For humans, war remains an inexhaustible subject of storytelling and analysis—such a compelling topic that experts trace the origins of written history, historiography, to the Athenian general Thucydides, who wrote The Peloponnesian War nearly 2,500 years ago. The appeal of war stories, whether we read them for elevation or escape, is eternal. Science fiction, like every other genre whose authors have written for economic gain and popular acclaim, has plenty of combat. This installment of BiblioTech focuses on two novels at opposite ends of the timeline: Robert A. Heinlein's Hugo-winning classic Starship Troopers and newcomer John Scalzi's Hugo-nominated novel Old Man's War.
