    He's immediately drafted into GalactiCop and sent to Hideaway, an exotic pleasure playground. He is on such a top-secret mission that he doesn't even know what it is. While trying on some clothes, he meets a beautiful woman named Kiru who escaped a penal planet with a bunch of space pirates. Wayne finally loses his virginity before he and Kiru are arrested. They both escape their captors but become separated which means there won't be a happily ever after ending for this couple or will there?

    BIKINI PLANET is a fun science fiction novel that doesn't take itself seriously at all. It is a satire on the entire “grave – save the universe” space opera novels and movies that are so prevalent in fiction today. David Garnett has a delicious sense of humor, which he shows off to perfection in ironically this one of a kind novel.
