The Year of the Jackpot

Robert A. Heinlein


I much prefer Heinlein’s novels, but this novella is a good read. I had read it before but forgotten it over the years. Potiphar is a statistician who tracks cycles of ‘funny business’, noting they all peak together, which he call the ‘Year of the Jackpot.”

Statistics aside, his interest in Meade, a woman who stripped down to her skin at a bus stop, makes their relationship a bittersweet one.

Potiphar knows where things are trending, and it isn’t pretty.
