By Peter F Hamilton

Buy from Amazon This is a brilliant collection of six short stories and a novella, set in the same universe as Peter F. Hamilton’s Night’s Dawn trilogy. The author presents us with a compelling mix of human dilemmas, imagined technologies and extraordinary new cultures. Among others, this collection includes Sonnie’s Edge – featuring contests to the death between constructed monsters. But one has a special advantage . . . We also visit an abandoned alien spacecraft in Escape Route. However, is it really as empty as it seems? And in the title novella, A Second Chance at Eden, a habitat creator is murdered. But nobody can identify the perpetrator – or the motive.
