Cranky - The Book Curmudgeon


***** 5 Cranky Stars *****

Science fiction isn’t my usual genre since every time I read them I end up feeling rather common and lacking much needed brain cells, especially when the story takes you into quantum physics and the likes.



When I picked up Milijun, I was a bit uneasy and thought I would get disoriented early on and end up getting bored with the book. Instead, I found myself pleasantly surprised by how well-written and readable Milijun was. Yes, the ever present “big-science-words” were

Milijun, by talented Australian author, Clayton Graham, gives us an interesting sci-fi tale, somewhat reminiscent of Wyndham’s classic, The Midwich Cuckoos. Graham’s tale begins in 2179 AD on Mare Moscoviense, on the Lunar Far Side. A miner, Simon Cordell, is drilling in a cave when he comes upon what appears to be a glass-like table atop a slim pedestal on which sits a sphere, the size of a football. He involuntarily touches it but nothing happens. Turning, he suddenly sees alien beings in the ...more

I just read an article on the advisability of sending messages into space to reach out to aliens in other galaxies. Stephen Hawking advises against it, saying any intelligent life form that could respond to our messages would likely arrive like Cortes did when he basically annihilated the Aztecs. In Clayton Graham’s novel, “milijun,” the aliens arrive not like conquistadors, but like a suitor looking for a compatible mate to sire strengthened offspring. A fascinating take on aliens arriving on E ...more

If ever there was a time to feel sorry for an alien race, it would be now.

Conspiracies, double agents, technological advancements, greed, and self-preservation are in abundance – and that’s just the humans.

Aliens, frozen in time, have accidentally been discovered deep inside the moon. Finally, proof of life beyond our own. Scientists race at the chance to study this rare find. Unknowingly, this initiates a series of events nobody could have predicted. The capabilities of these creatures are sho

A group of sleeping aliens are discovered hidden below the surface of the moon. Once disturbed, they awake, and hea to Earth, to carry out a plan known only to them.

first of all, I love that the aliens landed right here in Australia. Aliens usually land in America, so this was a nice change. This story is set in the late 22nd century, but aside from some political upheval, the world is reasonably familiar, and almost felt like present day. This provides an anchor point for those who may not read

Milijun actually started as a short story. The birth of the alien RNasia occurred in the short story, and when they decided to wing their way to Earth I knew it could not end there. They seemed to want their universal journey to be worth something; they wanted their mission fulfilled. So I decided to oblige them.
The book is about more than an alien incursion into the Australian outback. It asks questions about our place in the universe, or multiverses (as we are now led to believe may be a possi

Not a genre I read a lot of. Perhaps it was the promise of 'alien interaction' instead of the more common 'alien abduction' that had me intrigued. Whatever it was I was keeping my fingers crossed that, written by a retired aerospace engineer, Milijun wasn't going to be bogged down in technicalities as had another book of the genre I'd read not so long ago.

Alas no need to worry. Milijun is very readable. Hugely compelling. Just what are these aliens and just what do they want? Are mother and son,

Fast paced sci-fi adventure
The year is 2179 and Laura Sinclair is on holiday with her 14 year old son, Jason. The Australia they are living in is very different from the Australia of today and I enjoyed the changes. Their peaceful holiday is interrupted by the arrival of an alien race. The consequences of this are devastating, and the story revolves around Laura and Jason simply trying to survive as they discover more about the aliens. This is a well-conceived plot, with credible characters. It

It's been a long time since I read a science fiction novel and since I've liked them in the past, I was eager to accept a copy from the author when he offered it to me.

When Simon Cordell’s drill rig broke through the crust on the Moon’s dark side opening the hidden lunar cave system, he had no clue what his discovery would mean to Earth.

A swarm...leaving the cave like bees leaving a hive. But what were they? Where were they going? Where had they come from? Most importantly, what were they doing?

I loved finding a sci-fi book that started off in the moon and then spent the rest of the book mostly in Australia and not America - nothing against America but it’s nice to have somewhere else in the world set as the main location

You are left wondering what is happening at the start of the story, set somewhat into the future after mankind has destroyed most of the world, when a strange encounter takes place on the moon - sorry, but I don’t like to give away any plot points - that’s for you to e

Miljun was such a well-crafted sci-fi/thriller that I am still thinking about. It was so original, and I was hooked from the first page.

The world building is breathtaking. Clayton Graham knows how to use description. He never over does it, but gives us enough to feel as if we are watching a movie, more than reading a book. His writing is beautiful. I was captivated by every sentence and it is clear, Graham is a step above in his w

Thought-provoking and entertaining

This is a very well imagined and fresh take on the well-trodden SciFi story of how humans respond to first contact with interstellar aliens. This story is set in the future and mostly in Australia and the author has done an excellent job to create an image of what Australia would be like in 160 years. It is well written and moves along at a great pace, which kept me turning the pages. I liked the main protagonists, Laura and her son, Jason who added a strong hum

Alien Invasion on an Entirely Different Level - Literally

Milijun is an incredibly well imagined alien invasion, unlike any first contact story I have ever read or seen in a movie. The scientific research that went into this book is impressive. Graham’s concept of how completely “alien” an alien could be is astonishing. Gone are the assumptions of “life as we know it”. Graham has conceived of life as we could not possibly imagine it.

The story opens with action, then takes a step back and steadil

This story is about Laura and her son Jason who are having a holiday in Australia, they both see lights in the sky and once they realise what it is they run for their lives. I won’t give any spoilers because the author says it all in his blurb. What a fantastic story and I’m not that into sci- fi but this book had changed my mind.

Intriguing sci-fi
This is an original take on what alien invasion might really be like. And it will scare you! I really enjoyed this plot and found the action gripping and entertaining. Quite apart from the particulars of this alien invasion, (which I will not reveal because it will completely spoil the plot), I liked the vision of Australia in 2179, after a cataclysmic war. Unfortunately, I can see that the changes will appeal to some people! The characters are well-drawn; the mother/son bond re

A feisty heroine who has a good relationship with her son; a setting that’s gloriously different – to most of us – aliens with brains not ray guns, and a plot that seems at times to meet itself coming back. What more could a Sci-Fan want? Nothing, but it’s there anyway in the form of a mystery or a milijun. Clayton Graham has won himself a new fan.

This story began a bit slowly, and I'd thought a 4-star rating would ensue, but the tale gathered pace, and it's ingenuity and complexity enthralled me. It's well imagined, the characters are easy to relate to, and the settings are well described. A thought-provoking look at alien-human interaction.

The standout feature of this book for me is the author's descriptive abilities. The story was involving from the first page and, as a fan of science fiction, I enjoyed this book a great deal. The book has some nice twists and turns, and is easy to follow. There is a nice sense of adventure, and Clayton Graham gives the reader a nice dose of characterization, as well.

This was the creepiest book I ever read. Humans can't get along or agree, so humans and aliens don't stand a chance. If it did happen that humans and aliens met ,this is the scenerio that would take place.
