Synopsis: From the flaps of the Crown first edition: "It was the Man from Venus (at least that's where he said he came from) who caused all the pandemonium on the Potomac. Actually it started in the Pentagon and it spread all over the whole world.

Homer Centurion, short, pudgy, and oddly dressed, came on a special mission from Venus to this planet, he said, because the Earth had started to wobble on its axis and this was causing grave danger to the galaxy. Underground nuclear tests were causing the wobble and they just had to be stopped. He was accompanied only by his daughter Diane. She had honey-colored hair, emerald green eyes and a figure that drew whistle even from non-members of the Girl Watcher's Society. It was not easy for Homer to get the guard at the White House or anyone at the Pentagon, let alone the President, to take him seriously. But Diane had the good fortune to encounter COlonel Buck Walker, the hot-test pilot who ever saddled his flanks to a blowtorch, and the famous Cornelius Catastrophe Callaghan, who had a way with porpoises, pelicans, and the Pentagon. From then on things zoomed ahead with the most exciting, fabulous, and hilarious developments "Andy" Anderson tells the story, with his tongue not always in his check. It is all about Washington and the Government and it milks the Sacred Cow of the Pentagon with icy fingers. Though some advance readers say it outdoes, with a wink, Dr. Strangelove, Fail Safe, Seven Days in May, and Thorne Smith combined, Pandemonium is really incomparable.

A Hitchcock ending makes it all seem quite believable, but believable or not, it is unquestionably wonderfully enjoyable from the first page to the last."
