'Absolute vintage science-fiction. Hamilton puts British sci-fi back into interstellar overdrive' The Times

In AD 2600 the human race is finally beginning to realize its full potential. Hundreds of colonized planets scattered across the galaxy host a multitude of prosperous and wildly diverse cultures. Genetic engineering has pushed evolution far beyond nature's boundaries, defeating disease and producing extraordinary spaceborn creatures. Huge fleets of sentient trader starships thrive on the wealth created by the industrialization of entire star systems. And throughout inhabited space the Confederation Navy keeps the peace. A true golden age is within our grasp. But now something has gone catastrophically wrong.

On a primitive colony planet a renegade criminal's chance encounter with an utterly alien entity unleashes the most primal of all our fears. An extinct race which inhabited the galaxy aeons ago called it The Reality Dysfunction. It is the nightmare which has prowled beside us since the beginning of history.

    I've found this quite engrossing. It's taken quite a while to get into - like about 400 pages before I really started to get a feel for all the different characters and where they fitted in, but it's a very worthwhile read. Some very original ideas too which is a nice change. If you like Niven, Pourcell etc, I think you'll like this - perhaps a tad more wordy but worth it in the end.

    Awesome book one of the first Hamilton books I have read and I have inhaled everything he was written since. Please get all your books on iTunes ASAP so I can download them all and carry them with me wherever I go.

    A great read that follows in the great tradition of Sci Fi space opera. The author weaves multiple story threads and characters into a fantastic climax that leaves you wanting more! My first novel from iBooks read on my iPad and it won't be my last!
