SFWA Grand Master 2011

World Fantasy Award

• Best short story, “Graves” (1993)

“The Forever War” is a classic for a reason. The issues it has are so outweighed by its impact that any gripes seem inconsequential.

Joe Haldemen understood the heart of great scifi: how the intersection of technology and humanity effects the individual. That is the beating heart of this work.
