Peter F Hamilton signing Manhattan in Reverse
Peter F Hamilton will be signing his short story collection Manhattan in Reverse at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Thursday 6th October 6 – 7pm.
In 1998, Peter F Hamilton, the master of space opera and top-ten bestselling author, published his first collection of short stories in A Second Chance At Eden. Thirteen years later he returns with a new collection, including ‘Manhattan in Reverse’ - an original and exclusive story featuring detective Paula Myo from his Commonwealth series.
From ‘Watching Trees Grow’, a murder mystery set in an alternative Oxford in the 1800s, to ‘The Forever Kitten’, the questions of eternal youth and the sacrifices required to pursue this, these stories deal with intricate themes and sociological issues, and take an intriguing look at what makes us enduringly human.
With all his usual imagination for futuristic technology, complexity of character and brilliantly conceived storytelling, Peter F. Hamilton shows through this collection of work what it is that makes him Britain’s number one science fiction writer.
Peter F. Hamilton was born in Rutland in 1960, and still lives near Rutland Water with his family. He began writing in 1987 and sold his first short story to Fear magazine in 1988. His previous novels comprise the Greg Mandel series and the Night’s Dawn trilogy. His most recent novels are Fallen Dragon, Misspent Youth, Pandora’s Star, Judas Unchained and the Void trilogy.
