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.

Earthlings: prepare for the shock of your lives!
Global warming . . . reversed.
The energy crisis . . . over.
The greatest problem on Earth . . . solved.
Voltarian Royal Officer of the Fleet, Jettero Heller, has it all figured out. And he’s devised a daring and ingenious plan to make it all happen . . . if he lives to see the day.
Saving the world is never easy, and for Heller, it turns out to be a tricky—and risky—business.
He’ll have to blast a gang of space pirates in a lethal laser firefight. He’ll have to find a way to capture and control a black hole. He’ll have to undertake a perilous journey to Saturn and back and transport a titanic chunk of ice across the solar system.
Then comes the hard part . . . because Heller is headed back to Voltar, where he’s about to uncover the identity of the powerful figure behind the conspiracy to end all conspiracies. He’s facing his deadliest nemesis yet, and before the intergalactic battle is over, the entire mission could end in DISASTER.

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
$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.
