Publisher's Summary

"The Golden Brat", Reinhard von Lohengramm, a military prodigy and admiral of the Galactic Empire, has ambitions beyond protecting the borders or even defeating the empire's enemies. He seeks to overthrow the old order and become a truly absolute - yet benevolent - dictator. His rival, the humble Yang Wen-li of the Free Planets Alliance, wishes to preserve democracy even if he must sacrifice his political ideals to defeat the empire. Their political and military battles play out over a galactic chessboard in an epic saga 15 centuries in the making!

If you love Foundation, you will LOVE this gem!

Like Isaac Asimov's Foundation, Legend of the Galactic Heroes is an outstanding science fiction epic. Even though this is only the first book in the series, I eagerly await the next installment!

Legend of The Galactic Heroes Finally Translated!

The first book of Tanaka's space epic did not disappoint. The translation and narration were superb. I really have been waiting over a decade for these novels to be translated into English and it was so worth the wait. Bring on book two!
