THEY HAVE TO PREVENT A WAR – BUT HOW?
WHEN ALIENS FIGHT IN THE HEAVENS

The plot that was discovered in Alexandria turned out to be about turning the aliens against each other to start a war that will destroy the Earth.

Unquill, Kenneth and Savannah have to overcome time and the language barrier in order to prevent a catastrophic event that will deplete the Earth of its atmosphere and will surely kill all of mankind.

Will they make it? Will the aliens listen to these "insignificant" beings? Kenneth and Savannah had just started molding their lives into the destiny that has become their purpose, while Unquill has found a way to prevent himself from turning into the one person everyone fears. Will all this be snuffed into nothing when aliens destroy their world?

EXCERPT
SHE LAY on her back, putting her hands between her head and the ground. She took in a long, deep breath and then let it out all at once. She said, “Tomorrow I may not be alive.”

Unquill continued lying on his side, listening to the sounds of the insects all around him. A cricket hopped in front of his face. He did not notice it.

Kaloa Syncrate said in a solemn voice, “I've heard about your designation. Enemy of humanity, isn't that a kicker? I'll be the second, if all goes well. You see, there's a plan in place once the computer comes back online. We never expected it to remain offline forever. Once it comes back online, things will happen very fast. The connections are still active. No one has stopped trying to access the central computer.

“By now, I think you're wondering why your face appeared on the screen as Hinjo Junta, haven't you? I don't know how much information you've been able to gather in the last few days since all this started. Since you are an enemy of humanity, though, I can tell you easily enough. Once the computer comes back online, there will be nowhere for either of us to hide. My crimes will be revealed to the world, just as your location will become immediately apparent to anyone with reliable sources of information. Perhaps I should explain, though.”

Unquill, who felt a growing sense of disquiet, said to her, “Perhaps you should.”

“We—the organization I belong to—have arranged a series of incidents across the world aimed at a singular objective. It's clear that the Soonseen are ready to fight with each other. Clear, at least, to anyone who has paid attention to the movements of ships in orbit. They have been evaluating conditions on the surface. They have never done so before. It is very probable, judging by this behavior, that they are preparing for their conflict to take place on the ground..."

Meet the Author

G.J. Winters “fell into” writing when a well-meaning teacher of his submitted his Creative Writing assignment for publication in the school paper. The local paper picked up the article and asked G.J. for publishing rights, to which the young G.J. agreed with some hesitation, as he felt “that wasn’t one of my best writings at the time.” The reality was that this article was written when G.J. was a junior in high school.
The article, which was a fictionalized version of a local myth surrounding a famous abandoned house near a swamp, was an assignment turned in as part of a mid-term exam. The teacher, Miss Mendez, thought G.J.’s writing was “exemplary” and showed “natural, raw writing talent for a person his age." The assignment called for “providing details to a local urban myth – provide background, using a local resident’s POV, and close with a vague hint of authenticity and realism."
The story, entitled “The Old Mansion by the Swamp,” appeared in the high school paper as a short story, but was later serialized in the local paper in 6 parts. G.J. added more characters and even a sub-story (which later became a story of its own, “I Was Shirley Massey” – a story which centered on a member of the fictional family who resided in the Massey Mansion in the late 70s and disappeared without a trace).
With the success of both of his original series, G.J. thought to venture into writing longer stories, this time with futuristic themes, as he has always been fascinated with travelling through time, future crimes, apocalyptic themes, and stories set in civilizations from the future.
G.J. identifies with sci-fi writers such as Isaac Asimov (“Kept me awake through most evenings in college.”) and Margaret Peterson Haddix (“My girlfriend at the time had fits of jealousy over my fanatical tendencies towards this author.”).
G.J. holds a degree in Chemistry, is an intern at the R&D division of a pharmaceutical manufacturing company, and lives with girlfriend Deidre, a magazine editor.
