The Legend of the Panther Girl. Indeed, Haldeman also shares Heinlein's enthusiasm for investigating alternative sexual mores. The homophobic Mandalla doesn't just have to cope with his mother becoming a lesbian. One of the biggest future shocks he receives is to return from a mission and discover that the entire planet has gone gay thanks to selective breeding and eugenics.
Thanks to his desire for women, Mandalla finds himself labelled an "old queer" and in the unusual position of wanting to discover if any of his female shipmates might have a bit of "latent heterosexuality". Plenty of this material is amusing and well-handled. It's certainly an interesting reply to the s military's ban on homosexuality and adds to Mandalla's terrible sense of isolation.

But plenty of it is daft too. Haldeman's future gay men are prone to mincing and wearing make-up — elements that even the author says seem embarrassing to him now. In , he even said: "I'm certain that if I wrote it today, I wouldn't have this feminisation of the gay people.
The Forever War
There are other slightly silly elements to the book. Mandalla's first return to earth is particularly problematic.
A series of deaths and disasters that all fortuitously happen in the short time he is on the planet and not in the preceding 10 years give the section a contrived and overwrought air, while the chaos in society isn't adequately explained or realised. But it's churlish to concentrate on the negative.
Haldeman nods now and again, but that hardly diminishes the power of The Forever War.
