Best Books by Authors at the Nebula Awards Mass Book Signing

So I read about the Nebula awards that will be in our area this year, and got really excited about the mass book signings. It is a rare thing for me to get to meet the authors of books I've loved. Unfortunately, my tastes have largely run to non-current authors, so I haven heard of any of the authors who will be at the event this year. so I wanted to pose this question to the group. What books by any of these authors would you recommend?

Definitely check out Joe Haldeman's The Forever War.

Jack McDevitt writes fun sci-fi books. We've read A Talent for War and Time Travelers Never Die by him in the past.

Myke Cole's Shadow Ops: Control Point is supposed to be good, from what I've heard though I haven't read it yet.

Thanks Vijay. Im definitely going to read those. Where in the workd do you find the time to read non group books? :) Also, looking through that compiliation of military sf by military veterans I told you about, I see I've read quite a few of them after all. Haldeman also contributed to the Thieves world series I enjoyed.

John Scalzi's Old Man's War is the first in a four-book series. If you like military sf, this might be a good bet.

Joe W. Haldeman's Forever War is a classic everyone should read.

James Morrow writes religious satire. I like his Only Beloved Daughter and his Last Witchfinder book is good too.

For Walter John Williams, you might like Hardwired as an action/adventure, but I'd recommend Metropolitan
