Publication
Collection assembled June 1953; “If This Goes On --” was revised and expanded from ca. 33 000 to ca. 55,000 words. The title was suggested by one of the editors, and no one was ever able to reconstruct why; published by Shasta Press in 1953; materials incorporated into The Past Through Tomorrow in 1967. After this collection, tension with his publisher escalated until Heinlein broke off relations entirely and the Future History series publication was never completed
