Or so they want you to believe.
Who are they? What do they want? And who do they think they are?
They are the Voltarians of Voltar—an empire 110 planets strong.
They are already among us. And the invasion is about to begin . . . in a hundred years or so.
Or is it?
The truth is far more sinister. Undercover, underground and out of sight, the invaders plan what may in fact be a massive diversion. In the darkest recesses of Voltar’s Coordinated Information Apparatus (otherwise known as the CIA), a tyrant of terror sets out to exploit the invasion in order to seize power. All that stands in his way is a planet that doesn’t exist.
Discover a world where corporations rule and political corruption is rife. Where governments are driven by oil and controlled by drugs. Where global warming is getting hotter by the minute . . . and a scorching love affair could determine the fate of millions. Where a cosmic conspiracy is about to hit home and the intergalactic intrigue knows no bounds.
They call it Blito-P3. We call it Earth.
You can’t afford to look the other way. It’s the end of the world as you know it . . . and the beginning of one of the most spectacular, thought-provoking, and wildly inventive works of science fiction and espionage of our time.

Fast cars . . . and fast women.
Start your engines! Voltarian Royal Officer Jettero Heller is putting the pedal to the metal—and the action is about to shift into high gear.
Behind the wheel of his souped-up Caddy, Heller’s in a race against time—not to mention against suicide car bombers and accelerator bullets—and the fate of his top-secret mission hangs in the balance. But his greatest challenge is yet to come: a fight to the death high atop the Empire State Building.
Meanwhile, Heller’s sworn enemy Soltan Gris has his own battles to fight . . . and he’s learning that, sometimes, love hurts. Especially in the hands of a couple of sadistic sweethearts named Miss Pinch and Candy—girls who really get under his skin. When all is said and done, his only recourse is plastic surgery. But the operation takes a wicked turn, leaving him with more than he bargained for. Much, much more. Just call him Mr. Big Stuff.
People of Earth take note: there is nothing more seductive, more tantalizing or more terrifying than AN ALIEN AFFAIR.
“The granddaddy of all series.” —LOS ANGELES TIMES
Mission Earth is approaching climax . . .

Who will control Voltar?
What is Earth’s ultimate fate?
And what is the big mystery?

Together with an outlaw emperor and an army one hundred thousand strong, Heller lays siege to Palace City, which has fallen into the depraved and diabolical hands of Lombar Hisst. But the success of Heller’s great adventure is far from a sure thing. For in order to achieve victory, he will not only have to break the laws of Voltar—but defy the laws of physics.
Here is your ticket to travel beyond the boundaries of space and time. Experience the unfolding mysteries, the violent pleasures and the biting, inescapable truths you can only find in the final reckoning of THE DOOMED PLANET.
“Marvelous satire by a master of adventure.” —ANNE MCCAFFREY
$2 billion paternity suits.
It’s love Voltarian-style . . . and planet Earth is feeling the heat.
Voltarian Royal Officer Jettero Heller will go to any length to protect his beloved Countess Krak. He’ll race up the eastern seaboard pursued by the entire Coast Guard. He’ll smash boats, he’ll set off bombs, he’ll fight off every paternity suit that comes his way. . . .
But Apparatus Officer Soltan Gris is just as determined to put the Countess out of commission—for good—and he’s found the perfect hit man for the job. Well, almost perfect. This particular Torpedo has one little kink. He takes a bit of an unhealthy interest in his victims . . . after he kills them.
And as if Gris didn’t have enough on his plate, wedding bells are ringing. The Voltarian stud is about to tie the knot—with two women!
Yes, love is a battlefield. But in this warped war of twisted desires, perverse passions and unholy alliances—the entire Mission Earth enterprise could soon morph into a truly decadent DEATH QUEST.

The Voltarian terrorists have won!
Earth is history!
But don’t believe everything you read. Or hear. Or see. Because the road to victory is paved with bad intentions—and lies, betrayal and deception are all in play. So who are the players in this treacherous game . . . ?
Countess Krak: victim of a spectacular kidnapping, she is bound for a distant dungeon where she faces a venomous fate. . . .
Royal Officer Jettero Heller: convinced the Countess is dead and overcome by grief, he is holed up in a Connecticut roadhouse—and standing square in an assassin’s crosshairs. . . .
Soltan Gris: together with a young temptress named Teenie Whopper, he undertakes a drug-fueled voyage across the Atlantic. But the journey’s about to be cut short, as he goes from getting stoned with Teenie to nearly getting stoned to death in Turkey. . . .
So who is in command? Who is the puppet master pulling the strings? And, finally, is there any hope for planet Earth? The answers lie at the end of an extraordinary VOYAGE OF VENGEANCE.
