We're used to books by Peter F Hamilton being big enough to use in hand-to-hand combat, this new release, a collection of shorter fiction pieces is no less significant for it's shorter extent.
Though he's hardly prolific in this area (this is only his second collection ever, and his first in thirteen years) Hamilton has nonetheless written some excellent short fiction. As well as containing Watching Trees Grow and Footvote , both originally released by PS Publishing (one as a stand-alone novella and the other as the lead story in the inaugural edition of Postscripts) this Macmillan hardcover contains a brand new story from which it takes its name, Manhattan in Reverse.
"A collection of short stories from the master of space opera. Peter F Hamilton takes us on a journey from a murder mystery in an alternative Oxford in the 1800s to a brand new story featuring Paula Mayo, Deputy Director of the Intersolar Commonwealth’s Serious Crimes Directorate. Dealing with intricate themes and topical subject this top ten bestselling author is at the top of his game. "
