Red Planet was commendable, yet lacked the entertainment and penetration of Starship Troopers, Space Cadet, and Stranger in a Strange Land. Due to the difference in style and age of Heinlein compared to Asimov and Clarke, I would maintain that he does deserve the Grand Master designation, yet I caution you to be selective with his novels. The military science fiction novels are generally more entertaining, while preserving that contentious philosohy that his uniquley Heinlein.
