Peter F. Hamilton was born in the county of Rutland, UK, where he lived for fifty years before moving to Somerset with his family and a pair of very badly behaved Burmese cats. He sold his first professional story to Fear magazine in 1987, and subsequently began work on his first novel Mindstar Rising, the start of the futuristic Greg Mandel detective series. Since then his books have primarily been Space Operas, including The Night’s Dawn trilogy, the Commonwealth Saga, the Void trilogy, as well as several stand-alone books and short story collections. In 2015 he published The Secret Throne, the first of The Queen Of Dreams, a children’s fantasy trilogy, which featured his own children in lead roles, which was an attempted bribe to get them to read more. He is currently writing another science fiction trilogy called Salvation, the second of which, Salvation Lost, will be published in September / October 2019.

The event is free to attend and there will be a Q&A after the readings where the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions to the authors.

Books on the Hill will be selling books as always, as well as some splendid teas.

All welcome.
