Robert Heinlein – All You Zombies (1959)

Robert Heinlein‘s short story All You Zombies was first published in the March 1959 issue of Fantasy and Science Fiction magazine. I listened to it on episode 200 of the EscapePod podcast.

All You Zombies is a time travel paradox story about a man writes confessional fiction as an ‘unmarried mother’.

My own story about Robert Heinlein referred to in the podcast is The Dead Science Fiction Writers Workshop.

I recommend Robert Heinlein’s novel Stranger in a Strange Land.
