Ever since the first stories about aliens were written, the "what ifs?" have been explored. Suppose there were intelligent beings observing earth from another galaxy? Would they view the inhabitants of this world as inferior? Would their interests serve mankind or themselves, or both? A FLICKER FROM AFAR captures the flare of the old 1950's science fiction movies viewed on Saturday afternoons when life wasn't as hectic or complicated. In the story, life on earth is about to change dramatically as man's penchant for violence is leading to mass destruction. All live with the harsh reality of impending world war, the disease, starvation and death brought about by man's thirst for power. But another force, representatives of an alien civilization, arrives to take control of earth. What are their motives? Do they come to save or to conquer?
