Sections of The Forever War were originally published in Analog Magazine as four shorter works; "Hero", "We Are Very Happy Here", "This Best of All Possible Worlds", and "End Game". "You Can Never Go Back" was published in Amazing Stories and eventually became part of the paperback version of the novel.
In 1988, The Forever War was adapted with art by Marvano into a three-part graphic novel also titled The Forever War. It was originally published in Belgium and France in 1988 then released in an American edition in 1991. Translations have appeared in Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian, Swedish and Polish.
"A Separate War", a 1999 Haldeman short story which follows the adventures of Marygay Potter after she and Mandella are separated in the last years of the Forever War, appeared in Far Horizons (edited by Robert Silverberg) and in Haldeman's short-story collection A Separate War and Other Stories (2006).
