21st Century Edition Battlefield Earth By L. Ron Hubbard #battlefieldearth @be_the_book
Publishers Weekly and USA Today Best Seller!
“A pulse-pounding mile-a-minute sci-fi action adventure that does not stop. It is a masterpiece of popular science fiction.” —Brandon Sanderson
In response to the Voyager launched in 1977, an alien race, the Psychlos, remorselessly wiped out the humans with a poisonous gas barrage, and ground and air bombings. They killed more than 99.9% of the people on Earth, not to mention their sadistic hunting sprees of people for pure pleasure for the ensuing 1,000 years. Now, there are about 3,000 Psychlos stationed on Earth, mining her remaining natural resources, and mankind is an endangered species.
Terl, the greedy and sadistic Psychlo Planetary Security Chief assigned to Earth, has a selfish plan for a future of abundance and prosperity. This plan requires enslaving humans to mine precious gold in the treacherous Rocky Mountains, and then wiping out all of the evidence, including all remaining human life.
Enslaved by Terl, Jonnie Goodboy Tyler must turn a small desperate band of the last survivors into a tightly coordinated rebel force.
Pitted against impossible odds, they must outsmart this cunning and vicious alien adversary that has conquered all opposition throughout the galaxy into total oblivion.
Is Jonnie’s fight to save humanity from these gigantic, technologically superior, and cruel monsters a losing battle where mankind will become forever extinct? Or will humans regain the Earth once more after centuries of domination by the alien invaders in this high-stakes science fiction adventure?
Experience the book that changed the shape of science fiction forever.
When first published, Battlefield Earth dominated the best-seller lists for 32 weeks. A Random House Modern Readers Library Poll voted Battlefield Earth one of the Best 100 English language novels of the 20th century.
The great SF author Robert Heinlein called Battlefield Earth “a masterpiece.”
This new 21st Century Edition contains these bonuses:
§ Cover art by legendary SF and fantasy painter Frank Frazetta.
§ The author’s never-before-published handwritten notes.
§ An exclusive interview with the author.
Cassandra's Review- if you have never read a book by L. Ron Hubbard, this is a must read. It is trues to his amazing writing style and places you in the realm of possibility. There are parts that give you the chills just from the very descriptions and imagination that the author brings out.
With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 320 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most enduring 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.
Then too, of course, there is all L. Ron Hubbard represents as the Founder of Dianetics and Scientology and thus the only major religion born in the 20th century.
While, as such, he presents the culmination of science and spiritual technology as embodied in the religion of Scientology.
I received complimentary copies.
The audiobook that is OUT OF THIS WORLD.
It is the full unabridged audio performance for Battlefield Earth. It is nearly 50 hours (so a major project all by itself), full cast (over 65 actors and actresses) and 150,000 sound effects. Nothing like it, even by us.
