Don Meixner REQ: tamara's song? (30) RE: REQ: tamara's song? 28 Jan 99


Mario,

Heinlein very often used lyrics and poetry in his books. He wrote the poetry and lyrics himself if he attributed them to his character, " Riesling". Riesling was a spacer who was blinded in a reactor accident and then spent the next twenty years bumming rides around the solar system and making up songs. A very definate Woody Guthrie type character. Riesling first appears in RAH's story " The Green Hills of Earth". I know someone made a recording of Heinleins lyrics some years back. Probably a highly collected thing at Sci Fi shows. I've attended a few and never seen one tho'

Good luck with this search.

Don
