Hugo and Nebula Award winner JoeHaldeman is one of the most compellingwriters to emerge from the Vietnam War.

War Stories collects together two novels,several short stories, and two long poemsthat deal explicitly with Haldeman’sVietnam and post-Vietnam experiences.The novel War Year was one of the firstbooks written by Haldeman upon hisreturn from Vietnam, and the novel 1968(which chronicles time in country, aswell as a soldiers return “home”) was notpublished until 1994. These two novelsform compelling bookends to a career’sworth of writing that has been passionatelyengaged with the questions raised by theVietnam War.

War Stories includes the Forever Warnovella, “A Separate War,” as well as threenew author introductions which give somehistorical, personal, and bibliographicbackground to the fiction herein.

The novels and stories in this book havenever been as potent, nor as terriblyrelevant as they are today.
