Published Jul 2016

In the earliest years of the history of the universe, the Worldmaker has turned against his creations with unaccountable malice. One by one the ruling sun lords of each solar system have fallen, succumbing to the lure of forbidden knowledge. The terrible punishment for their crime is isolation—the Gates connecting their worlds to the rest of the cosmos are sealed off. Their innocence lost, their civilizations hopelessly corrupted, the immortal sun people are condemned to languish with their subjects in an eternity of solitude. With courageous and often desperate measures the remaining sun lords now prepare themselves and their subjects for a battle unlike any they have ever imagined. The final struggle has begun. Unfolding with epic power, Stargate is conceived with a richness, subtlety, and depth that set it apart from most fantasy fiction. And like Pauline Gedge's critically acclaimed historical novels, it is written with a vividness that is unforgettable. First published in 1982 but long out of print, Stargate is destined to be rediscovered and treasured as a major classic of fantasy literature.

Rediscovered Classics

Beginning with our republication of Kathleen Winsor's Forever Amber in 2000, Chicago Review Press has been bringing out novels that are no longer available in paperback, complete with new covers and the occasional new foreword for today's market. We focus on reviving books with a preexisting fanbase—a dedicated group of readers who strongly believe that this is one of the best books they've ever read or that the author is a standout in her or his particular genre—and we strive to publish titles that readers will want to revisit again and again.

If you know of a classic novel you think should be rediscovered, send us an email and we will check it out.
