    When prospector Bob Broadhead went out to Gateway on the Heechee spacecraft, he decided he would know which was the right mission to make him his fortune. Three missions later, now famous and permanently rich, Robinette Broadhead has to face what happened to him and what he is...in a journey into himself as perilous and even more horrifying than the nightmare trip through the interstellar void that he drove himself to take!

    Ryan says: "A human-focused SF classic"
    "One of the Finest SF; superlative narration!"
    Overall

    This title was recommended to us as a Hugo & Nebula Award winner in the Audible intro to A.C. Clarke's "Rendezvous with Rama". Compelling, annoying, fascinating, and loaded with heartache and that "being there" sensation (verisimilitude), this was our best science fiction listen to date. We could hardly wait until our next listening session to see what would happen next, and how it would happen. Even though the protagonist is a bit of a jerk we have total empathy with him.

    We only wish the remaining three books of Pohl's "Heechee" series were available on audio!!!
