Author George Ivanoff has stated ‘Nil By Mouth’ was his, “favourite grown-up novel of the year”


How do you help a man that doesn’t want to be helped?
A man used by Aliens as an incubation tank, who believes his only friends are Aliens,
finds himself thrust back out into his natural environment.
He becomes an Outcast when he finds himself back amongst humans,
unable to adjust to life without his Alien overseers.

Alone, Ale stands between two opposing forces – Aliens and Humans.
His allegiances to both are stretched to breaking point.

How can this damaged Human protect his loved ones from an Alien force so powerful that they dominate our planet? How can one man make the difference?
Can a man, this broken, find love again? And where?

This is his story.

    It was a pleasure to see it at the Aurealis Awards here in Canberra – strange to see Garth Nix reading from “Sabriel” – since it won an Aurealis Award a full twenty years ago.
