Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I wanted this novel to not be just another science fiction novel. My editor once described this as "John Wayne meets Star Trek". My main character is a man of principal, who has struggles, loss, failure and pain, but works through them all to stand with courage and integrity. There is a little bit of everything in here for everybody: romance, action, intrigue, world politics, techy gadgets, and engaging characters you will love, and some not-so-much. I painstakingly took 9 years to craft this work, paining special attention to make this work of science fiction scientifically plausible when possible, with every detail throughout accurate and correct. I strove especially to make sure the editing was as perfect as it could be, observing punctuation and grammar edits until I thought my eyes would bleed. Throughout the book are themes of patriotism and honor, hoping to show the better parts of who we can be, even in the face of severe struggles.

Best regards,
Morris E. Graham

About the Author

Hi. My name is Morris E. Graham and I've recently published my debut sci-fi novel. I live in central Arkansas, USA. I am married, and father of four, 58 years old. I work in technical support, but my love is creative writing. I literally can't listen to the radio, watch TV, or observe people just living life without getting some springboard idea to write about. My first novel, "Warzone: Nemesis" is a military science fiction novel, but I view it as much, much more. You might think that a military sci-fi book would just be about techy gadgets and violence, but I took the time and care to write about characters, and I believe my characters are engaging. It became evident when the word count became 175,000 words that I would have to break it in two pieces and offer a second volume. I have 75% of volume 2 of the three part trilogy complete, and at some point in the next month I will return to finish it. The Sequel will be entitled "Warzone: Operation Wolf Hunt", and the final installment of this trilogy will be entitled "Warzone: Unlikely Alliance", hopefully released in 2014. I started this project in 2004. One thing I can say, I believe in detail and accuracy in confirmable facts. Whether it be to confirm that jalapeno poppers were actually being offered for sale in 1985, or to the smallest detail about military protocols. I hope you enjoy the book(s) as much as did writing them.
 
best regards, Morris E. Graham

Format: Kindle Edition
Very long and tedious read with entirely too much detail. The plot has potential but crawls along at a snails pace. I didn't like the way the technology was used or the constant dry dialogue and repetitiveness of information. I didn't like the editing job or the silly symbols, or the use of the foreign letters. This takes away from immersion and enjoyment. The characters feel flat. I received a finished copy from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

Morris Graham's novel is a real page-turner. I appreciate the careful research which certainly shows. For example, the part on the Vietnam war was very believable. He has the idioms, the specific locations and the feel of the place down pat. I know, I was there, and even had responsibility for the area he describes. This is a science fiction novel for those that like accounts of men at war, with heavy emphasis on honor and courage.
The book is not perfect. If I had the choice, I would give it a 4.5 star rating, but I thought 4 stars was too low for quality entertainment.
Being from New Mexico, I appreciated the reference to Navajos and the respectful way the author treated them.
The weakness of the story for me was the overly-detailed account of combat on the moon. I think the average reader might bog down here. My advice is to plow on through. The action to follow is well-crafted and the character development is satisfying.
All-in-all a great science fiction adventure in the grand, old classic tradition, but with some modern twists.

So this is an updated review of Warzone: Nemesis! The author sent me the updated edition of the book and I've decided to change some things in my review. I've decided to splice the two together. Enjoy!

Thank you to the author, Morris E. Graham, for gifting me with a copy of Warzone: Nemesis in exchange for an honest review!

This is one of those times that I hate having to give a star rating to a book. I've been mulling this over for the past few days and I'm still not totally satisfied with my choice.

Now after I finished the book, I had a review drafted up (this was a couple weeks ago) but I just couldn't get this feeling out of my head that I was misreading things. So I sent an email to Mr. Graham and we had a chat about the premise of his book and the reality of many of the things he incorporated. I researched some things (such as the gravity on different planets) and he explained why he did certain things. All in all, it was very beneficial for the both of us: a lot of my confusion was cleared up and I suggested places he could add a sentence or two to clarify things. After that, he sent me a revised version which I read and then reworked my review. I won't tell you what my original star rating was because that will just set a certain image in your mind. So without further ado, here's the new and improved review!

The main idea presented in this book was very interesting indeed. Especially with secret government activity and such because honestly, who think that the government tells the people absolutely everything? It'd be a threat to security and all that. So that made it very intriguing.

I do think that the middle of the book was lacking a bit of direction.

Starts off with a great premise: A flying 'disc' UFO crash lands on a Navajo Indian Reservation in 1959. Despite the numerous types (3 on the first page alone) I was drawn in by the story of the Indian boy encountering the craft and its dying occupants. And it kept me going through more of the tribe getting involved in investigating the craft. Although it seemed rather strange that the Indians said it was nothing that they ever saw before, yet instantly somehow knew it was a vessel.

Then it all turned a sharp corner when it went off the reservation and horribly wrong with even more typos. Actual sample: [The two men chatted about the implications of the files&rsquos photographs and the possible trouble if the information reached the wrong hands.]

Add made up government bureaucracies mixed with real presidents, pretty naive information about the craft (a hard drive and computer- I guess the aliens had them in 1959), continuity errors (element x somehow became alloy x - which serves as a crucial plot point throughout) and by the way an alloy is defined as a mixture of metals and doesn't exist in nature making finding an alloy x impossible, so element x would have been more appropriate in the first place.

Then the story skips two full years without explanation, but unfortunately doesn't skip painfully repetitious section after section where the author basically just copies what one person said to another person and another person ad infinitum under the guise of a 'report'. Note to author: you don't have to repeat the facts every time, just say the President learned the secret was out. And unless the food is somehow important to the story, we don't need to know what each character had for breakfast and how many cups of coffee he consumed during any particular day.
