Publisher's Summary

Nicholas Carver began his day in Yorkshire. He will end it aboard an interstellar superyacht. Before he leaves Earth, Carver must race across England in a desperate flight from police and aliens. The police want to arrest him. The aliens want to do something far worse. All Carver wants is to survive.
Join Carver, an English mapmaker and surveyor, as he is caught in a tale of intrigue that spans the cosmos. Together with Allie, a mysterious girl who bursts into his life, Carver reluctantly sets out to solve the greatest mystery humanity has ever faced. His success or failure will spell the dawn of a golden age or the ultimate doom of mankind.
By author Alec Merta, From Here to Nearly There is a novel that combines the best elements of a travelogue with those of a taut science-fiction thriller. By combining science with elements of real UFO and paranormal reports, Merta crafts a believable thriller that you will find hard to put down.
From Here to Nearly There is the first book of A Voyage in the Near Distance. The series tells the tale of two planets that are linked by an ancient mystery. One planet is a blue orb that orbits an average yellow star. It teems with human civilization. The second planet is Earth.
