Who will control Voltar?
What is Earth’s ultimate fate? Does it even exist? And if so, is it The Doomed Planet?
And last but not least: what is the big mystery?
Reporting from the scene is the brilliant (by his own account) investigative journalist Monte Pennwell. The satire is about to explode—on The Doomed Planet.
The moment of truth is finally at hand—and it’s a real blast! In the middle of it all stands Royal Officer of the Fleet, Jettero Heller.
Together with an army one hundred thousand strong, Heller lays siege to Palace City, which has fallen into the depraved hands of Lombar Hisst. But the success of Heller’s great adventure is far from a sure thing. To achieve victory, he will not only have to break the laws of Voltar—but defy the laws of physics.
Journey into a world that will change the way you see our world. 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

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Ron Hubbard not only broke all the rules but blazed a new literary path when, in August 1981, after less than eight months of writing, he completed the monumental 1.2 million-word bestselling saga Mission Earth. Working with exceptional speed, discipline, and skill, he produced a remarkable interweaving of deftly plotted action, adventure, intrigue, and espionage, all seasoned with scathing social satire.
