About the Author:

From the publication in 1977 of Child of the Morning, her prize-winning first novel, Pauline Gedge’s novels have found millions of readers.

Review:

“Gedge has fashioned a remarkable blend of gripping entertainment and haunting ideas that linger long after the book has been put down.” —Globe and Mail
"Pauline Gedge tells a story that will pull at the heart strings." —Book Him Danno

Stargate, which goes back to the theological beginnings of the world, is ambitious and serious fantasy, a vivid portrait of rich civilizations and their fall from the heavenly kingdom.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch

“It is no easy feat to write a creation story, even one which is set in an alien universe, [but] novelist Gedge takes up these challenges in this, her third book – and . . . pulls off a clear winner.” —Edmonton Journal


“Gedge is a skilled stylist and her prose is luminous and poetic. . . . Those with a taste for poetry and spiritual speculation may well be pleased with this theological thriller.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“As a describer of a fantasy world, Gedge must have few peers. Her word pictures of her strange planets enable us to visualize them easily and to believe in their existence.” —Victoria Times Colonist

“A stunning trip through time and space. Stargate is like a powerful dose of a mood-altering drug; it’s a trip that reaches not only the heights of the unknown but of the unimaginable as well. A grand read.”  —The Magazine

“The climactic battle, the tension, the suspense, is alone worth the price. On the surface, Stargate is a ripping good book. Underneath, and oh-so-subtly, are drawn the analogies of real life. . . . [Gedge] has done all this with imagination and creativity and originality.” —The Calgary Herald


"Stargate offers a subtle, rich, and fanstastically vivid look into a world filled with characters who play to and transcend our own human flaws." —OMNI

“The universe she creates is described with unparalleled vividness and imagination.The subtlety and depth of Stargate entrenches Pauline Gedge yet more firmly as a Canadian author of international stature.” —Winnipeg Free Press

“In addition to being provocative, Stargate is an enjoyable novel. Its premise is enthralling and the characters, in enacting that premise, express in an insightful way something significant about human nature.” —Vancouver Sun
