Although possessing an extensive body of work (7,000+ articles) in newspapers and magazines on topics ranging from the Hillside Strangler and police helicopters to model railroading and karate lessons from Elvis Presley’s bodyguard, Ed Parker, former Pasadena Star-News and San Gabriel Valley Tribune writer-editor Rocky McAlister is relatively new to fiction. He admits to having once won a poetry contest, although he concedes, “it involved an ex-girlfriend and alcohol.”
Earth's Last Warrior
Unidentified hostile forces have vaporized Earth’s population, and now they're back to loot the planet. But they made one mistake – they missed killing Jack Kincaid, USMC. With spaceships descending from the sky, Jack tosses back the last of his Tennessee whiskey. “What the hell,” he says, grabbing his rifle. “It’s a good day to die.”
In this fast-paced action adventure, with a solid military flavor and a dash of science fiction, highly decorated Force Recon Marine Jack Kincaid awakens to a world devoid of people. He sets off to see if anyone else survived and discovers scrappy TV cable news anchor Abby Rose on the run for her life. The two team up to save a handful of
survivors fleeing ruthless savages determined to kill the last of the people so carpetbagging aliens can turn Earth into an intergalactic garage sale.
Facing a “kill or be killed” reality, the Marine knows the only hope for humanity’s survival is taking the fight to the enemy. However, someone is sabotaging Kincaid’s efforts to save what’s left of humanity and keep Earth out of alien hands.
