About this title:

Synopsis:

As the ancient Maya city of Pakabtún is about to fall, a high priest commits a murder where a sacrifice is needed. The events he sets into motion are far more sinister than he could have imagined. Lydia Rosenstrom lives in the twenty-first century, a Maya scholar working in the ruins of Pakabtún. She's also helping a U.S. museum create a virtual realty simulation of the ancient city. But when a real person is killed in the simulation, is it an accident, a sacrifice . . . or murder? High technology, shamanic visions, vivid mythology, and deadly danger converge in this fantastic tale based on Maya glyphs, history, and mythology. A tense thriller rich in ideas about civilization and consciousness, The Maya Gateway will leave the reader breathless. A Gateway will open . . . an ancient darkness will arrive.

From the Author: A few years ago, we got interested in the idea of re-creating a place in virtual reality that had long ago disappeared from physical reality. Then we started wondering ... What if the technology got out of hand? What if some rather ordinary people had the curiosity and determination to explore beyond everyday reality? We came up with lots more "what ifs" that we didn't have answers to. But then, we both believe that the heart of the creative experience--and of a good adventure story--is a state of "finding-out." So we started learning about ancient sites that interested us: reading authorities on the Maya, studying how the glyphs were decoded, and visiting the Mexican Yucatan peninsula. We've posted a few of the many photos we took at Mayan sites, captioned with some of the words they inspired us to write.
