Peter Hamilton signing at Forbidden Planet
From Forbidden Planet's press release, and another date for your diary:
Peter Hamilton will be signing The Evolutionary Void at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2 H 8JR, on Friday 10 September from 6.00pm
Described by the Guardian as ‘the master of widescreen baroque’, Hamilton is one of Britain’s most respected science fiction authors whose work includes the highly successful Pandora’s Star. He has also written the Judas Unchained and the Greg Mandel and Night’s Dawn series.
Completing the epic and massively acclaimed Commonwealth Saga that unfolded in The Dreaming Void and The Temporal Void, Peter Hamilton’s startling perspectives on tomorrow’s technological and cultural trends continues to be both compulsive and wonderfully readable. Spanning huge tracts of space and time, his stories are as epic in scope, and yet they are always grounded in characters – human, alien and other – who touch our hearts and fire our imaginations.
