NONE SO BLIND by Joe Haldeman
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: May 1, 1996

Another story collection from Haldeman (Dealing in Futures, 1985, etc.), this one comprising 11 tales, 1986-94, and four ``story poems.'' Pride of place goes to the Hugo and Nebula-winning novella, ``The Hemingway Hoax,'' of which the 1990 Kirkus review of the novel version declared: ``Literary games and multidimensional meddling. . .so strong are Haldeman's warmth and charm, so deep his knowledge and love of Hemingway, that all this hanky-panky remains enjoyable even at its most improbable.'' Also impressive are the Hugo award-winning title piece, about genius, unlikely lovers, and rewiring the human brain; and ``Graves,'' a Vietnam horror yarn that won both a Nebula and a World Fantasy award.

1968 by Joe Haldeman
Released: June 1, 1995

Science-fiction writer Haldeman (Worlds Enough and Time, 1992, etc.) unsuccessfully grinds a big political ax on too small a stone, in a novel about the traumas of the Vietnam War—also the subject of his first non-sf novel, The War, in 1972. Spider begins his Vietnam tour as a clerk in Graves Registration, but is soon sent to the jungles. Read full book review >

WORLDS ENOUGH AND TIME by Joe Haldeman
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: May 15, 1992

Third of Haldeman's trilogy, as insipid and lackluster as Worlds and World Apart, except where the closing chapters burst into technicolor with another memorable set of Haldeman's patented all-but-omnipotent aliens. The trilogy's protagonist, Marianne O'Hara, leaves Earth and its orbiting Worlds aboard a huge interstellar ship, Newhome (Earth, ravaged by nuclear war and disease, will take decades to recover).
