John Scalzi the author of "Old Mans War" writes an open letter to Joe Haldeman in this edition of "The Forever War" in which he gives praise for this book and says its better than his book. I have to disagree I think the ''Old Mans War" is by far the better book.

I disagree with the reviewer who thinks this book isn't as good as Scalzi's Old Man's War. I like both books. This book reflects its having been written by a former soldier in the Viet Nam War. The war it describes is depressing and pointless. I think he's entitled to present it that way. The characters are developed, there are interesting scientific concepts explored fictionally. I'm glad I finally read it. I now plan to read other books Haldeman has written to see how his writing has developed. I love Scalzi's Old Man's War series too, no question. I say: enjoy both!
