Named a Grand Master by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Joe Haldeman has earned steady awards over his 47-year career: his novels The Forever War and Forever Peace both made clean sweeps of the Hugo and Nebula Awards, and he has won four more Hugos and Nebulas for other novels and shorter works. Three times he’s won the Rhysling Award for best science fiction poem of the year. He won the World Fantasy Award for short story in 1993 for “Graves.” In 2012 he was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame. His latest novels are a trilogy, Marsbound, Starbound and Earthbound, and a stand-alone Work Done For Hire. He's currently working on the novel Phobos Means Fear. Joe was a combat soldier in Vietnam, which strongly influences some of his work. The movie rights to The Forever War have been sold to Warner. When Joe’s not writing or teaching – he’s retired from M.I.T., where he taught every fall semester for 30 years -- he paints, bicycles, plays the guitar, and spends as much time as he can out under the stars as an amateur astronomer. He’s been married to Mary Gay Potter Haldeman for 50 years.
