The military won’t stop until you’re dead and all you have is a new extra-terrestrial friend with incredible mental powers. Some would say that luck was on your side.

In 1990 when a distant alien race, called the Nell, discovers that Earth has a new space telescope capable of discovering their distant planet, they take action. A voyager makes the many-year journey to disable the Hubble, but when the craft does not return, a rescue mission must be forged. It will take the friendship of a human to make it a success. The year is now 2005 and Gable Flagstaff has found himself on the run and tangled in a political plot to exploit an alien crash landing. The military is after him; a scientist wants to dissect him, and he’s got a new friend he can’t shake.

  well written , 12/02/2006
Reviewer: Chad Van Auken
I am not a big book reader and usually I find it difficult to finish the books I have started. There has been four books that I have read front to back in two day periods, and this is one of them. When you open it up it is hard to close.

  A Very Good Start , 02/28/2007
Reviewer: Peter Waughtel
I am happy for Mr. VanAuken! To create a well written and suprisingly fresh first book is no small feat. I enjoyed the way the subject matter was treated, down to earth and surounded with enough twists to keep the story compelling and enough variations on the standard "sci-fi" themes to keep me interested. I finished wanting to know more about the events and characters that unfolded in front of me as I read. I hope Mr. VanAuken feels the sme and expands this storyline in future efforts. Keep up the good work!

Reviewer: Debbie Cumming
I thoroughly enjoyed The Nell Rescue. I find it hard to believe this is Mr. VanAuken's first attempt a writing a book. I had the feeling I was right there watching the whole story unfold. Very descriptive writing with an easy flow. Fun and interesting story and content. Certainly left me wanting to read more from this up and coming new author. Keep the stories coming, Andrew.
