We've just sent our mammoth The Best of Joe Haldeman to the printer. Appropriately enough, we've just received a pair of glowing reviews for this essential volume:
From Publishers Weekly:
Demonstrating that the hard-to-market novella is perfect for science fiction, this collection of 19 stories by SFWA Grand Master Haldeman (Earthbound) features several tales that bring out his ability to wrap hard science speculation with deep human feeling…
Another (relatively) Old Master, from the generation just after Le Guin, is Joe Haldeman, who has a big retrospective collection out in early 2013. The best story here may be the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novella “The Hemingway Hoax”, but there’s plenty of other first-class work here, including “Hero”, the seed that grew into his famous novel, The Forever War, “For White Hill”, “None So Blind”, “The Mars Girl”, “Sleeping Dogs”, “Anniversary Project”, “Tricentennial”, and “More Than the Sum of His Parts”, as well as stuff a bit removed from his usual science fiction, such as “Manifest Destiny”, a Western, and “Lindsay and the Red City Blues”, a supernatural horror story.
