Forever Peace/Haldeman, Joe/Paper/0441005667/S015-D
2043 AD: The Ngumi War rages, fought by "soldierboys" - remote control war machines run by soldiers hundreds of miles away. Julian Class is one of these soldiers, and for him, war is indeed hell. The psychological strain of being jacked-in to his soldierboy - and the genocidal results - are becoming too much to bear. Now he and his lover, Dr. Amelia Harding, have made a terrifying scientific discovery that could literally put the universe back to square one. For Julian, however, the discovery isn't terrifying.

"Though not a sequel to his classic The Forever War... Haldeman's new novel rivals it for emotional power. The Vietnam vet writes with uncommon intelligence and acuity about the terror of war and the horror of the human heritage in the middle of the next century." - Publishers Weekly.
"Mature and reflective... There are narrative kicks and hard SF pleasures in Forever Peace...they all point gracefully towards the depiction of a world where peace is inevitable, and as profoundly hard-wired into the human psyche, as war has always been." - Washington Post Book World.
"Haldeman has long been one of our most aware, comprehensive, and necessary writers. He speaks from a place deep within the collective psyche and, more importantly, his own. His mastery is informed with a survivor's hard-won wisdom." - Peter Straub.
