I am not surprised about the "too left wing" part. Heinlein's very first book was "For us, the living", a hymn to a glorious collectivist future mixed with that free love, "share your girlfriend" doctrine that Huxley was warning us against in his dystopia "Brave new world".

Heinlein remained pro-Marxist until he made a trip to Russia and came back livid, profoundly disturbed by what he saw.
