Synopsis : In 1993 we published Mindstar Rising, the first novel by Britain's number one science fiction writer, Peter F. Hamilton. This special edition also includes a short story, Family Matters, which is set in the same world as Mindstar Rising. It's the 21st century and global warming is here to stay, so forget the way your country used to look. And get used to the free market, too - the companies possess all the best hardware, and they're calling the shots now. In a world like this, a man open to any offers can make out just fine. A man like Greg Mandel for instance, who's psi-boosted, wired into the latest sensory equipment, carrying state-of-the-art weaponry - and late of the English Army's Mindstar Battalion. As the cartels battle for control of a revolutionary new power source, and corporate greed outstrips national security, tension is mounting to boiling point - and Greg Mandel is about to face the ultimate test.
A propos de l'auteur: 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 In Dreams and New Worlds anthologies, and 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. Also published by Pan Macmillan are 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. His most recent novels are Fallen Dragon, Misspent Youth, Pandora's Star, Judas Unchained and Great North Road, and the Void trilogy: The Dreaming Void, The Temporal Void and The Evolutionary Void.
