Format: Hardcover
Joe Haldeman views writing as a craft, so its no surprise that an anthology of short stories edited by Haldeman would be chosen for their quality and originality. Although Haldeman may be best known for his Science Fiction works such as The Forever War, he has also written about his personal experiences in Vietnam ( War Stories ). The short stories in this collection are not "shoot'em up" stories, but thoughtful discussions of the future and philosophies of war. Haldeman and Greenberg have chosen their authors well and developed an excellent collection of short stories. Well worth reading!

I'm not a huge Sci-fi reader, but this collection was a fun read. Like any compilation, it's a mixed bag; a wide range of style and subject-matter (other than the unifying theme of war). There were some good, some great, and a few I could do without... worth picking up.

Format: Hardcover
The cover here looks like space soldiers out of a computer game, or something like that. However, this is not, given Haldeman as an editor, a kill-'em-all marines in space sort of thing. Only one story really has military geek technobabble to the max, otherwise it is is all pretty good, and Rusch's story is excellent and chilling.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
While the stories were not of the usual military-oriented variety, by and large the whole book was unfulfilling.
