Cross the Gate is a gen zine of fiction. The stories cross Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis with other fandoms. The zine format was a perfect-bound paperback but is now only available as an ezine (your choice of PDF, MOBI, or EPUB formats).

Publisher's blurb: "From the people who brought you the Jumper zine series comes a brand new Stargate crossover zine: "Cross the Gate." Basically, we invited our authors to cross any fandom with Stargate SG-1 and/or Stargate: Atlantis, and I must say I am very proud with the end result. Cross the Gate will be premiering Memorial Day weekend 2013 at the MediaWest Convention in Lansing, Michigan. We had so much fun this year, and have a great big zine full of great stories."
