Battlefield Earth is an enormous epic of adventure set in the year 3000, when the future survival of what's left of the human race is at stake. When Jonnie Goodboy Tyler decides to venture out of the small and dwindling community of humans barely surviving in their Rocky Mountain retreat, he has no thought of challenging the order that for a thousand years has held the earth prisoner to the oppressive alien race of the Psychlos. The Psychlos and their vast intergalactic mining corporation have dominated and exploited all known galaxies for centuries, ruthlessly destroying races who dare to resist. How one man with the aid of a few surviving Scotsmen tackles the greatest malignant power in the universe makes for a sprawling adventure of thrilling heroics, full of dangerous underground work, interplanetary wars, intergalactic financial intrigue, monster races, and complex political manipulation spread across a vast canvas of epic scale.

About the Author

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 350 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. In celebration of his fiftieth anniversary as an author, he again returned to the forefront of popular literature with his monumental epics Battlefield Earth and the ten-volume Mission Earth series. Together, these titles dominated international bestseller lists for 153 weeks, and still remain among the all-time classic works of modern speculative fiction.

Reviews

The futuristic tale, featuring aliens and humans fighting for survival, comes across as compelling and believable. ... Sound effects (chattering crowds, chirping insects and so much more) conjure up the settings, and original backround music adds flavor." Booklist" "Over 1,000 pages of thrills, spills, vicious aliens and noble humans. I found "Battlefield Earth" un-put-downable." Neil Gaiman "The quality of Galaxy's work is always excellent, but for what is probably Hubbard's crowning achievement they pulled out all the stops. ...it's like a full-blown feature film inside your head." Audiobook Heaven" "This has everything: suspense, pathos, politics, war, humor, diplomacy and intergalactic finance." Publishers Weekly" "This animation style soundtrack. ...A vivid movie of the mind." --Audiofile "An epic science fiction adventure, the absorbing story captures the mind and imagination." --Orange County Register "An unrelenting, whopping good yarn" --Los Angeles Magazine "This has everything: suspense, pathos, politics, war, humor, diplomacy and intergalactic finance." --Publishers Weekly "The quality of Galaxy's work is always excellent, but for what is probably Hubbard's crowning achievement they pulled out all the stops. ...it's like a full-blown feature film inside your head." --Audiobook Heaven "Over 1,000 pages of thrills, spills, vicious aliens and noble humans. I found Battlefield Earth un-put-downable." --Neil Gaiman "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 The futuristic tale, featuring aliens and humans fighting for survival, comes across as compelling and believable. ...
