This book was written for children, it was originally serialised on the podcast show KidsCastSciFi. It follows the adventures of two boys who accidentally discover some form of gateway, that takes them to other worlds or parallel universes. Enjoy.
Review from Canadian Writer Murielle Cyr
The Gateway is an entertaining science fiction story for teens and pre-teens. The action is fast-paced and the main characters, Barry and Tom, are believable and endearing. The author warns about the responsibility of exploring new worlds: Respect the world you enter and don't cause any harm to the inhabitants and their surroundings. The plot is easy to follow; the characters use their walkie-talkie to transport to other worlds, sharing and updating their technological knowledge with each other. Some editing is required in a few places but a sure winner with the younger reluctant reader.
Steve Adds: Thanks it also appeals to adult readers.
