Welcome to the official homepage of Peter F. Hamilton. On this site, you will find information about Peter, his work, information on current events (below), and a weblog, where Peter keeps us informed about stuff. There are also sections containing answers to questions asked by fans, artwork (Both cover-art and fan-art) and a list of special content, including previews from Peter's books and background material. Also, do not hesitate to use the question form to ask Peter a question, or the guest book if you simply want to leave him a message.
With a little bit of luck, I will be doing a Reddit AMA tomorrow at 12pm EST and 5pm UK time. Will post the link when live!

So last date of the tour is this Wednesday at the UCL, it's at 3.00pm in the Harrie Massey Lecture theatre if you'd like to go. I'm there to talk about futurology. Er... yes. But there will be a Q&A afterwards, so the physics department can have their usual cruel fun at my expense. No I don't know exactly how ftl works, okay!

Tonight I downloaded Pink Floyd's The Endless River. Tomorrow I will play it (while writing) and be in 70's teenager heaven. Haven't been there for a while.

Right, I want to know who's the fiend that invented Monopoly Empire? And why did they rig it so that 8 year olds win every time? I've been playing Felix all weekend, and refuse to publicly divulge the final score.

Tonight I'm being interviewed by Ken MacLeod at 6pm, Waterstones 128 Princes Street Edinburgh I'll be signing afterwards, so as always if you have a shelf-load of my books you want signing, please bring them along. Then tomorrow, 12.30, I'll be signing at Waterstones 153 Sauchiehall Street Glasgow. Hopefully see some of you there.

Wot, me? Yes you! So far today, jumped onto a high shelf in the kitchen knocking off and smashing a glass candle holder, and most precious ceramic eggcup in the world -painted by Felix age 4. Then this afternoon right outside my writing shed window had a huge fight with the ginger cat from down the road -fur everywhere. Then... while I was picking kids up from school knocked the cover off the red velvet cake (baked by Sophie, all by herself -so proud) and ate/licked bits of it. Does Ebay do cats?

Oh dear. 14 / 15. Not good for a) a Science Fiction writer. And b) how it shows my age.
MCM at the London Excel. Wow, just amazing. Thanks to everyone who came for the Q&A and the signing, I hope you had as much fun as I did afterwards. If you never go to any other type of convention, go to this one next year.

Some people (such as "Dave" in the guestbook) noticed that Pandora's star was pulled from Audible, and wondered why this happened. It turns out that there have been some complaints about the sound quality of that recording. For that reason, the book was temporarily removed from the Audible store until the engineers have fixed this.
