Time Magazine 1988: Robert A. Heinlein Obituary

Today is the 25th anniversary of the death of Robert A. Heinlein, one of the greatest scifi authors ever, and a personal favorite of mine. Thanks to my father, I grew up reading his books and still have a shelf full of them. I’ve always recalled a strange thing that Time magazine stuck in his obituary and I looked it up recently to verify my memory:

Yes, they listed time travel as a “future commonplace” that Heinlein included in his fiction. I guess that is, technically, true.
