Phil | 1125 comments I just saw that Bill Patterson died on April 21. His second volume of Heinlein's biography is due out June 3. Part 1 was nominated for a Hugo in 2011.
I really enjoyed and learned a lot from his first book and am particularly saddened that he didn't live to receive the accolades due his hard work.
My thoughts go out to his family.

James H. (jhedrick) | 128 comments Agreed. I'm really looking forward to Vol. 2 of the Heinlein biography. Check out Prophet's of Science Fiction if you liked the biography. Ridley Scott produced set of 1hr biographies on folks like Heinlein, Asimov, etc.
