Kindle Spotlight: The Reality Dysfunction (and Others in the Night’s Dawn Trilogy)

The Reality Dysfunction by Peter F. Hamilton

Buy: 7.99

Space opera on the grand scale; the first volume of The Night’s Dawn trilogy, an SF classic, brought back into print (last in print: Aspect 1997). And by grand, we mean Big. You’re going to need that Wikipedia page and all of its family. Every book in this trilogy comes in two volumes, but whether a particular edition is just one or both volumes is sometimes unclear.

Here are the other Kindle editions of the various volumes of books from the Night’s Dawn trilogy, apart from The Reality Dysfunction from Orbit Books. (You may want to wait until the end of this article before deciding to click on things, because there are more goodies.)

The Neutronium Alchemist by Peter F. Hamilton

Buy: 3.99

The second book in the Night’s Dawn trilogy, volume 1.

The Neutronium Alchemist by Peter F. Hamilton

Volume 2 of the second book in the Night’s Dawn trilogy.

Naked God, The: Flight – Part 1 by Peter F. Hamilton

Buy: 7.96

The third book in the Night’s Dawn trilogy, volume 1.

You’ll note that there’s a lack of The Naked God volume 2 and The Reality Dysfunction volume 2. However, you can get everything (all volumes of the trilogy) in one big gulp:

The Night’s Dawn Trilogy by Peter F. Hamilton

Buy: 7.96

Everything for under $8.

This file is big: 5 MB. That’s a lot of text, but it’s about the right size; each volume is something a little under 1 MB in text with some sort of JPG cover added. I assume the cover for this book is very much simplified to reduce file size.

If you find yourself fond of Night’s Dawn, or you just want to have a few tastes before sitting down at the main course above, there’s:

A Second Chance at Eden by Peter F. Hamilton

Buy: 5.59

Various short stories; the contents are summarized at Wikipedia.

For those who would like an additional guide from the author himself on the series, there’s:

The Confederation Handbook by Peter F. Hamilton

Buy: 5.59

The guide to the Night’s Dawn trilogy, written by Hamilton himself.

If you like Really Big Science Fiction or Fantasy, the kind that spreads across multiple books, the Kindle’s quite nice for obvious reasons, plus you can search (if you dare) all the books in one go.

  1. Hey Teena, thanks!

    Hi David, I haven’t read them, thus a spotlight instead of a kindle-licious. :) Lots of people 5-star this series at Amazon, and while negative reviews are usually unreliable, coherent positive reviews past #3 tend to be reliable. (Except in the case of a certain romance author, but she’s nowhere near SF, so yay.)

    (I usually say “past #3” because it’s the case that the truly hardcore fans or, worse case, author’s friend hits positive reviews #1, #2, and occasionally #3. Similarly for hardcore haters/worst-case-author’s-enemy for negative reviews. Very, very few authors ask for reviews to be rescinded, even if they’re incoherent 1-stars.)
