How to Buy a Planet
by D.A. Holdsworth
It’s the Year 2024. Drowning in debt following the pandemic, 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, 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.
