Dr Usher's thesis, 'Jungian Archetypes in the work of Robert A. Heinlein' at Hull University, England, 1992, spawned this and an article 'Robert A. Heinlein: Theologist?' Foundation # 54. In analytical terms, Robin Usher lays claim to being streets ahead of Heinlein's (1907-88) fellow Americans when it comes to understanding his oeuvre, which began in the 1930s and culminated in the novel written before the author's demise, To Sail Beyond The Sunset (1988), a line taken from English poet laureate, Alfred Lord Tennyson's Ulysses (1833), 'To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths Of all the western stars, until I die.' (l. 60-1)
