Description

Earth does not exist 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 Voltaran 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 Voltars 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 doesnt 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 cant afford to look the other way. Its 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.

Review quote

"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 "Marvelous satire by a master of adventure." -ANNE MCCAFFREY "A delicious read ... as one would expect of an experienced pro." -WASHINGTON POST "An outrageous and wildly funny read." -SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER "I loved Mission Earth. The CIA will hate it. Hubbard has produced a real knee-slapper...Few writers have had the knack of making a serious philosophical point without ever stopping to preach, without ever slowing the action for an instant."-RAY FARADAY NELSON "Hubbard not only broke all the rules but he blazed a new literary path when he completed the monumental 1.2-million-word Mission Earth in slightly less than eight months." -William J. Widder "A thriller packed with lust, laughs, adventure and murderous intrigue." -Literary Guild "This ambitious novel, the first of a 10-volume series by SF veteran Hubbard ... is space opera in the grand tradition..." -Library Journal

About L. Ron Hubbard

Author, humanitarian and Founder of Dianetics and Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard is one of the most acclaimed figures of the modern age. In a writing career spanning over half a century, he was both a leading light of American fiction and the author of over 35 million words of non-fiction -- the single most embracive statement on the human mind and spirit, providing the only road to total spiritual freedom. To date, over 320 million copies of his works are in circulation worldwide, in 71 languages. All told, those works comprise over 3.000 recorded lectures and some 1,084 written publications, including nineteen New York Times bestsellers. Accordingly, and in testament to the magnitude of his literary legacy, there are his four Guinness World Records: most published author, most translated author, the author with the most audiobook titles and the single most translated non-religious work.
