Haldeman and Me at MidAmeriCon II
Birth: June 9, 1943.

Comments: Joe Haldeman is an American science fiction author best known for his landmark novel The Forever War. Haldeman holds a B.S. from the University of Maryland, and an M.F.A. from the University of Iowa Writer's Workshop, but his most formative experience appears to be his tour of duty as a combat engineer in the Vietnam War. His wartime service is reflected in many of his works, including The Forever War, War Year, and The Hemingway Hoax. Haldeman has written non-military science fiction as well, such as the novel Marsbound and its sequels, Mindbridge, and The Accidental Time Machine. Over the course of his long career, Haldeman has won five Hugo Awards, five Nebula Awards, four Locus Awards, a World Fantasy Award, and a Campbell Award. In 2010, Haldeman was named an SFWA Grand Master, and in 2012 he was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame.

Haldeman has a website named Joe Haldeman. He also has a LiveJournal blog titled Joe's Place. Haldeman is the younger brother of fellow science fiction author Jack C. Haldeman, II.
