How to Buy a Planet
by D.A. Holdsworth
It’s the Year 2024. Drowning in debt following the pandemic and facing ruin, the world’s leaders have taken the only logical decision.
They’ve sold the planet.
When Toby, a penniless student, and his two new flatmates find out one morning on TV, they’re surprised to find the Earth’s new alien owners are staggeringly cute and bring the promise of a debt-free future. They’re getting ready to celebrate along with the rest of the world, when a chance encounter with a mysterious professor reveals the truth. And there’s a glitch: the Earth is about to be destroyed.
With only 24 hours to avert the apocalypse, Toby’s flatmates – one paranoid, one gorgeous – drag him on an intergalactic adventure. Battling interplanetary bankers, the gang find that a deadly virus becomes their only chance of salvation.
