Battlefield Earth’s Terl Makes Debut in Chicago at
Book Expo America

Attending the Book Expo America in Chicago, Terl the evil Psychlo security chief from Battlefield Earth by international bestselling author L. Ron Hubbard, found himself a hit with fans.

Chicago, IL —Galaxy Press attended the recent Book Expo America convention in Chicago where Terl made his debut to an enthusiastic crowd of booksellers and librarians after returning from the London Bookfair where he paid a visit to the London Tower. Already recognized as a New York Times bestseller, L. Ron Hubbard’s Battlefield Earth was a big draw as booksellers lined up to get their photos taken with the evil alien security chief.

Terl’s Chicago visit is part of a national advance publicity plan leading up to the Father’s Day 2016 release of the new edition of Battlefield Earth with expanded content including never-before-published author handwritten notes as well as a 47½ hour multicast unabridged audiobook, the biggest sci-fi audiobook ever produced.

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 350 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time. In celebration of his fiftieth anniversary as an author, he again returned to the forefront of popular literature with his monumental epics Battlefield Earth and the ten-volume Mission Earth series. Together, these titles dominated international bestseller lists for 153 weeks, and still remain among the all-time classic works of modern speculative fiction.
