In A Door To… by James Huber, a drilling operation is suddenly halted when the drilling equipment hits an unusually hard material. Following the alarming incident, Charley Phillips, the head of the drilling team, is left puzzled at what to do. Even his ramrod and expert driller Jack Thompson has never encountered such an incident in his many years of drilling. Charley turns to his niece, geologist Nancy, who, along with a group of other scientists, arrives at the site ready to inspect the material. As Charley and Jack handle the hard work, Charley is tempted to cover up the site and move forward to mitigate the costs and losses he has incurred but too many people are already involved. Then Jack and Nancy stumble into someone they did not expect.

The plot moves between two timelines, one involving another species and the second following the activities of the drilling team. Both are equally interesting. The story also begins with a fascinating scene as an ordinary drilling operation becomes a baffling puzzle that both Jack and Charley, with their years of experience, are unable to solve. Charley’s dilemma in finding out the source for the equipment’s breakage or halting the operation altogether, considering the costs involved, makes him a realistic character. The work also includes suspenseful moments especially at the end when Jack continuously struggles to work and solve the mystery. The plot, however, is brief and some parts of the plot are not expounded enough. Still, James Huber’s A Door To… contains captivating elements that fans of fantasy could appreciate.
