Top of the Food Chain is a purely fictional account of one of the great mysteries of
mankind. Each year thousands of individuals worldwide disappear without a trace.
What if these disappearances were proven to be the result of extraterrestrials? What if
the motives of this alien civilization were survival? Would the countries of the world
unite to solve such a problem if the only areas that experienced abductions were
poverty-stricken third world areas that are facing extreme over population? Who can
answer questions like these?
Mankind is a creature that has evolved into an intellectual life form because of a
radical twist in his evolutionary path. The food chain that we depend upon is also a
product of evolution. Any sudden change whether by nature or by man could force
mankind to search for alternate food sources for survival. Who can predict the choices
man would make when faced with starvation?
While this story and all characters are purely fiction, the reader is encouraged to stop
at intervals and try and decide what choices they might make if forced with the
certainty of death. Our perspectives change greatly as would other life forms. The
great distances in space are challenges to our exploration of the Cosmos. Perhaps the
distances are great for a reason. The less contact one life form has with another life
form the better the chances of survival for both civilizations. This is a lesson that
mankind will surely learn once he faces the question of who will remain at the Top of
the Food Chain.
