SF Gateway Omnibus of the Week: Jack L. Chalker

From the vaults of the SF Gateway, the most comprehensive digital library of classic SFF titles ever assembled, comes an ideal introduction to one of modern SF and Fantasy’s great storytellers, Jack L. Chalker.


A fan from an early age, Chalker was also active as an editor, founding a small press in his early 20s, but it is as a writer that he is best known. Although his earliest novels were singletons, he soon turned his attention to the sequences that would dominate his career: most notably, The Well of Souls series.

This omnibus collects the first volume of that series, Midnight at the Well of Souls; book one of his Soul Rider series, Spirits of Flux and Anchor; and standalone novel, The Identity Matrix.
