By the author of The Forever War: In the breathtaking sequel to Worlds, a survivor of the terrible conflict that destroyed the Earth and most of its satellite Worlds must work to save the human race from extinction The war that destroyed everything lasted a single day. After an initial nuclear strike, the Earth's population was further devastated by an insidious bioweapon targeting anyone above the age of puberty. Now most of what's left of human civilization gathers on New New York, one of the few orbiting Worlds that remain. Monitoring the Earth below from the floating habitat, Marianne O'Hara searches for signs of life-and, in particular, for Jeff Hawking, her former lover, who survived the viral nightmare thanks to a biological anomaly that rendered him immune. But Jeff is not the sole surviving adult in this landscape of death, ruin, and feral children, and those who fled to safety underground are being seduced by a terrible new religion preaching blood and vengeance. The last war, it seems, is not over-and the last hope for preventing the final holocaust may be Marianne O'Hara. The second enthralling volume in Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author Joe Haldeman's acclaimed Worlds trilogy, Worlds Apart is a thought-provoking tale of human frailty and lethal folly, and of the courage essential for the survival of the race. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Joe Haldeman including rare images from the author's personal collection.… (more)
