THE FINAL RECKONING
1977. NASA launches the space probe Voyager 1. One of its missions: answer the question —is there intelligent life beyond our planet?
Fast-forward a thousand years. Question answered . . . by the Psychlos, an alien race who’ve proven just how terrifying intelligent life can be. Tracing Voyager 1 back to its origins, the Psychlos have scorched the Earth, all but wiped out the human race and stripped the planet of natural resources.
Now, in the year 3000, humankind faces total extinction. But in this post-apocalyptic world, as a new millennium arises, so too has the courageous Jonnie Goodboy Tyler. A natural-born leader, Jonnie manages to raise an army out of the remnants of humanity, knowing that against the seemingly invincible aliens, the uprising will require a daring strike on an epic scale.
Is it the end of our world . . . or the dawn of a new one? Will the human race be an instrument of the planet’s destruction . . . or the seed of its rebirth? The answers lie at the heart of Battlefield Earth —the landmark New York Times bestselling saga of intrigue and suspense, love and war, power and vision.
It’s your future. Don’t miss it.

Guys! I stopped in at the Galaxy Press booth at ALA this past weekend and they have me completely excited about the Audiobook. This is not any normal audiobook. This is like a major motion picture.
