Product description

Review

"A terrific story." --Robert A. Heinlein

"An unrelenting, whooping good yarn" --Los Angeles Magazine


"This has everything: suspense, pathos, politics, war, humor, diplomacy and intergalactic finance." Publishers Weekly"

"In the year 3000, Earth has been conquered by nine-foot-tall, gas-breathing alien invaders called Psychlos. The few surviving humans are treated as nothing more than pack animals worked to death mining the Earth of all its resources. But a small band of rebel humans, led by Jonnie Goodboy Tyler, vow to fight back against impossible odds and reclaim their planet.

"In the book's introduction, Hubbard states: "When I started out to write this novel, I wanted to write pure science fiction. Science is for people. And so is science fiction." If "Battlefield Earth"'s phenomenal worldwide popularity is any indication almost 7 million copies sold in 26 different languages -- it's safe to say that he succeeded. Considering the quality of the story ("Battlefield Earth" was voted as one of the top three English-language novels of the 20th century in a nationwide Modern Library reader's poll) and the tender loving care that went into the production, this 20th anniversary edition is more than pure science fiction. It's pure literary gold." Paul Goat Allen - Barnes & Noble"

"Over 1,000 pages of thrills, spills, vicious aliens and noble humans. I found "Battlefield Earth" un-put-downable." Neil Gaiman

"A terrific story." Robert A. Heinlein"

"If you like the kind of fast, unrelenting 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' action, then this is the book for you. It's a real page turner." Rocky Mountain News
"

"An unrelenting, whooping good yarn" Los Angeles Magazine
"

"An epic science fiction adventure, the absorbing story captures the mind and imagination." Orange County Register
"

"The pace starts fast and never lets up." Atlanta Journal-Constitution
" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard.
