Description



About the Book



Sadistic Aliens loom...

Noble humans rise...

Is it the end or a new beginning?

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.

Review Quotes




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

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


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

"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


"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

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