The Gates of Sunset
by Adrian Rogers
What have 'The Three Fates', spinning destinies in a lifeless world between worlds got to do with a reckless eighteen-year-old driving his first car, or his studious girlfriend?

It is the story of two young South Australians stepping out of their own small realities, being matured in the process, coming to know themselves better, and finding new purpose in their lives. Guided by the mysterious 'Archer', whose name they never learn, and a host of lesser characters they learn to accept the unimaginable and triumph, but at a cost...

"The novel's style reminded me of Michael Moorcock's, and coming from me that is a definite compliment! In fact all the elements were perfect, just what I wanted to see, it was almost as if Adrian had read my mind and written the novel I would have loved to but never had the time to! I really enjoyed reading it and am happy to give it a definite thumbs-up. I, for one, would certainly go out and buy a copy! A story that deserves to become a classic of fantasy. A good read."
