Aliens mating with earthlings? It’s true. And now three of their otherworldly offspring have stolen a spaceship and are zooming toward Earth in search of sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll. Parking their saucer in Sydney, Australia, they shapeshift into luscious earthgirl form. When the alien who calls herself Baby Baby abducts Jake and straps him into the saucer’s sexual experimentation chamber, the global warming begins.
Next the Babes decide to form a band and soon they’ve skyrocketed to rock ‘n’ roll stardom. But trouble is on its way in the small gray shape of Captain Qwerk, who has set out to recapture them, with the U.S. Military and Eros, the excitable asteroid, right behind. Rock ‘n’ Roll Babes from Outer Space proves that Jaivin’s imaginative powers put her in a league with Kurt Vonnegut and Douglas Adams. With a brave and racy wit, Jaivin delivers her most outrageous, enjoyable novel yet.
“Witty and wickedly satiric . . . the plot is rocket-fueled and the puns almost literally fly off the page. Few writers have skewered the rock and roll world so savagely and accurately and with so much delight.”—Washington Post Book World
