THE FOREVER WAR - Haldeman, Joe - 1975. [1223833]
St. Martin's Press, [1974 i.e. 1975]., New York - Octavo, boards. First edition. Presentation copy to a New York book editor "who made a reasonably good deal --." "Tough, slick narrative of an interstellar war which lasts [over] 1000 years. To the soldier hero, it seems to last about ten years, thanks to the time-dilation effect of faster-than-light travel. Good, realistic, military SF which actually subverts many of the clich├ęs of that category . (he was a Vietnam veteran, which helped). Initially rejected by 18 publishers, it has since sold over a million copies." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), pp. 141-2. Haldeman's first SF novel. Winner of the 1975 Hugo award for best novel. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-479. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, p. 360. Survey of Science Fiction Literature II, pp. 813-8. A fine copy in near fine dust jacket (priced $7.95) with light wear at spine ends and corner tips, several small rub marks along front spine fold, and several small scratches to rear panel.
