Waldo — by Robert A. Heinlein


"You must reach for the power and make it serve you. Try."

"I am sorry. I do not know how."

"That is the only trouble. All matters are doubtful, unless one knows. You send your force into the Other World. You must reach into the Other World and claim it."

"Where is this 'Other World,' Grandfather?"

"The Other World," he said presently, "is the world you do not see. It is here and it is there and it is everywhere. But it is especially here." He touched his forehead. "The mind sits in it and sends its messages through it to the body."

"Let the mind be quiet," he directed. "Feel for the power. The Other World is close and full of power. Feel it."

Those words were written before George Lucas was conceived but they might well come from a "Star Wars" script.

Heinlein's "Waldo," a 95-page novella published in 1942, is as fresh in 2007 as it will be in 2107.

I paid one cent for mine at Amazon.

I just checked and there's one for sale right now for a penny.

Dare I say it? — I mean, I already ate a peach (canned, true, but a peach nonetheless) — cheap at twice the price.

Despite long meaning to read that, I just haven't gotten around to it.
