An award-winning visionary and true master of worlds and wonders, the man whom author David Brin calls “one of the best prophetic writers of our times,” once again demonstrates the breathtaking scope and startling power of his imagination, transporting listeners across space and time, into the heart of darkness and the soul of madness.

From the spine-tingling account of an intergalactic poacher’s rite of passage to an erotic and ultimately uplifting modern fable of inner scars and otherworldly transformation, here are fifteen remarkable tales, including the classic novella The Hemingway Hoax. These are stories that sing with a unique and haunting voice—stories of war’s monsters, of brutal art and lost stars, and a brief, miraculous moment called childhood, when a young girl can actually fly.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A stunner…Rich in characterization and insights into the creative process…The introduction and notes that round out the collection say much about the process of turning ideas into stories—a transformation at which, apparently, Haldeman is still a master.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Enough vision to rock the cosmos…Written with a powerful clarity and a subtle imagination.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “Throughout, the richly drawn characters are generally ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. A strong contender for SF collections, this will work in general short story collections as well.”

    Library Journal

  • “Impressive…[Haldeman] is at his best when his attention is fully engaged—Hemingway, Vietnam, alienation—and when he allows his own hopes and fears to communicate to the reader.”

    Kirkus Reviews

    " A collection of short stories by Joe Haldeman, I absolutely loved them! The Hemingway story was awesome. I had never heard of Joe Haldeman before, I will most certainly be looking for more of his work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leonard Jacobs | 7/12/2013

    " While looking for the Forever War at my local library I stumbled on this collection short stores. Entertaining and imaginative & a great holdover until Forever War comes back available. And it is great to read a physical book after reading a number of eBooks on my Nook. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 6/20/2013

    " A collection of short stories including the novella "The Hemingway Hoax." All were very readable. Some were slightly pointless in my opinion, but others made up for it. His straightforward style makes for easy and quick reading. "
