Publisher's Summary

The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction 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.” (Frank G. Slaughter, best-selling author)

A classic reprint of a sci-fi masterpiece.

Excellent book but sadly not well read

The Sleeping Planet is a timeless classic of science fiction. Sadly it was not well narrated by Nathan Bakker whose voice is too monotone.
