All it takes is a single step. . . .The possibilities are endless. (Just be careful what you wish for. . . .)1916: The Western Front. Private Percy Blakeney wakes up. He is lying on fresh spring grass. He can hear birdsong and the wind in the leaves. Where have the mud, blood, and blasted landscape of no-man's-land gone? For that matter, where has Percy gone?2015: Madison, Wisconsin.

It is the prototype of an invention that will change the way humankind views the world forever.The Long Earth is an adventure of the highest order and will captivate science fiction fans of all stripes, readers of Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, and Carl Hiaasen, and anyone who enjoyed the Terry Pratchett/Neil Gaiman collaboration Good Omens.Other books in the Long Earth series include:The Long WarThe Long MarsThe Long UtopiaThe Long Cosmos
