In un futuro lontano cinquanta milioni di anni la civiltà umana non esiste più, distrutta nel ventitreesimo secolo da un oscuro fenomeno noto come Estinzione. A organizzare una parvenza di ricostruzione badano i tecnalti, tra i pochi superstiti dell'ultima generazione vissuta sulla Terra: la loro scienza avanzata potrebbe essere veramente l'ultima speranza per il genere umano. Un gruppo di avventurosi e involontari naufraghi del tempo è sbarcato su questo mondo in agonia a bordo di sfere di energia indistruttibili, le "bolle" di cui si parla anche nella Guerra della pace ("Urania Collezione" n. 158). Purtroppo, poco dopo il recupero della sfera che contiene i sopravvissuti, le conoscenze dei tecnalti vengono sfruttate per un atroce delitto, e tutti gli indizi lasciano pensare che l'assassino voglia ripetere il suo gesto mirando stavolta a una vittima più illustre. Tutto quello che rimane del genere umano...

The Peace War is quintessential hard-science adventure. The Peace Authority conquered the world with a weapon that never should have been a weapon--the "bobble," a spherical force-field impenetrable by any force known to mankind. Encasing governmental installations and military bases in bobbles, the Authority becomes virtually omnipotent. But they've never caught Paul Hoehler, the maverick who invented the technology, and who has been working quietly for decades to develop a way to defeat the Authority. With the help of an underground network of determined, independent scientists and a teenager who may be the apprentice genius he's needed for so long, he will shake the world, in the fast-paced hard-science thriller that garnered Vinge the first of his four Hugo nominations for best novel. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

John W. Campbell was the man who made modern science fiction what it is today. As editor of Astounding Stories (later Analog), Campbell brought into the field such all-time greats as Asimov, Heinlein, Sturgeon and many others, while his own writing blazed new trails in science fiction reading pleasure. The Moon is Hell is this great writer-editor's vision of the first men on the moon - written 18 years before Neil Armstrong made history. This is the story of the American space programme - not as it happened, but as it might have been.
