Notes: Working title: Now I Lay Me Conceived as a 2-part serial for Playboy at about 30,000 words; written at about 165,000 words and cut to 157,400 words for publication. After the initial cutting, Heinlein became seriously ill with peritonitis and was unable to complete the revisions; his wife, as his attorney-in-fact, took a cut in advance rather than allow it to be edited by Putnam’s.
