I don't usually turn to short stories for a good read, but I was completely fascinated and satisfied by this collection of 11 tales and 4 story poems.
Haldeman's unbounded imagination has yielded a variety of most curious beings and circumstances, augmented by many of his personal experiences that sparked or helped to form these vignettes.
I appreciated the biographical insights that he provided in his introduction and in the brief addenda that follow each piece.
Some short, some quite long, but each one a thought provoker with haunting images that will continue to pull at you after you believed that you'd laid this one down.

I read "The Accidental Time Machine" by Joe Haldeman and enjoyed it. I bought this thinking it would be as good. I turned out to be very bland ad boring.

Not every story in Haldeman's new short story collection "None So Blind" is great, but all are interesting because of notes by Haldeman explaining his intentions and what in each story draws from his life and what has been invented.<b>
Of course, Haldeman, science fiction's most famous veteran, has plenty of tales here that draw from his Vietnam experience. In "Images" what a battle-scarred 'Nam veteran sees while he secretly watches the actresses of his theater company undress makes up for the somewhat contrived plot of oh-so-compatible love. "The Monster" is a Lovecraftian tale about an imprisoned man narrating how he discovered an unearthly presence in a remote area, Vietnam, and how it destroyed his life. Of course, he comes to a bad end. The story is also interesting for what Haldeman has to say about the reality of the much glamorized Long Range Recon Patrols of the Vietnam War. "Graves" is the most vivid distillation of Haldeman's war experiences even though he says he made

Joe Haldeman is probably the best active living writer of science fiction. He also writes much more like a poet than other SF writers. He never uses too many words, and never too few. He write to get a point across, and succeeds much of the time. Of course, because of this, when he fails he misses the mark by a wide margin.
His novels "The Forever War" and "The Hemingway Hoax" are two of the best SF novels of the last half century.
Of course, after reading NONE SO BLIND, you find that Haldeman does write poetry. The collection is more short stories, but the poems in this are very good. My personal favorite of his poems here is "The Homecoming", which many in SF can very much relate too.
But the short story "None So Blind", from which the collection takes it title, is here. And that is a great short story. "The Hemingway Hoax" is also included here, as is "Graves". I am of a younger generation than Haldeman, and you would think a short story set, more or less, in Vietnam wouldn't connect with me. But for some reason, it still gives me the willies.
Haldeman is somebody all intelligent people should be reading. This collection of short works is some of his best stuff.

I wish I could give it 9 out of 10. This is a wonderful collection of short stories, a novella, and poems. The novella, "The Hemmingway Hoax" is quite confusing, but the remaining short stories make up for it, especially the first two. Haldeman can present a very vivid picture using few words, an ability that many authors lack. Also, I don't get around to reading many poems these days, but the ones contained here are very enjoyable. Read this book!

Haldeman is quickly becoming one of my favorite science fiction authors. This collection of short stories will make you want to burn a sick-day just to be able to stay home and finish it.
I feel I can forgive him for writing Forever Peace now. :)
Haldeman has the nack for describing a lot with very few words; something I wish more authors would do.

The storie's were good with the exception of the Vietnam war referance in most of the storie's. 1 or 2 would have been alright,but not most of them.
