Get a sneak peek of the Battlefield Earth paperback release

Following the very successful 2016 re-release of Battlefield Earth as a trade paperback and the Audie Award winning full-cast audiobook, both of which went to the #1 spot in the US, we are now preparing for our fall release (September 5th) of the mass market paperback edition. In talking with many of our Battlefield Earth fans both online and in person at conventions, we know they love how the characters come to life in the novel through L.

Epic in its current use seems to mean a sort of meld of awesome (i.e., neat-o) and outstanding. Epic: “telling a story about a hero or about exciting events or adventures very great” or “large and usually difficult or impressive” This is the meaning that was in my mind after reading Battlefield Earth.
