9781489592828: Sleeping Planet (The Science Fiction Novels of William R. Burkett, Jr.)

Science Fiction Encyclopedia described this as a “hard-edged” tale of the 24th-century conquest of Earth by an alien empire the humans had judged too stupid to pull off such a coup. Only a handful of humans escaped the effects of a mutated narcoleptic drug that put humanity into protracted hibernation. The battle to liberate Earth is fought by those few with the aid of a vengeful ghost called “Gremper” by the aliens. The action is fast and furious, while the genius general of the invading fleet goes slowly insane at the disruption of his well-laid plans. “A natural-born storyteller,” said bestselling author Frank G. Slaughter. A classic reprint of a sci-fi masterpiece.

About the Author:

William R. Burkett, Jr. wrote this classic science fiction novel at the age of 18. John W. Campbell, Jr., legendary editor of Analog Science Fact & Fiction Magazine, published it as a three-part story. It won the reader’s poll as favorite sci-fi story of the year. That led to a hardcover publication by Doubleday, a paperback edition, and several foreign editions. However, the acclaimed book has long been out of print. This return of Sleeping Planet marks a resurgence of Bill Burkett, with several new works by this reclusive writer appearing for the first time.
