Gateways to Abomination Paperback – July 26, 2014
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

There is a mad genius at work here...this collection of nightmares and disturbing radio broadcasts blends together so well that the book transcends the concept of a simple short fiction collection and becomes so much more. Highly recommended, there is something special at work here. - The Arkham Digest
Every bit of this is scary. It's the kind that gets under your skin and leaves you thinking about it when you should be going to sleep. It's the kind that gives you nightmares. - playwithdeath.com
Gateways to Abomination is a panoramic view of terror, of the approaching darkness, of evil in a small community that gradually infects and corrupts everything it touches. Bartlett's voice is strong, his scenes unnerving...a happy discovery in the side alleys of independent horror.- Muzzleland Press

GATEWAYS TO ABOMINATION doesn't explain much. Instead, we are given flashes of things that happen, in prose that is well done without being indulgent. Where Lovecraft will go on and on describing about how we should find something disturbing, Mr. Bartlett knows that describing worms as writhing limbless pigs is all that's needed.
The book is mysterious, intriguing, and just flat out fun. It's not a huge commitment, either. It's not like you're being asked to commit to 1000+ pages of dense writing that requires hard work and research in order to suss out what's happening. Everything you need to know is there in 145 pages of plain English, and the things you don't need to know are what make it horror.
If you'd ask "what's the point?" after reading a book featuring an evil radio station run by a witch cult, I wonder why you would have bothered in the first place. If you take exception to the fact that it's not explicitly stated why the evil occultists are doing evil occult things, I wonder where your imagination is. But, if you'd like to be unsettled and bewildered, this is the book for you.
