    To Sail Beyond the Sunset by Robert A. Heinlein (sfcat)
    sfcat: These two books are my all time favorites. Both are fictional biographies from Heinlein's Lazarus Long series and will make readers laugh gasp and cry. Fascinating stories of a slightly alternate universe. No question, if a nuclear attack was imminent, I'd sit down and re-read the chapter of Dora's Story.… (more)

Lazarus Long, a man who has lived for centuries and now wants only to die is rescued by his extended family. Lazarus recounts the people that have filled his life through the centuries in his own cantankerous way. But his life isn't over yet.

A fantastic novel that is filled to over flowing by the imagination of Robert Heinlein. The ideas come thick and fast; always thought-provoking and challenging. Highly recommended. ( )

I would so marry Woodrow Wilson Smith, aka Lazarus Long, if I got the chance. (Or at least invite him mattress-dancing.) Love, adventure, sex, time-travel, talking space-yachts and computers with personalities. Heinlein's I Will Fear No Evil is a close second. ( )

The Nebula Award given this book is only understandable in terms of honoring Heinlein's lifetime of contributions to science fiction. It's the sauntering tale of the sybaritic Lazarus Long who ultimately descends into a testosterone besotted adolescent fantasy (even though he's thousands of years old at that point). We may well learn more about the Nebula Award process than about the book's dubious qualities. Like the Academy Awards, it's more about who the author is than the merits of the work. Read it only if you have some motive other than curling up with a good book ( )

Fascinating book, but I think Heinlein was just a wee bit obsessed with sex. ( )

Epigraph
History has the relation to truth that theology has to religion-i.e., none to speak of. --L.L.
Dedication
For Bill and Lucy
First words
As the door of the suite dilated, the man seated staring glumly out the window looked around.
Quotations
People who go broke in a big way never miss any meals. It is the poor jerk who is shy a half slug who must tighten his belt.
A motion to adjourn is always in order.
History has the relation to truth that theology has to religion—i.e., none to speak of.
Early rising may not be a vice ... but it is certainly no virtue. The old saw about the early bird just goes to show that the worm should have stayed in bed.

Book description
The Lives of the Senior Member of the Howard Families (Woodrow Wilson Smith; Ernest Gibbons; Captain Aaron Sheffield; Lazarus Long; "Happy" Daze; His Serenity Seraphin the Younger, Supreme High Priest of the One God in All His Aspects and Arbiter Below and Above; Proscribe Prisoner No. 83M2742; Mr.Justice Lenox; Corporal Ted Bronson; Dr. Lafe Hubert; and others), Oldest Member of the Human Race.
This Account is based principally on the Senior's Own Words as recorded at many times and places and especially at the Howeard REjuvenation clinic and at the Executive Palace in New Rome on Seconudus in Year 2053 After the Great Diaspora (Gregorian Year 4272 of Old Home Terra) - and supplemented by letters and by eyewitness accounts, the whole then arranged, collated, condensed, and (where possible) reconciled with official records and contemporary histories, as directed by Howard Foundation Trustees and executed by the Howard Archivist Emeritus.
the result is of unique historical importance despite the Archivist's decision to leave in blatant falsehoods, self-serving allegations, and many amoral anecdotes not suitable for young persons.
---------------
Capstone of the Future History, climaxing the adventures of the Methuselahs.
