Author Bio
Joe Haldeman
Born in Oklahoma, Joe Haldeman grew up in a variety of places, ranging from Alaska to Puerto Rico. He earned a B.S. in astronomy at the University of Maryland in 1967. He was drafted into the Vietnam War that same year, and fought as a combat engineer. After he was discharged with a Purple Heart, he returned to school for graduate study but never finished his degree. He dropped out to write, and his first story, "Out of Phase," was published in 1969. Much of Haldeman's writing is based in some way on his experiences in the war, and his first novel, WAR YEAR (1972), was a way to address this issue. In 1975, THE FOREVER WAR was published to great acclaim, winning the Hugo and Nebula awards. That same year, he earned an M.F.A. in English from the Iowa Writers workshop. Haldeman has taught at various universities, including M.I.T., in addition to teaching classical guitar and coaching a fencing team. He has written numerous poems and short stories, which include award winners like "Tricentennial" (1976), "The Hemingway Hoax" (1990), "Graves" (1992) and "None So Blind" (1994). In addition to his novels, each volume of the Worlds trilogy was nominated for a Locus Magazine Reader's Poll Award. In 1997, Haldeman wrote a successful follow-up to FOREVER WAR, called FOREVER PEACE, which was also a multiple award winner.
