“Recently there came a period when I had little to do. This was novel in a life so crammed with busy years, and I decided to amuse myself by writing a novel that was pure science fiction.”—L. Ron Hubbard, 1980
Dedicated to all the great science fiction and fantasy writers of the Golden Age, Battlefield Earth is the culmination of an era and stands as the last of the sci-fi classics.
L. Ron Hubbard wrote,
“This brand-new novel is dedicated to Robert A. Heinlein, A. E. van Vogt, John W. Campbell, Jr., and all the merry crew of science fiction and fantasy writers of the thirties and forties—The Golden Age—who made science fiction and fantasy the respected and popular literary genres they have become today.”
