Battlefields Beyond Tomorow: Science Fiction War Stories
Review Date: 11/28/2009


* Superiority (Arthur C Clarke)
* Single Combat (Joe Green)
* Committee of the Whole (Frank Herbert)
* Ender's Game (Orson Scott Card): a classic, and in some ways I prefer the short story. I've read the extended series of novels a few years ago, but they're probably worth revisiting at some point.
* Hero (Joe E. Haldeman), later became The Forever War.
* The Survivor (Walter F. Moudy): I have strong memories of this story from reading this anthology as a child. This is still a good story.
* The Last Objective (Paul Carter)
* What Do You Want Me to Do to Prove Im Human Stop (Fred Saberhagen)
* Hangman (David Drake): this one is included in Volume 1 of the Complete Hammers Slammers.
* The Night of the Trolls (Keith Laumer): this was a really good story about Bolos -- good enough to send me out to buy some more Bolo books, which I will now have to add to my reading queue. This story was later expanded into The Stars Must Wait, which I didn't think was nearly as good as the short story.
* The Nuptial Flight of the Warbirds (Algis Budrys): this story was out of place with the rest of the collection, poorly written, and not very entertaining. I particularly didn't like how it changed plot flow literally mid sentence without warning. I had to read that page three times to work out what was happening.
* Mirror, Mirror (Alan E. Nourse)
* The Miracle Workers (Jack Vance)
* Memorial (Theodore Sturgeon)
* Shark (Edward Bryant)
* ...Not a Prison Make (Joseph P. Martino): the ending came to suddenly in this story, but gosh its a good ending.
* Hawk Among the Sparrows (Dean McLaughlin): this story reminds me strongly of the Axis of time stories from John Birmingham. This short story of course came first, and is a lot simpler in its examination of issues surrounding modern military hardware "falling through time" into previous wars.
* No War, or Battle's Sound (Harry Harrison)
* The Defenders (Philip K. Dick)
* In the Name of the Father (Edward P. Hughes)
* On the Shadow of a Phosphor Screen (William F. Wu): this one didn't really do anything for me -- the premise that major corporations would be willing to solve disputes based on the outcome of war games seems very weak to me.
* The Specter General (Theodore R. Cogswell): this story is awesome. Loved it.
* Fixed Price War (Charles Sheffield)
* The Long Watch (Robert A. Heinlein)
* The Machine that Won the War (Isaac Asimov): included in Robot Dreams, as discussed in my list of Asimov Robot Stories.
