Harrow’s Gate - The Flavor is Delicious!


The novel Harrow’s Gate is a wonderful science fiction action adventure story that takes place on another world. The characters are incredibly relatable and the plot is filled with longing, angst, love and a sense of the human condition. The author, Lawrence BoarerPitchford, has provided an excerpt from his book Harrow’s Gate, Chapter 3:



Ella moved quickly and kicked Heinz in the leg. The man fell to the side, and Ella shouted, “This way!”

The three girls ran toward a dark alley across the street. The hired goons were on their heels every step of the way. Ella dashed down the road between the high brick buildings only to find it blocked at the end with a wall and a wooden door. She turned and produced a small dagger. Swinging it from side to side, she nearly cut one of the ruffians.

“Now, me lovely, you don’t want to go and do that do you?” said the lead tough.

“I’ll gut the first of you that tries to lay a hand on us!” Ella shouted.

The two Burkmuran men arrived. Heinz pushed his way forward. The green moon was full, and in the dim light of the alley he shook his head.

“You’re a pistol, my little sweet-pie,” he said.

“No, actually I have a pistol, and I’ll kill each of you if you don’t step aside,” Leland said loudly from behind.

“What’s this?” Heinz turned around. “Who in the Height’s Hell are you?”

“None of your business! Now step aside or you’ll be the first to fall,” Leland assured him.

“Ella, Crystal, Genya, come this way,” Tommy said, his saber in his hand and ready for action.

Ella moved forward waving her dagger from side to side to make sure the men stayed out of the way. Once through, the girls ran out to the street.


The author stated, “This book is filled with vivid details that bring the action into movie-like focus for the reader.
