I'm sure we could integrate it somewhere!
I have been giving that matter some serious thought during wakeful periods of the night.

I may open a thread somewhere more appropriate for such discussion.

Bit more of a contrarian with Stranger In A Strange Land.

His Dirty Old Man period was regrettable.
I have to admit to reading some of his DOM material as a dirty young teen. I especially loved Glory Road, and "Star".

At the time I was also wondering if I would go to "The 'Nam" in a year or so. I joined the army reserve to train-up. ( This was not patriotism, or indeed approval for the Viet war, but rather, survival. For I knew even at that tender age, that well trained soldiers tend to survive {statistically speaking} than soldiers with less training.

If I was called up, I intended to serve, but not go to Vietnam. How that would have worked out in practice was not clear, but in hindsight I probably would have spent time in a military prison.
