Notes
“Heinlein in Dimension” was published in 1968 by Advent Publishers. Alexei Panshin, later joined by his wife, Cory, continued his career of Heinlein criticism as part of other works as well --with “The World Beyond the Hill”, 1989, being the most prominent example not referenced in the materials above.
