With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 230 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard.

USA TODAY TOP TEN BESTELLERS: FICTION
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.
“You will lose sleep. You will miss appointments. If you don’t force yourself to set it down and talk to your family from time to time, you may be looking for a new place to live. Reading The Invaders Plan is simply the most fun you can have by yourself.” —ORSON SCOTT CARD
They’re here. They’ve arrived. And they’re all eyes. The Voltarian scouting party—illegal aliens extraordinaire—on a top-secret expedition led by one Jettero Heller, Royal Officer of the Fleet.
His mission: rescue the planet from pollution—and make it safe for the upcoming invasion.
His problem: the planet may not want to be saved—and the invasion may just be a trick.
One way or another, Heller is about to undertake a journey of discovery—and it’s a real trip. From a Middle Eastern mecca of drugs—the key to a scheme to bring down the Voltarian government—to the mean streets of New York, he’s finding out what makes this world go round.
Between the Mafia wars and the brothel whores, between the ruthless IRS agents and the crazy cab drivers, between the muggings and the weapons of mass destruction, this is one learning curve that’s about to turn into a roller-coaster ride. And before it’s over, all Heller will break loose . . . in the name of BLACK GENESIS.
“Ironic, exciting, romantic and hilarious.” —ORSON SCOTT CARD
And there’ll be hell to pay!
That’s right. The invasion is on . . . and it’s coming soon to a galaxy near you. The action couldn’t be hotter, and the plot couldn’t be more diabolical. Earth is coming to Voltar—and the Voltarians won’t know what hit them.
Murder, blackmail, drugs, psychoanalysis, PR firms, sex-crazed teenyboppers, riots in the streets, women in chains. These are the powerful secret weapons of war—perfected on Earth and imported to Voltar—which are now being exploited by the ruthless Lombar Hisst, chief of the Coordinated Information Apparatus (the infamous CIA). His obsession: total domination of the Voltarian Confederacy.
Can anyone stop the madness? Does anyone have the courage and charisma to crash this party?
Enter Royal Officer of the Fleet, Jettero Heller. Dodging Death Battalions and death warrants, he’s racing from Earth to face the challenge. But Hisst has taken Heller’s beautiful sister hostage, and she may be the one who has to pay the ultimate price of VILLAINY VICTORIOUS.
“A superlative storyteller with total mastery of plot and pacing.” —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
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.
“The Mission Earth books form a true saga—in the grand tradition!” —ROBERT BLOCH, AUTHOR OF PSYCHO
