Robert A. Heinlein was a Hugo award-winning science fiction (sci-fi) writer from the 1930s to the 1980s. Called the dean of science fiction writers, Heinlein was considered one of the 'Big Three' science fiction authors (with Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke). Heinlein started writing science fiction short stories in the 1930s, with his first story Life-Line getting published in John Campbell's Astounding Science Fiction in 1939. He went on to get published in more mainstream magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post in 1947, before writing a series of juvenile novels for Scribner's. Heinlein wrote for them until 1959, when his novel Starship Troopers was rejected for being too controversial. He promptly moved to Putnam and started writing adult novels, beginning with Stranger in a Strange Land! Some of his works include: The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, Time Enough for Love, Red Planet, Podkayne of Mars, and many more. He passed away in 1988 at the age of 80.
