512 pages


Six short stories and a novella from a master of science fiction, Peter F. Hamilton. This collection includes Sonnie's Edge, as seen in the award-winning Netflix anthology series Love, Death & Robots.

Set in the same universe as the Night’s Dawn trilogy, Peter F. Hamilton presents a compelling mix of human dilemmas, imagined technologies and extraordinary new cultures.

Among others, this collection includes Sonnie’s Edge, a story of contests to the death between constructed monsters. But one has a special advantage . . .

We also visit an abandoned alien spacecraft in Escape Route. Abandoned, but is it really as empty as it seems?

In the title novella, A Second Chance at Eden, the co-creator of a genetically-engineered habitat is found murdered. But nobody can identify the perpetrator – or the motive.

Featuring a diverse selection of stories set far in the future and beyond the stars, A Second Chance at Eden is a must-have collection from a writer at the top of his game.

An excellent collection of short SF set in one of the most thoroughly-realized SF settings ever created
A fun read
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
