Explaining the New Cover Style
Eagle-eyed readers will have spotted a new cover style appearing on some recent Gateway titles; for instance: So, what gives? Well, a couple of things. Firstly, we’ve published a lot of titles over the last three-and-a-bit years and now, inevitably, the production line is slowing down, as ‘new’ titles are becoming harder to find. So […]
New Title: The Forging of the Shadows
Gateway is always excited to bring you a new author, but we confess to certain extra thrill – and an undeniable touch of favouritism – at the the prospect of welcoming Oliver Johnson to the list. Oliver has serious genre pedigree, having spent some time in bookselling, as a contributing writer to White Dwarf magazine, […]

New Book of the Week: Saturn Patrol
Back in the ’50s, when novels could be 40,000 words long and the pulps ruled the world, publishing was a very different beast than it is now. Dozens of short, purpose-written books were published out each month, in popular genres such as Romance, Crime, War Stories, Westerns and, of course, Science Fiction. The writers for […]
From the Archives: Phillip Mann on The Disestablishment of Paradise
Phillip Mann has written a post on his blog about how new book, The Disestablishment of Paradise, came to be published (and how pleased he is about it). Today is rather special for me.
