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.

"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"

About the Author


Peter F. Hamilton was born in Rutland in 1960 and still lives near Rutland Water. He began writing in 1987 and sold his first short story to Fear magazine in 1988. He has also been published in Interzone and the anthologies In Dreams and New Worlds, as well as in several small-press publications. His novels include the Greg Mandel series---Mindstar Rising, A Quantum Murder, and The Nano Flower---and the bestselling Night's Dawn Trilogy, The Reality Dysfunction, The Neutronium Alchemist, and The Naked God.

He is also the author of A Second Chance at Eden, a novella and six short stories set in the same brilliantly realized universe, and The Confederation Handbook, a vital guide to the Night's Dawn Trilogy. Among his most recent novels are Fallen Dragon and Misspent Youth. British narrator John Lee has read audiobooks in almost every conceivable genre, from Charles Dickens to Patrick O'Brian, and from the very real life of Napoleon to the entirely imagined lives of sorcerers and swashbucklers.

He has won numerous Audie Awards and AudioFile Earphones Awards, and he was named a Golden Voice by AudioFile in 2009. Lee is also an accomplished stage actor and wrote and coproduced the feature films Breathing Hard and Forfeit.
