    As my first foray into Haldeman's writing, I was swept away with his twists and turns and original plots. Some stories were not overtly science fiction and I appreciated them equally. I was quite impressed with how much he could convey with so little and can't wait to pick up a novel to see where he takes me in a longer format. His experience as a Vietnam veteran really makes for a richer read when he writes about soldiers or some of the scenes where different cultures interact. The very first story is told from three different perspectives by a group of anthropologists who are doomed and desperately trying to record their experiences with a group of natives who have turned savage. It grabs you and takes you on a gritty dark ride and really sets you up for a great experience with the rest of the book which isn't necessarily as dark.

    His second (of 7) collections, and first really first-rate one. Haldeman was hitting his stride then, and he'd published such classics as• A !Tangled Web • (1981) • novelette• You Can Never Go Back • [Mandella] • (1975) • novella• More Than the Sum of His Parts • (1985)Recommended.Complete TOC and publication info: http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/pl.cgi?9447

    A great collection of SiFi short stories by My Favorite modern SiFi writer. Haldeman always does an excellent job no matter if it is hi novels or short stories. My favorite in this collection was a novella that was ties in with his Forever War novel. Very Recommended

    The Forever War impressed me so much that I've favored obtaining books by Haldeman over ones by most other science fiction writers. This collection, while I remember the cover, left me with no outstanding memories except of not much liking the poetry within it.

    Excellent stories and poems. One of the great sci-fi writers.I'll certainly be searching out his other works.

    Joe Haldeman is one of the best, right after the holy trinity of Clarke, Heinlein and Asimov.Any Joe Haldeman is worth reading, most of the time it is fantastic!

    The three best stories in this book are: "Seasons," "A !Tangled Web," and "More Than the Sum of His Parts." The other stories are very good, but those three rocked.

    Gotta love Joe Haldeman. His greatest is still probably The Forever War, but this collection of short stories was really good too.

    Joe Haldeman is one of a shrinking pool of SF authors I still enjoy reading. A great collection of short stories and an alternate section of "The Forever War".
