Publisher Comments:

Gateway opened on all the wealth of the Universe...and on reaches of unimaginable horror. When prospector Bob Broadhead went out to Gateway on the Heechee spacecraft, he decided he would know which was the right mission to make him his fortune. Three missions later, now famous and permanently rich, Robinette Broadhead has to face what happened to him and what he is...in a journey into himself as perilous and even more horrifying than the nightmare trip through the interstellar void that he drove himself to take!

William Gaboda, February 13, 2010 (view all comments by William Gaboda)
One of the classics of latter day science fiction, Gateway is endlessly imaginative, creating the mysterious Heechee while extrapolating a crowded, hungry and miserable Earth. Refugees - future day Forty-niners - hock themselves (and their relatives!) for a chance at finding the left-behind artifacts of the long departed Heechee by flying off on the Heechees' eons old interstellar ships. The lucky few who find remnants of the Heechee are rewarded with vast riches, but most find little and many don't return at all.

Gateway is the first of a series by Frederick Pohl, who is a protean master of hard science fiction. His vision is by turns dazzling, bleak and, always, fascinating.

If you are new to the Heechee saga or Frederick Pohl, Gateway is the place to start.
