This title is now better remembered for being transformed into one of the worst B-movies in history. Don't blame the book, however, which is well regarded in sf circles. This 20th-anniversary edition offers the full text of the original. Galaxy Press, which launched this July, will reprint a number of Hubbard's books. If your existing copy looks as if it has been on the battlefield, this quality hardcover will make a nice replacement.

"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
