Empire by Clifford D. Simak
Clifford D. Simak is one of the truest and most acclaimed masters of science fiction as a novelistic genre - had it not been for his works, the genre itself would be much poorer. Now. the masterpiece written by the Grand Master of the Science Fiction Writers of America is available in an eBook format, allowing all fans to enjoy this gem over and over again.
If you love Asimov, you will live Simak, too. You will also find similarities between the writing styles of the two grand masters of science fiction, which is not at all surprising since Simak's work was maybe the strongest influence on Asimov. The plot of Simak's Empire is built around the eternal fight between Good and Evil - the heroes fight against mighty villains surrounded by cruel, evil helpers and you can never know, until the very end of the book, whether Good will eventually prevail.
The story of Empire takes place in the future and it revolves around the fight for the power to control energy. The main source of energy in the solar system is under the control of one huge corporation, but scientific development takes its course and a group of ingenious scientists develop a new source of energy. Obviously, the corporation currently in control of energy is interested in protecting its monopoly by all means. The conflict exacerbates and climaxes in a fierce interstellar clash, but until that point, the reader is in for an extraordinary read - you will find it difficult to put down the book, once you started reading.
