Lagniappe: Heinlein vs. Golding

It seems obvious that Tunnel in the Sky is a direct response to William Golding's Lord of the Flies. Indeed, I imagine Heinlein putting down Golding's book and heading straight for the typewriter grinding his teeth and muttering, "Revert to savagery my ass!"
Jo Walton,, Beware of Stabor!
This makes me laugh every time.
