I think Galaxy Press missed the boat on marketing this series. Calling it "Satire" doesn't do this brilliant work justice.
Clark invented the communications satellite. My old friend Frank Herbert invented Earth Day. Ron Hubbard envisioned in He projected the value of stem cells for personal regeneration. He invented foot apparel that pulses light those damnable blinking tennis shoes kids now wear 7. He invented the ultimate city defense: Use a black hole to project the city 13 minutes into the future. He invented detailed games yet to be monetized. He invented hi-tech party masks that print onto your face yet to be monetized. He invented musical instruments like the "chorder beat" yet to be monetized.
No wonder he started his own religion and by the way, I'm a practicing Mormon and not a Scientology apologist. I can't wait to absorb the follow-up books in the volume set. This entire series is intended as satire, primarily of the government and multi-national corporations.
This first book sets up not only the plot, but also develops the characters a bit, mainly the narrator, who is also the villain of the series. This first book is a little slow as there are some necessary plot devices to set things up for later, but overall a good read. I got this book two weeks ago, and I'm already halfway through the third book.
The pace really picks up a bit in the second book, and so far the third book is the best of the three. I love this whole series of Mission Earth. This second volume of the ten volume series is very funny and well written. Besides being a great science fiction story about alien invasion from the invaders point of view, the story is a great satire of our American civilization.
Nothing is left untouched.
Read it for the sci-fi, read it for the satire or read it for both. A very entertaining start of a great space opera about a planet known as Earth which doesn't exist. Probably the worst piece of literature I have ever read. I was curious about the authors talents. One person found this helpful.

This reminds me of the "Road Runner and Coyote". Constant underhanded attempts by Soltan Gris to cause Heller failure resulting in Heller to always comes out on top in one form or another just like the Road Runner verses Coyote. There are parts that are bleeping funny then you go bleep this is a long bleeping book I wish the bleepard would have edited a few of the bleeping chapters out. It is for the most part a good book but you have to at times slog thru it. In the other 9 bleeping books the satire of the bleeping news organizations are dead on and the willing lemmings of the population to believe them.
Mission Earth is a ten-volume science fiction novel series by L. Ron Hubbard , founder of the Church of Scientology.
Hubbard died three months after the publication of volume 1, and other volumes were published posthumously. The series' initial publisher, Bridge Publications coined the word dekalogy , meaning "a series of ten books", to describe and promote the novel.
Made up of about 1. The Voltars want to conquer the planet Earth as a base for their planned invasion of the galactic centre. The Voltars are convinced that Earth is about to destroy itself through pollution and possibly war, which would disrupt the future timetable of conquest. Fleet Combat Engineer Jettero Heller, a character of perfection, incorruptibility, and astonishing ability, is assigned to prevent the destruction of Earth. Reaching New York City, he investigates the problem, unaware that he is being tracked and that factions on Voltar want his mission to fail.
Unknown to Heller, Earth is also the base of a secret operation conducted by the diabolically evil Lombar Hisst, Commander of the Apparatus, who seeks to usurp the Voltar throne. To gain control, Hisst has been importing illegal narcotic drugs from Earth to enslave the heads of government on Voltar. Hisst works to make Heller fail in his mission.
Hisst assigns a stooge named Soltan Gris to supervise the mission to Earth, in order to sabotage it. Gris finds himself in possession of twelve tons of pure gold, which he tries to launder through a Swiss bank account and keep for himself; he becomes a prisoner of two man-hating lesbians who end up marrying him, but not before various tortures are inflicted upon him.
He has terrible money and girlfriend troubles, and he hires a hit man who eventually targets him.
