Mission Earth Volume 8: Disaster audiobook
Who is the true master of disaster?
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.
Performers: Thomas Toner, John Beach, James Hartman, Anne Gartlan and Timothy Jerome.

L. 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.
“He breaks all the rules.… The old master has created a new genre and a veritable blockbuster … and moves the art of science fiction into a new realm of entertainment as well as education.” —The Herald
