About the Author, L. Ron Hubbard
In addition to his work as the Founder of Dianetics and Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard stands as among the world’s most enduring and widely read authors of popular fiction, with international sales of some fifty million and a body of work spanning fifty years.
Accordingly, and in testament to the magnitude of his literary oeuvre and legacy, there are his four Guinness World Records: most published author, most translated author, the author with the most audiobook titles and the single most translated non-religious work.
While within even one genre—science fiction—L. Ron Hubbard’s stamp is both indelible and unmistakable. Consider, for example, his Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000. Described by science fiction legend A. E. van Vogt as an unqualified masterpiece, the 428,750-word epic was not only a sensational international bestseller, but the recipient of numerous international literary awards. In addition to both the Academy of Science Fiction’s Saturn Award and a special Gutenberg Award as an exceptional contribution to the genre, the work has earned Italy’s Tetradramma D’Oro Award in recognition of the story’s inherent message of peace. Battlefield Earth has since been published in scores of nations, translated into dozens of languages and serves as a model work.
The international bestseller Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000, not only stands as the largest single volume of science fiction to date, but among the most honored. In addition to both the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films’ Golden Scroll and Saturn Awards, the work earned Italy’s Tetradramma d’Oro Award (in recognition of the story’s inherent message of peace) and a special Gutenberg Award as an exceptional contribution to the genre.
