|Plot Summary of Attack of the Graftonites|
This is one of the newest e-novels of Steven Gordon, the respectfull webmaster of the "Allscifi" site. This book is better than most of his other works (certainly better than The Main Insectoid Trilogy), and describes how Clifford Croft infiltrates maybe the nost dangerous planet of all - Grafton, the home of the fiercest warriors that have ever shown their face near Alliance space. Croft is trying to find out why the Graftonites infiltrated their neighbouring planets, and how they did it with such a tiny force. Basically, Croft is trying to find as much data as he can, as well as to prevent the Graftonites from uniting behind a man named Mo Quandry and attacking the Alliance.
