Item description for Influx by Jason Just J. C. Jones...

From 2003 AntiSF Award winning author J.C. Jones, comes a dramatic tale of discovery, military action and adventure, as the world struggles to contain an unknown space-borne invasion force.


After stumbling across what appears to be a covert Lunar landing, Brett Williams, a junior software engineer at NASA's JPL, unwittingly discovers that humanity is not alone in the universe.

The discovery quickly turns into full-blown military defense, as the force turns its attention Earthwards.

A hastily assembled team of military and civilian experts is the only thing that stands in its way.

The eve of destruction is dawning--humanity's first alien contact may just turn out to be its last.

Reviews - What do customers think about Influx?

Simplistic and not-so-hard SF  Dec 27, 2007
SciFi should be a genre with truly original ideas. I enjoyed the start of the book and the analysis of seismic data pointing to something happening on the lunar surface.

Unfortunately the rest of the book is a mixture of old ideas with very little realism. If you've seen the Replicators on Stargate and recall Jean Luc Picard saving Earth after being turned to a Borg, then you've been exposed to all the ideas this book has to offer.

Of course a new blending of old ideas can seem fresh, but a combination of unimaginative plotting and one-dimensional characters makes for a quick, but not very compelling, read.

If you're looking for a short action story, then this isn't bad at all, but if you're looking for thought-provoking ideas, look elsewhere.

Not good.  Apr 7, 2006
A gift, so I didn't choose it, but this was a disappointment. Poor expression, superfluous minor characters given far too much space, simplistic and predictable plot with Independence Day-size plot holes... oh dear. But it wasn't written for me, I guess. If you liked Cloud Atlas or anything by Neal Stephenson, this is not for you either.
I hope there is a sequel - an author to keep an eye out for  Dec 22, 2005
When Brett Williams discovers some unusual seismic activities on the moon while working on some routine NASA transmissions from the old Apollo 12 landing site he is fortunate that his supervisor takes his findings seriously. Earth is about to be visited by aliens - but not the friendly ones in ET!

This is probably the most realistic feeling alien invasion type novel I have read. It is filled with believable and interesting characters who use their brains as well as the odd dose of sheer luck. The story also easily kept me hooked till the end - which has a nice twist to it that makes me want to read more from this author. I consider this book a fortunate find.
A great read  Jun 8, 2005
I really enjoyed this book. It starts off with a great concept and, through multiple plot lines, each of the major characters are drawn together right through to the heart-stopping end. Ziggy's character really grew on me as the book went on, and I want to see some more of him in the sequel. Please tell me there is a sequel on the way!!! Let's go kick some alien butt!!
War of the worlds with attitude  Apr 27, 2005
Strap yourself in for a rollercoaster ride of alien invasion with attitude.
This book is everything Independence Day could and should have been.
Take away the Hollywood drivel, add in a dose of real-life characters, realistic military action (and reaction) to an ever increasing worldwide threat, an excellent mix of adrenaline pumping action and frighteningly realistic aliens and you end up with Influx.
War of the worlds with plenty of attitude and action for Sci-Fi buffs and military fans alike.
Definitely a highly recommended read. Five stars.
