Date of publication[edit]

This article states that "Forever Peace" was published in 1991. User:Hob changed its article to state that it was published in 1997. When was it published? Mr. Jones 20:02, 11 Dec 2004 (UTC)

1997 is the correct year. neckro 19:54, 14 Feb 2005 (UTC)

These do not form a series[edit]

Other than the fact they have similar titles, there is no connection between The Forever War and Forever Peace. How are they part of a series? MK 14:52, 7 Oct 2004 (UTC)

They are by the same author, so putting them on the same page is not so bad. I take your point, though. Mr. Jones 20:02, 11 Dec 2004 (UTC)
I'm unsure of the necessity of this page as well; however, even if it should exist it needs some clarification. I'll make a quick edit to try to clear things up. neckro 19:54, 14 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Why is there a link to an Obama Speech?[edit]

Why does the graphic novel link lead to the wikipedia page for one of Barack Obama's speeches? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:05, 27 July 2010 (UTC)[reply]

Do they take place in the same future universe?[edit]

The page said "Not all of them take place in the same future universe." for a long time. Then it was changed, but "not the three of them" made no sense so I restored that sentence to what it was in the previous (possibly incorrect, but logical) revision. Do only three of them take place in the same future universe? I do not know. Could be. There are exactly 3 novels. (Referencing this edit.) •ː• 3ICE •ː• 02:13, 24 November 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Forever Free follows The Forever War. It is a direct sequel that takes place in the same universe, picking up after the coda at the end of The Forever War and utilizing the same cast of characters. Forever Peace, while it sounds like it should be the sequel to The Forever War, is not. I can't imagine that it even takes place in the same universe, as the technology in Forever Peace would allow the citizenry to pretty much have whatever they need (provided they live in a First World country) whereas in The Forever War, most of the population of Earth is poor, hungry, and unemployed as the novel begins.
