About Peter Cawdron

Everyone's a writer at heart, whether it's an email to a friend or fully fledged book, we all love to express ourselves in one way or another. For me, writing is a way of exploring ideas, developing concepts. I grow as the characters in my books grow. I hope you enjoy them.

Review by: Jeff Oaster on July 12, 2012 :
Very nice! Serengeti is part of a series of novellas written by Peter Cawdrwon exploring the Rare Earth Hypothesis (aka The Fermi Paradox). For those who aren't familiar with either of those terms, it's really just "is intelligence in the universe an anomaly?" Checking in at around 45 pages, I read this novella in one sitting on a Saturday morning with a cup of a coffee and a cat or two occasionally demanding an ear scratch. It's a quick and easy read, although it does get a big didactic. It's essentially a conversation between two members of a generation ship - on oh who has recently been re-cloned - on a long journey discussing whether or not there is intelligent life out there. Cawdron's writing style certainly has some good old fashioned sense of wonder, and stylistically reminds me of some of Larry Niven's Known Space stories - in other words, top notch stuff. In other words, I will be gladly purchasing his other stuff. Highly recommended!
