April 9, 2016: Cold Coffee Press Book Review for Milijun by Clayton Graham
FIVE STAR REVIEW


Mankind has always had a fascination with extraterrestrials which dates from ice-age cave walls, ancient Egyptian carvings all the way to Milijun by Clayton Graham.

This well written novel explores our deepest darkest fears that as a planet we are not ready for an alien incursion, in fact we pretend our intellect can save us. However, in Australia 2179 AD main character Laura Sinclair is faced with the unimaginable when she and her son Jason witness aliens descending to earth.

It is earth's exploration and mining on the lunar surface that begins the conflict that ultimately results in the alien incursion into the Australian outback. Laura and her son Jason are faced with alien-driven technology that severely tests a mother's love and resolve to protect her offspring at whatever cost.
It is my intent to share a quote to show you the author's writing style without spoiling the story.

"It was almost 6:30 pm when Laura came across what would later be called the Rawlinna nest. The sun was dropping in the western sky as she staggered wearily to the top of a modest incline and surveyed the collection of old aluminum shacks spread out before her.
She dropped to the ground, partly to avoid detection but also from sheer fatigue. Her face was covered with sweat and there were several dirt marks down both cheeks where she had attempted to clear bothersome flies from her face. Closing her eyes briefly, she sat in silence, not wanting to act in haste but acutely aware that time was crucial. Earlier, she had made a brief stop to drink water from the choppa's emergency rations but now felt the need for more. She quenched her thirst then nibbled at a foul tasting energy bar as she thought through her next move."

I invite you to the Australia outback where things are not as you might imagine.

Milijun is a striking name for this novel. I dare you to find its meaning. It is an Australian aboriginal word which also has a Serb-Croatian context.

Apr 19, 2016. Tracy Terry PEN AND PAPER
FIVE STAR REVIEW

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, Laura and Jason (the 'First Seen'), able to trust Major General Ord of the Australian Defence Force or the mysterious Uriel, enigmatic head of Milijun, a reclusive research facility in the outback?

A well written 'extraterrestrial' novel and yet at its heart is the very human story of a mother whose strength and resolve is tested time and time again as not only the future of her son but indeed everything she knows is turned on its head.

Initially alternating between several different threads, the characters and their stories eventually entwine, coming together to reveal all in a wonderfully thought provoking ending that doesn't disappoint.

From the Author

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 possibility).


The novel explores the relationship between a mother and son. How far can it be stretched before the links break? How far would a mother go to save her son? Would she be prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice, or undertake actions she would never have deemed possible prior to the alien incursion?


Above all, Milijun explores the question what would mankind do when faced with an intelligence it cannot understand? It's a good question, for it may happen someday. We are not currently prepared, of course. We are light years away from understanding how we should behave in such a circumstance. Milijun challenges our mindsets through the eyes of a mother and son, and as such is perhaps more powerful and meaningful than if that challenge was through the eyes of the United Nations or the President of the United States.


In the end, Milijun probably asks more questions than it answers. But it does raise the questions. We cannot relax on Earth forever, ignorant of our cosmic surroundings, idling our time away, creating a mirage of prosperity, which appears to create an equally ferocious misery.


Writing Milijun was a labour of love. It was not easy, but neither was it hard. Science Fiction is a love of mine, has been since I was a teenager, escaping to new worlds in the back streets of Stockport, England, where I grew up as a child. Halcyon days, when education and school milk were free, and summers were real summers. We didn't have much, but we had enough.


Milijun is my debut novel, and for me the realisation of a dream.
