"The incredibly detailed future world that Haldeman has created is fascinating and.both spellbinding and funny."--Science Fiction Review

A "story of the near future" from a Hugo and Nebula Award winner--and one of the most prestigious science fiction writers ever. At the end of the 21st century, many people believe the only real hope for humanity lies in the Worlds: 41 orbiting satellites housing half a million people. Though the creation of cheap fusion has undermined the Worlds as a source of solar energy, they still welcome many tourists and offer plenty of raw materials for export. For example, New New York is almost pure steel. And, from that city comes Marianne O'Hara, a brilliant political-science student who has elected to spend a postgraduate year on Earth--where she unwittingly finds herself caught up in a group of fanatics looking to start another revolution in America.even if it means the destruction of the planet.

About the Author:

Joe Haldeman was born in Oklahoma in 1943 and studied physics and astronomy before serving as a combat engineer in Vietnam, where he was severely wounded and won a Purple Heart. THE FOREVER WAR, his first sf novel, was awarded both the Nebula and the Hugo, as was the later FOREVER PEACE.

From Publishers Weekly:

In this reissue of Hugo and Nebula award-winner Joe Haldeman's 1955 novel, Worlds, humanity's best hope rests in the Worlds, the 41 satellites orbiting Earth that house half a million people. Meanwhile, a brewing revolution on Earth threatens nothing less than the planet's destruction.
