Cover tagline

1992 — the wild and wacky novel of the next World's Fair

Back cover text

In 1492, Columbus discovered America ... and in 1992 Claude Regan had to make it happen again!

The U.S. needed a shot in the arm as the 20th Century went into its last decade — and a World's Fair celebrating 500 years of American civilization might turn the trick.

The President put the whole job in the lap of the trickiest, most ruthless promoter in the country — Claude Regan. And the first thing Regan realized was that Earth wasn't big enough to hold the kind of Fair he wanted... he built a new world!

Interior text

Regan was in the hole for a couple billion dollars. If the Fair was a success — he was home free, and richer than ever. But it looked as if it were going to be a bust — and that meant Regan would be left with a nation-sized debt, a useless private satellite hanging in Earth's sky, and no place on any world to hide.

There was only one thing to do...

...and so Regan became the first interplanetary kidnapper!
