MCM LONDON COMIC CON – EXCEL LONDON – 24-26 OCTOBER
Dream guest; top sci-fi writer Peter F. Hamilton brings new novel to MCM London Comic Con
Super news for sci-fi fans; best-selling British author Peter F. Hamilton will be at this month’s MCM London Comic Con to promote his latest novel, The Abyss Beyond Dreams.
Attending the Sunday of the Excel London show, Hamilton (Greg Mandel Series, Night’s Dawn Trilogy) will be hosting an on-stage panel and singing autographs for fans. Visitors will also be able to purchase copies of the recently published The Abyss Beyond Dreams, which is the first of a new two-book saga set in his hugely popular Commonwealth universe.
Distinguished by deft plotting, a teeming cast of characters, dazzling scientific speculation, and imagination that brings the truly alien to life, The Abyss Beyond Dreams reveals Hamilton as a storyteller of astonishing ingenuity and power.
The year is 3326. Nigel Sheldon, one of the founders of the Commonwealth, receives a visit from the Raiel – self-appointed guardians of the Void, the enigmatic construct at the core of the galaxy that threatens the existence of all that lives. The Raiel convince Nigel to participate in a desperate scheme to infiltrate the Void.
Once inside, Nigel discovers that humans are not the only life-forms to have been sucked into the Void, where the laws of physics are subtly different and mental powers indistinguishable from magic are commonplace. The humans trapped there are afflicted by an alien species of biological mimics – the Fallers – that are intelligent but merciless killers.
Yet these same aliens may hold the key to destroying the threat of the Void forever – if Nigel can uncover their secrets. As the Fallers’ relentless attacks continue, and the fragile human society splinters into civil war, Nigel must uncover the secrets of the Fallers – before he is killed by the very people he has come to save.
