Joe Haldeman is an American ScienceFiction writer who burst onto the scene with his controversial 1970s novel, ''Literature/TheForeverWar'', which was very loosely based on his experiences in the still-ongoing Vietnam War. The novel won both the {{Hugo|Award}} and UsefulNotes/{{Nebula Award}}s. His later novel, ''Literature/ForeverPeace'', which was unrelated (though a SpiritualSuccessor), also won both those awards. He has written over twenty-five novels, and many short stories. In 2010, he was declared a [[DamonKnightMemorialGrandMasterAward Grand Master]] by the Science Fiction Writers of America.

Added DiffLines:

* NudityEqualsHonesty: In ''Forever Peace'', the heroes discover that mentally linking humans for as long as a month will cause them to become "humanized" and turn pacifistic, even if they were serial killers or psychopaths. Towards the end a large group of war vets and refugees undergo the process, and when the complex is attacked they all strip naked and exit as a crowd to show they mean no harm.

* ApocalypseHow ApocalypseHow/{{Class X-4}}: The possibility of accidentally doing this to ourselves is the focus of ''Forever Peace''. A massive supercollider with a diameter the same as one of Jupiter's moons (being built along said moon's equator) won't just simulate conditions within nanoseconds of the Big Bang -- it'll ''set off'' another Big Bang. Because we now have the ability to annihilate not just ourselves, but possibly the entire universe, the main characters consider themselves under an ethical obligation to explore and perhaps force peace upon humanity through some AppliedPhlebotinum, because ''somebody's'' going to push that button someday. In fact, [[{{Cult}} somebody]] wants to.

* GainaxEnding: Haldeman has written several novels (''Mindbridge'', ''Forever Peace'', ''Worlds'' trilogy) where the plot seems to have come to a halt, and the resolution apparently is to introduce an all-powerful, invisible, sadistic alien that randomly murders and tortures several of the characters. Then this alien wanders off, apparently satisfied it's made its point, whatever that was. Then the plot continues to some anti-climatic 'and life goes on' type of ending.
