To Conquer ChaoseBook - 2014
In TO CONQUER CHAOS, Brunner gives us a heaping helping of classic planetary SF adventure. The barrenland is a mystery and an enigma a dangerous and terrifying place that none who enter ever return from. More than three hundred miles around, it has existed far longer than collective memory can guess and, all too often, strange beasts emerge from it and kill at random. Conrad, who lives on the edge of the barrenland, is haunted by visions of its past as a haven, populated by magical people who could travel between worlds and only when he meets Jervis Yenderman, a soldier who has knowledge of the visions and who believes that within the barrenland is an island of human survivors--and that one man has escaped it within recent memory. "One of the most important science fiction authors. Brunner held a mirror up to reflect our foibles because he wanted to save us from ourselves." --SF Site For each generation, there is a writer meant to bend the rules of what we know. Hugo Award winner (Best Novel, STAND ON ZANZIBAR) and British science fiction master John Brunner remains one of the most influential and respected authors of all time, and now E-Reads is pleased to re-introduce many of his classic works. For readers familiar with his vision, it's a chance to re-examine his thoughtful worlds and words, while for new readers, Brunner's work proves itself the very definition of timeless.
