The Confederation Universe was developed by Peter for his Nights Dawn Trilogy, consisting of The Reality Dysfunction (1996), The Neutronium Alchemist (1998) and The Naked God (2000). There is also a compilation of short stories called A Second Chance at Eden, set before The Reality Dysfunction but in the same Confederation Universe. The stories provide some history to the trilogy, starting with the origins of the Edenist culture and leading up to a story about the Lady Macbeth and Joshua's father.
Because of the delay in the release of the US version of The Naked God, many people have been tempted to by the book from the UK or another country. In doing so they will miss a very small segment of text dealing with the fate of Dariat when Valisk is removed from the universe at the end of that plotline in The Neutronium Alchemist. So those people do not miss out, they can now read the missing text here.
The final book related to the Confederation Universe is a compilation of Peter's notes, entitled The Confederation Handbook (2000). There are two exclusive excerpts you can read now, the Final Cast List from the Nights Dawn Trilogy and the background information on the Kingdom of Kulu.
Peter has written an essay about his writing of The Nights Dawn Trilogy.
We also have a sample of The Naked God available.
