When it was first published over 20 years ago, Joe Haldeman's novel won the Hugo and Nebula awards and was chosen Best Novel in several countries. Today, it is hailed a classic of science fiction that foreshadowed many of the futuristic themes of the 1990s: bionics, sensory manipulation, and time distortion. William Mandella is a soldier in Earth's elite brigade. As the war against the Taurans sends him from galaxy to galaxy, he learns to use protective body shells and sophisticated weapons. He adapts to the cultures and terrains of distant outposts. But with each month in space, years are passing on Earth. Where will he call home when (and if) the Forever War ends? Narrator George Wilson's performance conveys all the imaginative technology and human drama of The Forever War. Set against a backdrop of vivid battle scenes, this absorbing work asks provocative questions about the very nature of war.

"William Mandela is a survivor of an alien war that has gone on for hundreds of years. Time-travel paradoxes have turned the young soldier into the oldest man alive, a man who no longer fits in an armed and regulated Earth society. He barely feels comfortable in an army in which he is one of the few heterosexuals left and harsh, alien environments are liable to kill you, even if the aliens don't. George Wilson gives a matter-of-fact reading to a story filled with spectacular action scenes interspersed with the endless boredom of deep space. First published in the 1970s, FOREVER WAR still seems all too possible. M.C. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
