The Status Civilization

Front Cover
Gollancz, 1976 - English fiction - 158 pages
Science fiction. The life expectancy of a new arrival on Omega averaged three earth years. Will Barrent could choose - exile on a nightmare planet, or life under the tyranny that had taken over Earth. Barrent had been tried, convicted, and memory-washed on Earth - an Earth strangely altered and stratified by fear of the radical and non-conformist. Now he was serving his sentence on Omega - a prison planet walled by a ring of hovering guard-ships from which there was no escape. Omega was a world of horror, a savage, ruthless way of life. But it was only a momentary ordeal, a prelude to a return to Earth and the subtle terrors of its own status civilization
