    More Information:

    "...Heinlein interrupted work on what would become Stranger in a Strange Land (1961) to write Starship Troopers (1959), which argues the necessity and worth of service, especially military service. Its graphic battles with the alien Bugs led Scribner's to reject the book, and it was published by Putnam..." (Gunn: The New Encyclopedia of Science Fiction 221)
