Peak's new book is Inherit the Stars.
Recently I asked the author about what he was reading. His reply:
I just started Cixin Liu’s The Dark Forest, the sequel to his Hugo Award-winning novel, The Three-Body Problem. The first book’s scientific detail, recollections of China’s turbulent past, and an ingenious first contact scenario ensured that I would read the second installment.Visit Tony Peak's website.
Before that, I completed all four books in Dan Simmons’s Hyperion Cantos, a sprawling, complex space opera that delved into poetry, the course of human evolution, malignant artificial intelligence, and the role of religion in a galactic civilization—and of course, the time-traveling, enigmatic killing machine, the Shrike.
I’m halfway through Chuck Wendig’s Star Wars: Aftermath, which has been an enjoyable and diverse return to that galaxy far, far away.
