Old Twentieth by Joe HaldemanThe synopsis attracted my attention - space travel and virtual worlds and I'd always meant to read more Haldeman after enjoying The Forever War. After: I enjoyed it, I checked to see if there was a sequel and was disappointed there wasn't. Some interesting ideas.

The Forever War by Joe HaldemanContinuing with some classic science fiction. Enjoying this so far. Finished: Wow, excellent book. I thought I'd read this as a kid but realised I obviously hadn't, some fascinating ideas about the development of human society. I'm gonna read Forever Peace and see what else Haldeman has written.
