Joe Haldeman isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but he does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from his feed.
Vala, I'll finish the new book, PHOBOS MEANS FEAR, soon; a lot of travel in the way -- like now, the Worldcon. It will come out about a year after i finish it, unless they have some reason to rush it.

“The 1143-year-long war hand begun on false pretenses and only because the two races were unable to communicate.

Once they could talk, the first question was 'Why did you start this thing?' and the answer was 'Me?”
Joe Haldeman, The Forever War

“Bad books on writing tell you to "WRITE WHAT YOU KNOW", a solemn and totally false adage that is the reason there exist so many mediocre novels about English professors contemplating adultery.”
Joe Haldeman

“There's no such thing as writing about the future. The future hasn't happened yet.”
Joe Haldeman
