Citizen Of the Galaxy

By Heinlein, Robert a




Citizen of the Galaxy is a science fiction novel by Robert A. Heinlein, originally serialized in Astounding Science Fiction (September, October, November, December 1957) and published in hardcover in 1957 as one of the Heinlein juveniles by Scribner's. Influenced by Rudyard Kipling's Kim, the novel, like many of Heinlein's, may also have been influenced by the author's background in and nostalgia for the U.S. Navy.

Pringle, Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, p. 61. First serialized in Astounding magazine. "Early instance of using children's science fiction for explaining and pushing ideas [here, alternate ways of organizing society] rather than merely relating exciting incidents." (Anatomy of Wonder) Between 1947 and 1958, Scribner's brought out one new Heinlein juvenile title a year. (This is the twelfth, of thirteen.) "What they have in common, beginning with the second book in the series, is that they center, not merely on Bildung, but on what C. G.. Jung called the "Individuation Crisis," in which a young person distinguishes himself from the psychological matrices of family and peer group and takes on personal, adult responsibilities. . . . Heinlein had written individuation stories before, but his explorations of this storytelling form extended and enriched the entire field of children's writing. . . . The series of Heinlein's juvenile books is considered by some critics to be the finest and most important portion of Heinlein's entire body of work. They have remained continuously in print for more than fifty years."

CITIZEN OF THE GALAXY

Heinlein, Robert A.

New York: Charles Scribner's Sons - Scribners, 1977. 302 pp. Hudson River Editions. Blue cloth lettered in silver on the spine; peacock blue endpapers; headband. Light edge and corner wear on the dustjacket; no interior markings. In 1974, Robert A. Heinlein was presented with the Nebula Grand Masters Award for lifetime achievement. Thorby is a young, defiant slave boy recently arrived at the slave auction at planet Jubbul's capital Jubbulpore, where he is purchased by an old beggar, Baslim the Cripple, for a trivial sum and taken to the beggar's surprisingly well-furnished underground home. Thereafter Baslim treats the boy as a son, teaching him not only the trade of begging, but also mathematics, history, and several languages, while sending Thorby on errands all over the city, carefully passing along information and keeping track of the comings and goings of starships. Thorby slowly realizes that his foster father is not a simple beggar but is gathering intelligence, particularly on the slave trade.... First Printing - First Thus. Hardcover.
