What if you could travel back to some dark time in our human history, not just to unravel the hundreds of unanswered questions that were lost with time, but to stop it from ever happening? The atomic bomb. The Cold War. Hitler's Reign. Who shot JFK? The list goes on.
Maybe we too have some traumatic event in our personal lives that we'd kill to change. We would all jump at the opportunity to take advantage of this technology without thinking. But at what price would we be willing to pay? Could w

Coming of a time machine!

Jeff Dawson remains one of my favorite authors. Not only are his stories salted with a wonderful dry wit, but he also seems Hell-bent on blasting through the neat lines that have decimated the creativity of so many authors over the years. In "Gateway: Pioche" he has done it once again. This time he and Larry Welch have successfully given this coming of age travel story a time-travel twist, and the result is a fascinating romp that will keep you reading long afte

Gateway : Pioche is a perfect amalgamation of science fiction and thriller. It is a well crafted book that a read might feel a difficult to dive into but once you get the gist of the story, you are totally into it and will not feel like putting the book down. What I personally liked about the book is the balance that Jeff has maintained throughout the story. Nothing looks over the top and although it is a fictional story but you don’t feel like you are reading one. Also, must appreciate the dry ...more

Gateway:Pioche was an enthralling ride. As a filmmaker, I was reading page by page as if I were watching a scene from an incredible action thriller film and when author Jeff Dawson introduced time travel, I was hooked!

The story starts with very intelligent somewhat geeky group of young 20 somethings just graduated and looking for an adventure. They head out to Las Vegas inspired by the movies Rounders (one of my favourites, by the way) and 21 (another fave) where young grads try to gamble their

Gateway: Pioche is an interesting story driven by well-developed characters and a unique premise. The story kicks off with four grad students who want to celebrate the culmination of their successful college career with an adventurous getaway vacation before entering the workforce. The characters in the story are well educated and immediately likeable: Muki, a Vietnamese girl with a knack for self-defense who came to America to escape the NVA, Judith, the great-granddaughter of a man who happene ...more

I was given a free copy for my honest review.

I chose "Gateway: Pioche" because I liked the idea of new adult characters traveling back in time, but I've found more than time-travel in this novel. There is hilarity, action, suspense.
The characters are eclectic and it's hard to pick a favorite between Star Trek fanatics and gorgeous girls with bad temper.
Reading the adventures of Muki, Abdul, Larry and Judith in the past, I start to daydream about events I would love to see: the Egyptian building

I was given a copy of this book to review. First off, Sci-Fi is not my normal genre. However, I found the idea of the book very interesting. The author showed extensive knowledge in many scientific and historic areas. There were things about the characters that annoyed me which lost a star. The fact that they elicited a response at all is a positive.

I enjoyed the story. There were many implausible traits with the characters (all geniuses) that made me ask, "Huh?" A woman such as Judith, a playma

I am often hesitant to read novels that include time travel, but this one was well done and very enjoyable. We are introduced to a diverse group of students who embark upon a vacation of sorts upon graduating and get themselves in trouble. They find a place to hide but it isn't all that it seems. This is where the real plot begins to play out and unfold. The story is engaging from start to finish, with interesting characters who have been fairly well developed. Their personality really shines th ...more

I found this book a bit hard to get into in the beginning and then once I found myself interested in the characters, the story changed. There was a lot to take in and just when I found myself getting into the book again, it ended. Although I became interested in the time travel, I found myself wondering about the thugs the characters encountered from the first conflict. This was cleared up in the end paving way for a sequel though. I truly admire the author's knowledge on so many different subje ...more

Q&A with Anne-Rae...: Ask Jeff Dawson author of Gateway Pioche anything! 3 5 Jan 05, 2014 07:00PM  
I spent twenty-five years in the wonderful world of road construction. Back surgery in 2010 put the skids on that career. My body couldn’t handle the rigors of twelve to sixteen hour days, six to seven days a week. As I convalesced, licking my wounds, I wondered what to do next. Not being out in the sun getting baked, or dodging traffic, was going to be a hard act to follow. Seriously, what else d ...more
