Gateway opened on all the wealth of the Universe...and on reaches of unimaginable horror. When prospector Bob Broadhead went out to Gateway on the Heechee spacecraft, he decided he would know which was the right mission to make him his fortune. Three missions later, now famous and permanently rich, Robinette Broadhead has to face what happened to him and what he is...in a journey into himself as perilous and even more horrifying than the nightmare trip through the interstellar void that he drove himself to take!

Yeah, this one was good. Not sure about if it's space-opera, but it was good. Much better than the short-story "Merchants of Venus".

The hero has a duel with a computer psychiatrist adding to the enjoyment of the read.

Could be called down and out in a space station.

I'm not sure how this won so many awards, it about a druggy alcoholic guy who spends most of the book in Psychotherapy and whining about his life. At one point he beats up one of his girlfriends for cheating on him even though he is sleeping with multiple women. It's only Sci-Fi because it take place in the future. I don't know anyone that would enjoy this rubbish.

Pohl's masterpiece. Several years work, and that shows.
