This section of the website concentrates on the Confederation Universe developed by Peter for his Nights Dawn Trilogy,The Reality Dysfunction (1996), The Neutronium Alchemist (1998) and The Naked God (2000). There is also a compilation of short stories, set before The Reality Dysfunction but in the same Confederation Universe, that provide some history to the trilogy, starting from the first Edenist habitat leading up to a story about the Lady Macbeth and Joshua's father. The compilation is titled A Second Chance At Eden.

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 latest 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 specifically for this website.

Read some information on The Naked God's publication and a sample of the book.

You can see some fan-art and some cover art by Jim Burns in the gallery.
