Only You Can Save Mankind

When Johnny starts playing the latest computer game, the last thing he expects is the message that flashes across his screen: WE SURRENDER.

Synopsis

IF NOT YOU, WHO ELSE?

As the mighty alien fleet from the latest computer game thunders across the screen, Johnny prepares to blow them into the usual million pieces. And they send him a message: We surrender.

They’re not supposed to do that! They’re supposed to die. And computer joysticks don’t have ‘Don’t Fire’ buttons . . .

But it’s only a game, isn’t it. Isn’t it?

The first book in the Johnny Maxwell trilogy.
