The Mission Earth Dekalogy*

Earth does not exist. Or so they want you to believe. Who are they and what do they want? They are the Voltarians of Voltar—an empire 110 planets strong. They are already among us. And the invasion is about to begin…. Or is it? The truth is far more sinister. 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.

While Battlefield Earth caught many by surprise, no one was prepared for the unique and unprecedented work that followed it. Writing once more in the science fiction genre, Ron created an unsurpassed masterpiece of satire and social commentary within the framework of a rousing intergalactic adventure. It is full of biting insights about the condition of our planet, its people, and its institutions.

Ron completed Battlefield Earth in October 1980 while living in Newport Beach. He began writing Mission Earth in December of the same year. But before he could finish it, his lifelong zest for adventure led him to strike out on a trip up the West Coast of the United States. He wrote while journeying along the coast in his state-of-the-art Bluebird motor home. Each evening, he’d sketch out character descriptions, scenes, and dialogue for the following day’s writing. The next day, he’d type out another 5,000 words on one of his Underwood typewriters. By August 19, 1981, he had completed the entire story—6,500 pages of handwritten notes and 3,800 typed pages over some eight months in his seventieth year.

*Dekalogy: a group of ten volumes.
