Despite living a millionaire’s life of material luxury, he’s haunted by crippling despair—and the dark secrets buried deep in his psyche.

But only after a personal journey more terrifying and, ultimately, more devastating than his last fateful trip into space.Praise for Gateway“When an author of the stature of Frederik Pohl says that . . . Gateway is the best thing he has ever written, it deserves careful attention.
