Hi folks, I once read a book many years ago and want to read it again, but I can't remember the tilte or author. It was science fiction and the main male character was named Charlie. He was a gambler and had telekinetic powers which he used to influence how dice rolled. He was caught out in a casino on another planet (it is set in the future) and sentenced to life in prison or death. He said "Non of the above...I choose Purgatory!" Purgatory is the name people have given to somewhere reached by going through a portal.The authorities have sent live animals, inanimate stuff and convicted criminals through it. Some inanimate stuff had been returned but no live stuff.So nobody knows whats in Pugatory. Charlie has adventures in Pugatory etc etc. Does anyone know the book???
