Peter mentioned on his book signing tour for night Without Stars that he was working on a new series provisionally entitled "The Salvation Trilogy". Here are a few scraps from his website - these no-longer appear on his Facebook page -
Several people have asked about Salvation, so a (very) brief summary... Set in 2204, an abandoned alien spaceship is discovered 90 light years from Earth, in an uninhabited star system, by the first human starship to reach that far. A team of politically connected officials from various factions, all of whom have their own agenda, are sent to assess if it is a threat. What could possibly go wrong?
I've been in a self-imposed editing exile for the last month or so. But the first round of alterations to the manuscript for Salvation are now done, and have been handed back to my editor(s)... I started volume two, Salvation Lost (part 3 is The Saints Of Salvation), on Thursday.
Not a lot of detail there, but at least we know that he hasn't forgotten about us!!!
