A QUANTUM MURDER by Peter F. Hamilton
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Nov. 17, 1997

"The intriguing backdrop and solid characters enliven what is otherwise an overlong, overstuffed, and not particularly believable investigation."

BOOK REVIEW

THE DREAMING VOID by Peter F. Hamilton
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: April 1, 2008

"Dozens of scenarios, a surprisingly well-delineated cast of thousands, plotting enough to delight the most Machiavellian of readers and, this time out, a far leaner and more purposeful product: a real spellbinder from a master storyteller."
The thread of Hamilton's latest doorstopper space opera picks up a thousand years after the events of Judas Unchained (2006). Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

THE NAKED GOD by Peter F. Hamilton
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: Jan. 3, 2000

"Instead, if you were impressed by Greg Mandel's trilogy (triumphantly concluded with The Nano Flower, 1998), try part one of The Reality Dysfunction and ease your way in."
This final part of Hamilton's doorstopper trilogy set in a.d. 2600—following The Reality Dysfunction (mass market, published in two parts) and The Neutronium Alchemist (ditto), not to mention a recent compilation of related stories, A Second Chance at Eden'switches to hardcover, presumably on the theory that readers who've patiently accumulated all those paperbacks won't want to wait ages for the paperback market editions.

SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: March 11, 2002

"A fascinating, compulsively readable clash of hardware and ideals."

BOOK REVIEW

Released: June 1, 1982

"Still: these are elegant people elegantly pondering diplomacy, etiquette, finance, adultery, anti-Semitism, history, old age, and the approaching Great War—and readers partial to a sedate, old-world sensibility will be richly rewarded."
Stately, low-key fiction from the well-known management guru: loosely connected vignettes (Drucker compares them to the movements of a quartet) from the lives of four distinguished Europeans who reach their later years around the turn-of-the-century. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

THE NANO FLOWER by Peter F. Hamilton
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: Feb. 1, 1998

"Gratifyingly complex and challenging—indeed, impossible to summarize adequately, what with battles, love stories, vendettas, imponderable aliens, and robust characters: a fine trilogy, sure, but this one's in a class by itself."
Third in Hamilton's trilogy (Mindstar Rising, 1996; A Quantum Murder, p. 1421) featuring Greg Mandel, of the psi- powered Mindstar Battalion. Read full book review >
