Sonnie's Edge appears within this collection, featured as part of the Love, Death & Robots series on Netflix.
This is a brilliant collection of six short stories and a novella, set in the same universe as Peter F. Hamilton's Night's Dawn trilogy. The author presents us with a compelling mix of human dilemmas, imagined technologies and extraordinary new cultures.
Among others, this collection includes Sonnie's Edge - featuring contests to the death between constructed monsters. But one has a special advantage . . . We also visit an abandoned alien spacecraft in Escape Route. However, is it really as empty as it seems? And in the title novella, A Second Chance at Eden, a habitat creator is murdered. But nobody can identify the perpetrator - or the motive.
This is a must-have collection from a writer at the top of his game.
