Libertarian review of Robert A. Heinlein’s classic 1963 novel Podkayne of Mars

Matthew Alexander of the blog Prometheus Unbound: A Libertarian Review of Fiction and Literature recently posted an interesting review of Podkayne of Mars (1963), a classic science fiction novel penned by Robert A. Heinlein that details the life of Podkayne Fries, a girl on the verge of womanhood who dreams of becoming an interplanetary starship captain.

In short, Alexander, a graduate of The Ohio State University who has published a work of libertarian science-fiction titled Wĭthûr Wē (2010), concludes that “Podkayne of Mars holds a good deal for the libertarian to consider, and while the story is not fantastic, it is solid enough, especially when combined with that Heinlein prose and voice.”
