Overview

Civilized, harmless virtual reality dueling has replaced all physical conflict — everything from punching someone over a personal insult to interstellar warfare... until a madman dictator of a small empire finds a way to cheat, and use the dueling machine to take over the galaxy!

From a six-time Hugo Award winning master of science, and set in the same universe as The Star Conquerors, THE DUELING MACHINE is filled with real people facing the end of their world as they know it.

NOTE: THIS IS THE OFFICIAL, COMPLETE NOVEL EDITION.

Ben Bova wrote a short story of the same title which some others are selling as ebooks, but be aware they are NOT selling the complete novel -- nor are they authorized by Dr. Bova to sell it, nor do they pay any share to Dr. Bova. They are relying on a currently gray area of copyright law to claim the short story is public domain. Regardless, the other items are not the complete novel. This is the only ebook edition that is the complete novel, and is the only one authorized by Ben Bova.

Don't let the galaxy be taken over by a madman -- get your copy today!
