Lay Beyond contains six short stories, each a conclusion
to one of the previous novels in the series which each suggested
that what existed beyond the Gateways was something momentous.
this really is dull stuff with the exception of the final
story. Moreover, each of the conclusions could just as easily
have been part of the original stories. Think 'marketing ploy',
think 'dull', think 'stay away'...
Gateways never needed seven books to tell this story
and in spreading the narrative so thin the whole endeavour
has become over-stretched. But what really annoys is that
with a little editing the story of the ancient Iconian Gateways
could have been so much better. As it is we're left with what
looks like a cynical ploy to wring yet more cash out of the
already hard-pressed wallets of Trek fans.
