One of the very best must-read SF novels of all time.
Joe Haldeman was born in Oklahoma in 1943 and studied physics and astronomy before serving as a combat engineer in Vietnam, where he was severely wounded and won a Purple Heart. THE FOREVER WAR was his first SF novel and it won both the Hugo and Nebula Awards, a feat which THE FOREVER PEACE repeated. He is also the author of, among others, MINDBRIDGE, ALL MY SINS REMEMBERED, WORLDS APART and WORLDS ENOUGH AND TIME.
It is to the Vietnam War what CATCH-22 was to World War II, the definitive, bleakly comic satire. - Thomas M Disch.An engrossing, poignant epic. - San Francisco Examiner.A brilliant novel. - Booklist.A vastly entertaining trip. - New York Times.
