Some of his unusual fiction is available in a collection from Small Beer Press.
On Oddcast #67, the Liars Club interviews Science Fiction Grand Master Joe Haldeman and his wife Gay Haldeman about Joe’s seminal SF novel The Forever War, which won both the Nebula Award and Hugo Award, and has been in print continuously since 1974; about landing in an MFA program in Iowa; and about writing fiction while overly caffeinated. It’s a hilarious and informative dialogue all the way.
