John Scalzi's The Human Division is the fifth in The Old Man's War series. Lieutenant Harry Wilson has an impossible mission. He must help preserve the union of humanity's colonies, in the wake of a terrible revelation. For years the Colonial Union has protected its citizens from the dangerous universe around them. But the people of Earth now know the ugly truth. The Union deliberately kept Earth as an ignorant backwater – and as a source of recruits for its war against hostile aliens. Now, other alien races have formed a new alliance against the Union. And they've invited the incensed people of Earth to join them. Managing the Colonial Union's survival will take all the political cunning and finesse its diplomats can muster. And Harry and his team will be deployed to deal with the unexpected – for failure is unthinkable.

Mit dem Rücken zur Wand Die Menschen haben ferne Planeten und fremde Welten besiedelt – unter den misstrauischen Augen der Aliens und unter dem Schutz der Kolonialen Union. Wenn diese nun wie geplant aufgelöst wird, wären die menschlichen Kolonien den feindlich gesinnten Aliens hilflos ausgeliefert. Ausgerechnet in dieser prekären Lage taucht ein neuer Feind auf, der Menschen und Aliens gegeneinander ausspielt. Für Lieutenant Harry Wilson beginnt ein Wettlauf gegen die Zeit, denn sollte er nicht herausfinden, wer hinter dem intergalaktischen Intrigenspiel steckt, sind Menschen und Aliens gleichermaßen dem Untergang geweiht ...

Er erklärt sich bereit, die Leitung einer neugegründeten Kolonie zu übernehmen, nichts ahnend, dass die Siedler nur Schachfiguren in einem Ränkespiel zwischen Menschen und Aliens sind. Nach und nach kommt Perry hinter das Intrigenspiel – und versucht, mit allen Mitteln zu verhindern, dass seine Kolonie die letzte in der Galaxis wird.

John Perry did two things on his 75th birthday. First he visited his wife's grave. Then he joined the army. The good news is that humanity finally made it into interstellar space. The bad news is that planets fit to live on are scarce-and aliens willing to fight for them are common. The universe, it turns out, is a hostile place. So: we fight. To defend Earth (a target for our new enemies, should we let them get close enough) and to stake our own claim to planetary real estate. Far from Earth, the war has gone on for decades: brutal, bloody, unyielding. Earth itself is a backwater. The bulk of humanity's resources are in the hands of the Colonial Defense Force, which shields the home planet from too much knowledge of the situation. What's known to everybody is that when you reach retirement age, you can join the CDF. They don't want young people; they want people who carry the knowledge and skills of decades of living. You'll be taken off Earth and never allowed to return. You'll serve your time at the front. And if you survive, you'll be given a generous homestead stake of your own, on one of our hard-won colony planets. John Perry is taking that deal. He has only the vaguest idea what to expect. Because the actual fight, light-years from home, is far, far harder than he can imagine-and what he will become is far stranger.

How do you tell your part in the biggest tale in history? I ask because it's what I have to do. I'm Zoe Boutin Perry: A colonist stranded on a deadly pioneer world. Holy icon to a race of aliens. A player (and a pawn) in a interstellar chess match to save humanity, or to see it fall. Witness to history. Friend. Daughter. Human. Seventeen years old. Everyone on Earth knows the tale I am part of. But you don't know my tale: How I did what I did — how I did what I had to do — not just to stay alive but to keep you alive, too. All of you. I'm going to tell it to you now, the only way I know how: not straight but true, the whole thing, to try make you feel what I felt: the joy and terror and uncertainty, panic and wonder, despair and hope. Everything that happened, bringing us to Earth, and Earth out of its captivity. All through my eyes. It's a story you know. But you don't know it all.

Wenn die Klone versagen, werden die Geisterbrigaden eingesetzt In ferner Zukunft wird der interstellare Krieg mit scheinbar bizarren Mitteln geführt: Für die Verteidigung der Kolonien im All werden nur alte, betagte Menschen rekrutiert. Sie werden geklont und ihre Bewusstseine in jüngere Ausgaben ihrer Selbst transferiert, was sie zu billigem Kanonenfutter macht. Doch als die Aliens sich verbünden und damit den Krieg zu gewinnen drohen, müssen die Geisterbrigaden ran, deren Körper aus genetischem Fremdmaterial hergestellt wurden. Einer von ihnen ist Jared Dirac. Doch sein neuer Körper tut nicht immer das, was er von ihm will, und langsam wird die Zeit knapp.

Hugo-award winning author, John Scalzi returns to his best-selling Old Man's War universe with The End of All Things, the direct sequel to 2013's The Human Division Humans expanded into space...only to find a universe populated with multiple alien species bent on their destruction. Thus was the Colonial Union formed, to help protect us from a hostile universe. The Colonial Union used the Earth and its excess population for colonists and soldiers. It was a good arrangement...for the Colonial Union. Then the Earth said: no more. Now the Colonial Union is living on borrowed time-a couple of decades at most, before the ranks of the Colonial Defense Forces are depleted and the struggling human colonies are vulnerable to the alien species who have been waiting for the first sign of weakness, to drive humanity to ruin. And there's another problem: A group, lurking in the darkness of space, playing human and alien against each other-and against their own kind -for their own unknown reasons. In this collapsing universe, CDF Lieutenant Harry Wilson and the Colonial Union diplomats he works with race against the clock to discover who is behind attacks on the Union and on alien races, to seek peace with a suspicious, angry Earth, and keep humanity's union intact...or else risk oblivion, and extinction-and the end of all things.
