This is a blockbuster week for new science fiction novels here at Unbound Worlds. It’s not often that you get a new Star Wars book from Timothy Zahn and a new novel from Peter F. Hamilton on the same day, but hey, it’s 2013, and “awesome” is just how this year’s gonna roll.
I met Hamilton at San Diego Comic Con, and I’m proud to say that I didn’t embarrass myself – I think. The guy’s a legend, and a very, very busy one at that. I didn’t want to stumble and stammer too much, and I was a little nervous. Fortunately, I found him to be an incredibly kind; a gentleman in every sense of the word. I could waste time here trying to describe what The Great North Road is about to you, but why would I do that when the author himself can? This video only got a few views when it was first released, so I’m practically sure that there are many of you that haven’t seen it. Without further ado, Here’s Mr. Hamilton on The Great North Road.
