I had no idea about his politics when I decided that he was a rotten writer. Besides, it's not relevant. It's hardly as if his novels had a political point like Ayn Rand's.
His cowriter on the Doom
books, has written some libertarian-flavored sci-fi. His alt-history Moon of Ice
won the Prometheus Award for Best Libertarian Fiction in 1989.
Having read Moon of Ice
, I actually thought Linaweaver's point was that libertarianism was a bad
thing. He posits a United States that turns libertarian in the wake of the New Deal (since it was government overreach), but then the libertarian United States isn't the Arsenal of Democracy in the 1940s so Hitler conquers the world.
