A dark mystery has been buried beneath the sands of the Sahara for eons. In a basement in New Mexico, four poker buddies find reason to believe that a startling secret is out there, and these four amateur adventurers are about to uncover it.

Curiosity propels mild-mannered professor Will and his three friends to the Sahara to excavate a site where radar has detected trilithic stones hidden beneath the sand. There they stumble upon an ancient artifact that will change their lives—and the world—forever: a gateway between planets, linking Earth to distant worlds where they will discover wonders and terrors beyond imagining. Now each traveler must play a crucial role in unraveling an ancient mystery, the solution to which may reveal the true origins of the human race—if they can survive the journey back to Earth.

    " Basically stargate sg1, which I love. However the book does not seem well written. There isn't much character development. But worth the read anyway :-) "

    " I really enjoyed this story. Had to stay up late to see what happened. I'm glad my current research turned up this title. "

    " Great concept, but a little disappointing. I don't know if the author plans a sequel, but I know I would appreciate one. The last fourth of the book felt like the author ran out of ideas and just ended it as quickly as possible. "

About the Author
Author Jack Williamson

Jack Williamson (1908–2006) published his first short story in 1928 and produced entertaining, thought-provoking science fiction from then on. The second person named Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America, he was always in the forefront of the field, being the first to write fiction about genetic engineering (he invented the term), antimatter, and other cutting-edge science. A Renaissance man, he was a master of fantasy and horror as well as science fiction.
