In the vein of Author C. Clark,” is how Writer’s Digest described TO AID AND PROTECT, the military/sci-fi tale of an alien race forced to abandon their home-world. The aliens flee an energy storm on computer guided starships, but before they can find a new sanctuary, the computer turns on them, destroying their society. The computer finds its way to Earth. At first contact, humans divide themselves into three categories: Survivalists, religious doomsayers, and the Alien movement. The computer launches wave after wave of attacks at the militaries of the world, resulting in destruction on a global scale. A rebellion, lead by LTCDR Jaqueline Petrovsky—a naval aviator—and MAJ Alexander Hobbes—US Army Special Forces—gather a team to defend the Earth. Headquartered in the Southeastern US, the rebels defy the computer and, with the aid of a new ally, launch counterattacks to liberate mankind. On land, in the air, and in space, the computer and its spider-shaped ships square off against humanity. Will Earth survive the onslaught…or perish as the computer simply tries to complete its mission, “TO AID AND PROTECT?” This action/adventure story is young reader friendly and has been enjoyed by people of all ages.
