I did another edit and trimmed a few words from the last version. What do you think? Did I go too far? I need all of your comments.
Alx Norust needs some of Earth’s big nukes -- and he needs them now.
Like his predecessors Zeus and Odin, (I think you're implying that the classical gods from man's past history are really envoys from the Galactic Councils past looking after mankind through its development - neat idea)Alx is an Envoy for the Galactic Council. His duty is to protect Earth from alien prowlers and keep its people thinking they are alone in the universe until they develop their own interstellar travel.
When Alx learns that a few renegade shipmasters plan to smash their ships into Earth, (are the shipbuilder's examples of the alien prowlers? why do they want to smash the earth?)he has to act fast – but the weapons he needs keep them from reaching Earth are hundreds of light years away. He has one chance -- use the nukes
on(from?)Earth (against the shipbuilders?). Now he must figure out how get (to?) them without Earth’s natives discovering that he exists.
My 92,000-word novel EARTH’S PROTECTOR is a science fiction adventure that should appeal to STAR WARS and STAR TRECK (Trek) fans. Like HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER, it portrays three distinct sets of its primary characters.(who are...?)
I am a retired principal industrial writer. I have books published by Unz & Co, several articles in sporting magazines and industrial publications, plus a 20,000-word entry in an encyclopedia published by Dun & Bradstreet.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Good idea and well presented. Maybe a bit more on the goals of the shipmasters to destroy earth.
