Well Done Peter you have come back from the cold

As an old-time fan of Peter's work I thought this was the best thing I've heard - not just from him but recently.

A great book that isn't just a collection of stories but mainly related stories mostly set in the same universe of The Reality Dysfunction etc. The first story, Watching Trees Grow, is an expansive story that I knew from some years ago and was a pleasure to hear in audio format and then this book just gets better.

Peter has gone back to his roots and produced quality without the excessivly word pros that, in my opinion, have spoiled his last several books. I suspect most of these stories were written before his current epoch and that explains their compactness but nevertheless well done Peter, please keep this up and publish more like this.

The reading is also really well done with the majority of it being read with passion and a great male voice.

For fans of Peter's work please listen to this and then check out his older works such as Escape Route and the full Night's Dawn Trilogy collection.

Mana from Heaven

When Enzyme Bonded Concrete is uttered for the first time, you know you can get the pipe out, fluffy slippers and relax into that world we know and love, and it's it's...Paula. Which to be honest if i could chose anyone out of all the books for her own lil' novel it would be her. Darn it give her her own epic two book yarn Peter, you know you want to.


Great intro in Hamilton's books if you have no read any before, for fans, it's mana from heaven
