The Object Of Our Attention, by Chris Pearson
An evil ‘Entity’ has taken refuge in the core of our planet, where it cannot be reached by its enemies, but it has to emerge in the end, as the earth’s core is not hot enough to allow it to recover its strength. Because of the presence of the Entity, creatures from other parts of the galaxy have been watching Earth for untold ages, sometimes taking a message of hope down to them. The latest messenger is called ‘Dove’. On earth she is a pop singer. In the monitoring station orbiting Jupiter she was known as Glindra.
