A Heinlein Concordance ©2004 M.E.Cowan

This Concordance provides definitions for the people, places, and things in Robert Heinlein's novels and "Future History" stories. It contains two sets of pages: alphabetical lists, and lists organized by book/story. Use the links at the top to view the alphabetical pages. To view the "story" pages click the story name in the list in the left sidebar.

If all or part of an entry label is a hyperlink, it's a reference to something in the real world. Some of the references are obvious, for example, a spaceship named after Albert Einstein. But many are obscure enough that the descriptions of the real-world references might make fascinating reading.

The following novels and stories are included in the Concordance. (All novels except For Us, the Living and The Pursuit of the Pankera are included, but only those short stories related to the Future History.)

This Concordance has not had significant update since 2013 and is provided as a convenience by The Heinlein Society.
