Twenty-three years ago, the 'bulls' appeared in orbit and destroyed Earth's infrastructure in less than ten seconds.
These days, the alien invaders aren't as much of a problem as the surviving humans are.
Evan Greggs has learned that things aren't always as bad as they seem, but sometimes the choices to be made are as murky as they are difficult.
24,000 word novella.
Don’t even waste your time on this writer.
One of the most pathetic attempts at virtue signaling ever penned.
It's better this way
There you go. Uninterrupted dream all the way to the end, which came too soon. The author made the statement somewhere in the afterword about "moral ambiguity". I don't get that at all. When the main character proposes hard and pragmatic choices for the survival of the community-it's just common sense. It's not easy. It's not pretty or particularly comforting, but it is real and effective. The compassionate, the just, the empathic are capable of the hard choices survival may require. We are not "precious snowflakes".
What if? What if aliens interceded and imposed their particular agenda upon the Earth. Is it benign? Are the possible benefits intentional or mere side effects? How would you or I react? How would the psychopaths who have benefitted from the present omnicidal arrangements react?
Really good book.
