If you happen to listen in to a conversation by a group of 21st Century shamen comparing notes about significant early influences, without exception each one of them will point to one or many science fiction stories as an important early influence.
Gateways Books and Tapes is delighted to host the best of the best in visionary science fiction and fantasy.
"When we see hidden worlds revealed, and Otherness expressed as a story of real things happening to people just like ourselves, we transport to those realities much more easily. Of what use is all our philosophy if it applies only to the realm of thought? Here the sum total of otherworldly understanding is directly expressed in action, and you may well be the richer for it." -- From the Introduction to Retro Visions by Editor E.J. Gold
