I should point out that the unedited version of _Stranger in a Strange
Land_ was published after Heinlein's death by his wife, Virginia. In
this particular instance, it wasn't ego on the part of the author.
Having read both versions, I have to go with the original.
I only ever read one Stephen King book: the expanded version of _The
Stand_. I never felt the need to read the original to compare. In
fact, I never felt the need to read another King book.
Should I read any version of _Shadow of the Moon_?
