The Forever War – $1.99 special offer

My favorite book: The Forever War by Joe Haldeman is on a special offer on Amazon.com for $1.99. Unfortunately, it’s not on offer in the UK, and that probably means everywhere except the US.

I read a copy of The Forever War in my local library when I was about 14, and it had such a profound effect on me that… well, I now write science fiction novels for a living. It’s one of the classic military SF novels. Scandalously it was out of print for a long while, and I spent years chasing down a paperback copy. With the advent of eBooks, that shameful neglect of great literature should be a thing of the past.

Here’s the link to the US Kindle store.  Do check the price as the deal will change without warning. I recommend adding this classic to your collection.

Thanks to Pat for updating me with info on this.

      Thanks for the update, Pat. My paperback copy is in the attic. I’m going to dig that up and treat myself to a re-read over the summer… unless there’s a Kindle offer in the UK, in which case I’ll just buy another copy!

  2. Thanks Tim, I spent the $2 to buy a copy of the book! 🙂
