@owasco wrote something that reminded me of portals, other dimensions, Narnia, and a 2013 novel, Adjacent Fields by Charles Barouch. That's why I'm resurrecting this old book review. If a book is a classic, though, how can a review be "too old" - unless the science has come to life in the years since a futuristic sci-fi novel was first published - dare I go see?
At the time I reviewed this for Perihelion Science Fiction,
real-life scientists claimed they had teleported a small object -- You can imagine it: "A thumb tack today, tomorrow, the world" (or a human: Beam me up, Scotty!). I have searched online for these science projects in which teleportation occurred.
"If you can imagine it, it could happen--and likely will" (or already did).

Ok, back to the book review.
Charles Barouch hurls the reader headlong into the fire of ethereal physics with his novel “Adjacent Fields,” and if the science doesn’t scare us, the politics will. How does the inventor of a teleportation device get the funding to produce and market such a revolutionary product? What if customers can’t use the teleporter until their governments figure out how to regulate and tax the device?
