Short Book Reviews

The Accidental Time Machine by Joe Haldeman - I'm not a huge fan of time travel stories and time travel paradoxes are usually more annoying than entertaining (ie, "omg!" the guy says, "I'm my own mother!".) This book, however, is a page-turning SciFi action/adventure tale that is a consistently enjoyable ride. Haldeman's crystal clear prose is engaging for both SciFi fans and for more mainstream readers. This one is Good Fun!

This is one I have on my bookshelf to read. I really enjoyed Old Twentieth, the only other Haldeman I've read. Glad to hear that this one will be a fun one as well.

Hey Carl,
I've read a few of Haldeman's books, and I think he's quite a reliable entertainer. He may be one of the best mainstream SciFi writers around. I've picked up quite of few of his older paperbacks that I am looking forward to reading :)
