ALIENS by asking myself what might First Contact be like if the Aliens visiting Sol are social predators who are mostly carnivores? What if there is an interstellar 'social order' where -only- the predators travel star-to-star while non-predators are treated as 'herbivores' to be added to the Hunt territory of a conquering Alien species? Gave me lots of ideas, enough for a four book series for sure! Have gotten some fine reviews on Amazon. I welcome reader questions on this and other novels of mine. Tom/T. Jackson King.(less)
