Short Stories of
Robert A. Heinlein: "Life Line" and "All You Zombies"


Discussion leader for this event: Robin Chin

Event Details



In "Life Line" (1939), Heinlein's first short story, man invents a machine that can tell when a person is going to die. At the opposite end of his career, in 1959, Heinlein wrote "All You Zombies" in which a man is his own father, mother, and mysterious recruiter. Join us for a discussion of the relationship between the body, time, and technology in these works.

The stories will be available at the English Department Front Desk one week in advance.
