Frederik Pohl on Robert A. Heinlein

The wonderful science fiction writer Frederik Pohl talks about his memories of author Robert A. Heinlein on his blog The Way the Future Blogs.

Pohl, in addition to writing his own finely crafted stories, was an editor of Astonishing Stories, Super Science Stories, Galaxy and If magazines.

As editor of the first two magazines, he had the opportunity to publish some of Robert Heinlein's short stories.

He describes his editorial relationship as similar to his own relationship with his Jack Russell terrier: the terrier gets the scraps from meals, and he is happy to have them.
