Review by Steven Robert Allen
Peter F. Hamilton
Fans of serious science fiction have been raving about Hamilton's new novel. Set in the 24th century, Pandora's Star describes an attack on human civilization by a very peculiar alien intelligence. The epic will conclude with next year's Judas Unleashed.
Devout Christian Vincent Saunders leaves his home in Illinois to do missionary work in Taiwan, coming into contact with a small circus of odd characters. Dalton's debut novel has been favorably compared to fiction by Graham Greene and Norman Rush.
A prepubescent girl is kidnapped by a creepy, impotent former state trooper and must use her wits to survive in captivity. Harington's novel has received a lot of attention for its inventive narrative and surprising blasts of humor.
