A long-lost novel by Robert Heinlein will appear later this year. Discovered among his pairs by Heinlein scholar Robert James, For Us, the Living was written in 1938, when Heinlein was 31. The story revolves around naval airman Perry Nelson, who crashes his car in 1939 and awakens in 2086. The novel foreshadows many of Heinlein's later themes-and is explicit enough sexually so that it could not have teen sent through the mails legally in 1938. It will to published in November of this year by Scribner's, with a foreword by Spider Robinson. More information can be found at http://www.heinleinsociety.org/newsFUTL.html
