AFTER TWO CENTURIES....The sound came swiftly nearer, rising in pitch and swelling in volume. Then it broke through the clouds, tall and black and beautifully deadly - the Gern battle cruiser, come to seek them out and destroy them. Humbolt dropped inside the stockade, exulting. For two hundred years his people had been waiting for the chance to fight the mighty Gern Empire ... with bows and arrows against blasters and bombs! (Summary from the Gutenberg text)


  • Timothy S.

    This was the first sci-fi book I ever read and I was hooked. I never forgot how it made me feel although title and author dripped out of one of my ears sometime in the late sixties. Over the years I’ve questioned every serious sci-fi fan I met if they recognized the plot line without success. Then earlier this year I was browse-listening to the sci-fi group of LibriVox books and I recognized my old friend, still as good as ever!

  • Walter F

    Great read! Good flow!

  • John R

    I really enjoyed the story. The narrator took some getting used to, but overall, good science fiction.

    Most interesting.

  • Jeremy Marks

    I was stunned to find that this book quickly became one of my all time favorites. Does it have a cheesy name? And have I never heard of Tom Goodwin? Yes and yes. But boy did I get my money's worth from this saga. I undoubtedly will read this book again, and I may even listen to this recording a second time on account of its phenomenal narration. 10/10

  • Noah Levan

    Excellent and short. 10/10 narrator . If you like space and a story that plays with the idea of evolution listen to this. Free and captivating

  • Keith Wooodard
