Next year we’ll not only be celebrating ten years of Tor UK, but also the long and successful career of Peter F. Hamilton who will have been published by Macmillan for twenty years.


Peter’s history with us started with a short story being published in Fear magazine in 1988 which was read by one of our in-house editors. He noticed that Peter had mentioned in his biog that he was working on a novel, so tracked him down and Peter sent us Mindstar Rising – the first in his Greg Mandel series which we published in 1993.



Since then we’ve published approximately a book a year from this prolific and talented author.


While the covers have may have changed over the years, the stories and characters remain timeless and, over the years, his audience has grown making him one of the most widely-read and popular science fiction writers of our time.




We caught up with him recently to have a chat about his writing career and his new novel Great North Road, which was published last month.

    The first PFH book I read was “The Reality Disfunction”, and from that point on I was hooked. I’ve purchased every single one of Peter’s books, and over the last 10+ years, he has become my favorite author.

    My only wish for the future would be to have world-wide publishing companies step into the 21st Century and release Peter’s books world-wide on the same date. As an American, it’s pathetic that I would have to wait until 2013 to read “The Great North Road”. Fortunately there is Amazon.UK. I have purchased every single one of Peter’s books from non-American vendors because they foolishly delay the release. IMO it’s the American publisher’s loss and Pan Macmillan’s gain.

    Keep up the good work Peter!
