I'm curious what anyone hear makes of Heinlein's use of the Mikado's "Little List" in Stranger In A Strange Land.
He also wrote under the name of John Riverside (Chester Anderson wrote under the name John Valentine and spent time in Riverside as well).
Though Robert Heinlein's initials do appear in the Desk Poem sign-off.
Stranger In A Strange Land pops up in the Manson canon as I believe Ed Sanders cites it as one of Charles' "sleazoid-inputs" if I remember correctly (Disregard if I do not.)
A book entitled "Weird Scenes Inside The Canyon" by David McGowan also hints that Heinlein's Laurel Canyon address was the epicentre of some of the strangeness in the area. I'll admit I didn't finish that one yet.
It's really interesting that Heinlein is still on the Navy's reading list- Starship Troopers is suggested reading in regards to leadership by the USNA.

Thanks for your contribution GenZ , and '' Stranger in a Strange Land '' looks like an interesting possible influence on the Zodiac .
I shall have to examine the context of The Mikado 's '' Little List '' , in the story line .
Together with Arthur C Clarke and Isaac Asimov , Robert Heinlein is seen as an outstanding contributor to the genre of Science Fiction , of his generation , and following in the footsteps of the founders , such as H G Wells .
The Zodiac was undoubtedly a wide and extensive reader , with Science Fiction an integral part of this span of interest.
'' Starship Troopers '' appears also , to be of curiosity .
It appears in Part 2 "His Preposterous Heritage". Upon learning of Valentine Michael Smith's ability to make things "not", Jubal Harshaw remarks "I've got a little list... they never will be missed." It appears on pg. 125 of my edition.
Rubislaw32: see HMIC about this - OK ?

Sandy: RandolphCarter: all victims different horoscope signs. Darlene Ferrin born on cusp of Cancer and Leo. Sorry but Darlene was not born on the cusp Cancer and Leo, she was born under the cusp of Pisces and Aries. Her birthday is in March not July.

Rubislaw32: Thanks for the Blackfoot Alphabet tip , Guest 123 .This could be of interest , with the Z148 cipher text . Given a link to the Karl Werner murders , Z148 is likely to be Zodiac authentic . Nice spot .

Guest123: Most of the people murdered have double letters in their name. Is it a coincidence? Is it deliberate?

Guest123: Look at the Blackfoot alphabet. Some of the letters look like the symbol in one or more of the cyphers.

Handyman: ricardo; if the watch is as a compass and the math addad , 36/42 or between its centre 40/41 would or could this also be used at the geographical end of the puzzle , I heard the trick is to find his north ? seeing as the numbers are a key. dvk

RandolphCarter: It is worth it to look at subsidies received by the Lykes Steamship Co since the foundation of the Maritime Administration and notice all of those extra digits. I believe I've made my point and will digress.

RandolphCarter: Were there any significant astronomical events of 2019 Zodiac would have observed? What were his thoughts on the Ultima Thule Flyby? Randolph Carter smiled to himself in the Strange High House In The Mist that night and thought of sunken Uralia.

RandolphCarter: The irony of reward money is there must be a world left to spend it in. How deep does Zodiac go and will there still be a bank to go to? The clear headed researcher must remind himself of this.
