Amazing .... and I just left off reading Heinlein after what I considered to be his late "disappointments."
Honestly .... for a long while I thought it was just "me." That, somehow I'd lost my taste for Heinlein. Then, I just chalked it up to senility ... but that made me pissed off at whoever was publishing what read like trash (compared to the real Heinlein that I was used to).
I'm just somehow relieved to know that it really was something physical that could be treated. Now, I just wished he'd lived long enough to rework the few books that suffered.
