A Second Chance at Eden
Peter F. Hamilton
Sonnie's Edge appears within this collection, featured as part of the Love, Death & Robots series on Netflix.
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.
This is a must-have collection from a writer at the top of his game.
A fun read
An excellent collection of short SF set in one of the most thoroughly-realized SF settings ever created
The shining star for me is the novella A Second Chance at Eden as it runs at just the right pace and is the perfect length to keep you trapped and awake at night as you race towards the end to find out who did it and why
