Review of 'The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag' on 'Goodreads'

3 stars

An enjoyable short story by Heinlein that could just as well have been written by Alfred Bester or A. E. Van Vogt for its questioning of reality and touch of Cosmic Horror. Held my attention because of the gradual revelation, but wouldn’t re-read or recommend to someone over other Heinlein or other shorts.
