title I think) "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep"?
