Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

This is Hamilton's first collection of short stories (including one novella), set in the same universe as the bestselling Night's Dawn trilogy. Actually, as Hamilton himself admits, the original versions of these stories had nothing to do with Night's Dawn, but he has used the opportunity of this collection to tweak (or almost completely rewrite) all his earlier works and bring them in line. This process seems to affect most sci-fi novelists at some point in their careers and is probably a cathartic milestone in the transition from new SF author to bestselling author.

The collection is chronological in sequence, starting with the early days when affinity is a cutting edge technology and taking the reader through it's rapid development as it forms a fundamental part of civilisation. For die-hard enthusiasts of Night's Dawn, "Escape Route" tells the intriguing story of the last flight of Joshua Calvert's father and his spacecraft, Lady Macbeth. And the novella "A Second Chance at Eden" is Hamilton's attempt at revenge; apparently when he wrote his second novel A Quantum Murder, too many of his friends solved the mystery and identified the murderer--this time he throws down the gauntlet to stunning effect. For fans or novices, this collection offers a diverse selection, all under-pinned by Hamilton's attention to detail and skill in storytelling. --Dave Mutton

After finishing Hamilton's Reality Dysfunction and Neutronium Alchemist I fell into a deep hole when I realized that it would still be some time before the final part (The Naked God) was published. "A Second Chance at Eden" gives at least some reprieve. In the course of seven short stories, Peter Hamilton spans the time between 2090 and 2586, giving fans of his Night's Dawn trilogy excellent background infos. For those not familiar with Hamilton's epic work of science fiction, these short stories are still excellent examples of sci-fi... most likely you will be hooked on Hamilton soon enough. One of the stories, "Sonnie's Edge" gives some interesting aspects of early affinity bonds, where affinity-bonded human-beast creations fight it out in underground battle arenas and the border between human and beast becomes ever harder to define. In the short story that gives this collection its title, "A Second Chance at Eden", Hamilton explores the possiblity of murder in the "perfect" society, a sentinent Edenist habitat. Even here, where every aspect of human life is viewed and controlled by a sentinent entity, crime and murder should be unthinkable... but they are not. Every single story is complete in itself and every story is different... and for all those waiting for the final sequel in the Night's Dawn trilogy, there's even a Joshua Calvert episode. To summarize: no techno-overkill, but sensible and interesting story telling. (Dies ist eine Amazon.de an der Uni-Studentenrezension.)

After reading Hamilton's Night's Dawn Trilogy (The Reality Dysfunction, The Neutronium Alchemist and The Naked God) I found myself WANTING to learn more about the universe that he had so wonderfully created.
I found this little book full of short stories set in the same universe as that series and was totally impressed. There are hints to the stories in A 2nd Chance at Eden in The Naked God (When Calvert tells Ione that his dad had once traveled through time and she didn't believe him, for example.)
There is also a VERY valuable and fascinating story of Edenism which paints its esteemed leader in a much different light than most would think after reading the entire Night's Dawn series.
So, check it out, and enjoy!

Wer jemals Hamilton Bücher gelesen hat, wird von diesen Geschichten nicht enttäuscht werden. Einige Charaktere aus anderen Bücher findet man wieder, und auch einige Infos rund um die Entwicklung der "Hamilton Welt" gibt es.

Having never read Peter Hamilton and being leery of picking up the first book of a long series that might disappoint I bought a "Second Chance at Eden". This is a magnificent collection. The first story starts the collection off with a bang with its clever surprise ending. The novella "A Second Chance at Eden" is worth the price of entry by itself. This fine gem is a rare science fiction mystery story that works. You'll not only be stunned by how the crime was done but also why. It is the best novella I have read in a while. The novella "Escape Route" is an engrossing action adventure that in any other story collection would be considered its high point. There is no weak story in this collection. On the strength of this collection I have bought all of Peter Hamilton's other books. I am looking forward to reading them. Do yourself a favor and buy "A Second Chance at Eden".

Peter Hamilton reads like a hardcore version of Orson Scott Card -- his stories are extraordinarily well thought-through, are presented with a pleasing clarity, and never let his admittedly fascinating scientific creations to interfere with their human focus. I wouldn't have thought it possible, but Hamilton has managed to add interesting and not-at-all superfluous detail to his "Night's Dawn" universe, which is already the most fully-realized and richly detailed fictional world I've come across since Tolkien. Although some of the stories in this collection rely on surprise twists for their effectiveness, and thus will probably not support repeated readings, they nevertheless adequately reward the first reading. All-in-all, an immensely satisfying and highly accessible collection that has made me add Peter F. Hamilton's name to my list of favorite authors.

This compilation of stories, cleared out the many questions I had about the technologies he uses in the NightDawn trilogy, making it more viable and intrigueing. The plots of the stories were quite funny, often up to the horrific, however not always as consequent as the ones used in the NightDawn trilogy. I sure hope he'll supply us furthermore with this superb quality SF, ritch in ideas, character descriptions and tales of strange worlds, thus becoming one of the writers I hold dearly on top of the bookshelves. I also hope his editor won't rush him into publishing too soon the third part of the Night Dawn trilogy I was expecting to see first. The appearance of this book might be a good sign.

I don't usually buy a collection of short stories. Many authors just have one really good story which sells a group of loss leaders. However, I was very much surprised at the uniform quality of all the stories in Hamilton's collection. I especially liked the "Lives and Loves of Tuala..." story whose conclusion's ethics we will probably have to deal with in our world as cloning becomes mainstream. On the basis of this one volume alone, the author shows himself to be a writer of first rank scifi. I have also read his Night's Dawn series and almost like this preamble to that series even better. A collection of jewels.
