SF Gateway Omnibus of the Week: Joe Haldeman
We’re at the point in the omnibus programme, where the new releases will be coming less frequently than they have done to date, so while we wait for each new addition to the list, we thought we’d go back and remind you of some of the earlier gems you might have missed. First up . . .
From The SF Gateway, the most comprehensive digital library of classic SFF titles ever assembled, comes an ideal sample introduction to Joe Haldeman, one of science fiction’s most decorated authors.
Joe Haldeman is best known for the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning The Forever War, a novel which draws on his experience as a combat engineer in Vietnam, where he was wounded and earned a Purple Heart. This omnibus collects his later Carmen Dula sequence comprising Marsbound, Starbound and Earthbound, which chart humanity’s response to the challenge of alien contact.
You can find more of Joe Haldeman’s work via his Author page on the SF Gateway website, and read about him in his entry in The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction.
