What do /hobby/ thinks of Heilein? Was he libertarian that keeps self-inserting himself and his wife into his works like some of his books portray?
On the subject of sci-fi, I would say that my Favorite would be the Iron Heel. Where it portrays a failed socialist movement in the 20th century getting crushed by the world oligarchy with commentary by a socialist future historian. And the amazing thing is that somehow it managed to predict the world today better than any other dystopian novel could in 1908 before ww1 and the first socialist state in the world.
