Another World

Another World

Leaving Earth is the easy part. Surviving the trip to a nearby spiral arm of our own galaxy is a journey like no other.

Merritt Alder is done with Earth. The planet is polluted and overpopulated, and its people are hungry.

Earth’s first colony, Galena, is a pioneer world 10,000 light years away. It has clean air, unpolluted water, and continents of arable land.

For Merritt, the journey is only the beginning. Obstacles arise every step of the way, forcing compromise and sacrifice. And not everyone on the ship is pure of heart.

The bonds he forges on the journey will be the key to surviving on another world — a world anyone has yet to fully explore.

A world with secrets of its own.

Another World is a bold new entry in the realm of planet colonization and pioneer science fiction, an odyssey across our own galaxy to start a new life on Earth’s first colony.
