One of the most loved pulp sci-fi books of the past century, L. Ron Hubbard’s Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000, celebrates its fortieth birthday this year.  It’s popcorn sci-fi that gets its hooks in readers, and doesn’t let go.  Battlefield Earth is known for characters that are either loved, or who readers love to hate, as well as for endless chapters of space opera adventure.  And for those who are just beginning to venture into Hubbard’s fiction, there’s no doubt more that they’ll come to enjoy.

Is it the end of the world or the rebirth of a new one?

In the year A.D. 3000, Earth is a dystopian wasteland. The great cities stand crumbling as a brutal reminder of what we once were. When the Psychlos invaded, all the world’s armies mustered little resistance against the advanced alien weapons.

Now, the man animals serve one purpose. Do the Psychlos’ bidding or face extinction.

One man, Jonnie Goodboy Tyler, has a plan. They must learn about the Psychlos and their weapons. He needs the other humans to follow him. And that may not be enough.

Can he outwit his Psychlo captor, Terl?

The fate of the Galaxy lies on the Battlefield of Earth.
