Bob Rich | 38 comments I am entering a completed book in a contest, deadline early August, and would love some feedback. Happy to trade betas, or review in exchange for a beta.
If interested, please email

How can one person save a doomed planet, a doomed humanity? This is the task the alien sets Bill.
Look around our world. We are now in Earth’s 6th great extinction event. Galloping climate change is only one of the reasons, but the deadliest.
The global economic system is designed to do two things: rob the 99% to further enrich the super-wealthy, and is a device for turning nature into pollution, in order to increase the number of zeros in certain computers. How sane is that?
The alien, whom Bill has named Merlin, tells him there are millions of other places of sentient life within our galaxy. However, over its billions of years of existence, Merlin has never observed certain things that happen on earth. Examples are:
Nuclear war.
The deliberate killing of noncombatants in wars.
Sexual abuse of children.
The accumulation of wealth to the point where the owner cannot possibly benefit from it.
Merlin’s conclusion is that there must something unique about us: a force that is deliberately driving us to extinction.
And yes, Bill is the person who is required to reverse all this.
But then, the alien had specially bred him. And there is an Enemy, who knows Bill’s real identity, although Bill doesn’t.
