Product description

Review

"This is a substantial anthology, good value for the money, 17 stories from top authors, the bulk of them original. The stories are solidly entertaining. The best story in the book and the one that gives the strongest impression of having been centrally influenced by and in dialog with Pohl's own work, is Cory Doctorow's novella 'Chicken Little.' Doctorow's updated high-tech take on creatures who have immortality but not eternal youth, continuing to age through their extended lives, is particularly ingenious. I wouldn't be surprised to see this one show up on an award ballot next year." --Locus

"This is truly a smashing volume, a testament to the impact that Pohl has had on several generations of SF writers and readers." --Cory Doctorow, boingboing.com on Gateways

"Pohl has influenced many of the premier authors in the field of science fiction. More than two dozen writers have contributed, from Brian Aldiss to Connie Willis and even (thanks to a reprinted chapter) the late Isaac Asimov. This anthology conveys Pohl as an iconic figure. " --Publishers Weekly

"There are more than a dozen stories and a raft of appreciations. As a series of gateways into the individual writers here, they work well; as gateways into appreciation of Pohl's work, they work even better: David Brin has a long and shiny story toward the front of the book, 'Shoresteading'; Cory Doctorow has the thought-provoking 'Chicken Little' toward the end; and almost every story, poem, and appreciation in between is well worth your time...and the time it'll take you to find any of the Pohl works you've missed." --San Diego Union-Tribune

"Each author has written a story that he or she feels reflects the effect Pohl has had on the field--in the style of writing, the narrative tone, or the subject matter. It says a lot about Pohl's career that the authors represented here themselves span many decades and styles. Every story here is uniquely nuanced; all of them as entertaining and thought provoking as Pohl's fiction. " --SFF Chat

"Fred Pohl was, at the dawn of time. Is, today. And will always be with us, at the top." --Harlan Ellison

"There is something in Gateways for every sci-fi reader. If it isn't just the fannish pleasure of seeing some of your favorite authors having a bit of fun, it might be discovering some old or new sci-fi star telling their favorite Fred Pohl story, or maybe just the delight of finding a little genre gem tucked away in there." --New York Journal of Books
