Cemetery World by Clifford D. Simak

Description: Earth - graveyard to the galaxy. Those who could afford it shipped the bones of their dead back to Mother Earth, man's ancient birthplace. Ravaged 10,000 years earlier by war, Earth was reclaimed by its space-dwelling offspring as a planet of landscaping and tombstones.

Fletcher Carson came back to Earth to work on an artistic creation of revolutionary design. He was accompanied by a powerful robot, by a talented art-machine, and by a strikingly beautiful treasure hunter whose secret goal was vastly more important than mere gold and jewels.

But for them, the world of the dead was hostile terrain, where the Wolves of Steel dogged their footsteps, where the shrouded Census-taker floated faceless beside them, and where the frightful Shades hovered at landscape's edges.

Here is a novel of high adventure, eerie and compelling, in the great tradition of Simak's classic City.
