In this collection, Peter F. Hamilton draws you into an array of captivating tales. These exciting glimpses into his worlds are not to be missed – and as Ken Follett says, ‘each short story has enough ideas for a whole novel’.

Manhattan in Reverse features the author’s popular detective Paula Myo, from his bestselling Commonwealth books. Other stories include Watching Trees Grow – a murder mystery set in an alternative 1800s Oxford – and The Forever Kitten. This questions eternal youth and the sacrifices required to pursue it. With all his usual brilliantly conceived storytelling, Peter F. Hamilton’s talents are on full display.

Industry Reviews

"[H]ere the typical widescreen baroque of those larger epic narratives have been replaced by something a little more focused and intimate, but these are still engaging and fun"
SFFWorld

"If you are a fan you will absolutely love this collection, but newcomers will find this an excellent introduction to his work without having to commit to a full-length novel. Highly recommended"
WordsinInk

"If you're looking for a collection of truly well-written and engaging short science fiction stories, then Manhattan in Reverse is a great read"
SciFiNow

"The collection's highpoint is the excelled novella "Watching Tress Grow", set in an alternate reality in which Rome never fell and most citizens are immortal"

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.
