Yet again, I am reminded that I am not a true science fiction fan despite decades of reading science fiction, and all because my reading tastes don't mesh with those of some gatekeeper. At least the gatekeepers are biased in favor of female authors now.
Meanwhile, every true gatekeeper knows that the absolute best gates are:
1. The Golden Gate Bridge
2. Bill Gates
4. Gifted And Talented Education
5. Lionsgate Films
6. Brandenberg Gate
7. Heaven’s Gate (the film, not the suicide cult)
8. Number 8 will shock you!
9.10. Gateau au chocolat
Piper at the Gates of Dawn Devil Gate Drive
EDIT: Actually I'm going to replace Pink Floyd with Suzi Quatro (because I've listened to it more times).
