Sci-fi recs?

I come in search of recommendations. I've heard a lot of good stuff about Elizabeth Moon, Octavia Butler and Poul Anderson, and I've decided that since I'm currently on a sci-fi kick anyway, it can't hurt to buy more books. I can't really afford to buy more than a couple though, so what I'd like to know is: which do you think are the very best, most awesome-tastic books by the aforementioned authors?

(Actually, if there's another sci-fi author you think my life would be incomplete without, rec away. My local library is woefully under-populated and I've only read a bit of Asimov and Clarke. I do, however, have The Dancers At The End Of Time and The Forever War on my to-read pile.)
