I don't know when he had his stroke, but when I read my roommate's copy of "Starship Troopers" in college I distinctly remember thinking the book was just needed some goose-stepping and a reference or two to the "Father Planet" to put a bow around its message.
Had I been younger when I read it, I probably would have just thought it was cool how they killed all those bugs.
