A science fiction novella.
Codrin has money, even status. A professor, no less. Not bad considering he’s only a Shreb. Until one day he loses it all, and has no choice but to gamble his family’s fate on a one-way ticket across the Gate to a new life on another world.
Except something is wrong with the Gate…
