“The plot continues turning the further you get into it, never allowing the reader to stop reading since they already know the ending. And what an ending it is!” — amazon.com review
“As with the best in this genre, it was driven by the compelling and believable characters, with the technology being a backdrop not the focus.” — amazon.com review
Codrin has money, even status. A professor, no less. Not bad considering he’s only a Shreb. Until one day he loses it all, and has no choice but to gamble his family’s fate on a one-way ticket across the Gate. On the other side, in another world, he’ll build a new life.
Except there is something wrong with the Gate…
Steampunk collides with time-travel to inspire this story of isolation, hope, and revelation.
At 22,000 words, this Greyhart Press novella would be about 90 pages in paperback.
“Like some hybrid of Van Vogt and Charles Harness, Tim C. Taylor surprises us with worlds at strange angles to ours, and to each other, in a delicious piece of writing which ramps up excitingly through time distortions, grief, conflict, and peril, to paradoxical revelation. An excellent and provocative read.” — Ian Watson on Last Man Through the Gate. (Ian is an award-winning writer, author of seminal Warhammer 40k novels, and co-wrote the motion picture ‘A.I. Artificial Intelligence’ with Stanley Kubrick)
