The multiple-award-winning science fiction master returns to the universe that is his greatest triumph--the world of Hyperion and The Fall ofHyperion --with a novel even more magnificent than its predecessors.Dan Simmons's Hyperion was an immediate sensation on its first publication in 1989. This staggering multifaceted tale of the far future heralded the conquest of the science fiction field by a man who had already won the World Fantasy Award for his first novel (Song of Kali) and had also published one of the most well-received horror novels in the field, Carrion Comfort. Hyperion went on to win the Hugo Award as Best Novel, and it and its companion volume, The Fall of Hyperion, took their rightful places in the science fiction pantheon of new classics.Now, six years later, Simmons returns to this richly imagined world of technological achievement, excitement, wonder and fear. Endymion is a story about love and memory, triumph and terror--an instant candidate for the field's highest honors.

They were ...

Endymion is the third of four books in the Hyperion cantos by Simmons. Hyperion was the first in the saga and full of ambiguities. While I think it was always intended to be continued, in many ways I wish Simmons had not, because those ambiguities are slowly cleared up. This book is the worst so ...
Hyperion. By then the Cantos, written by the foulmouthed poet Martin Silenus, has already become the stuff of legend, and an infamous banned book. The book begins with a frame story of the semi-eponymous Raul Endymion writing from some kind of high tech solitary satellite prison. While he is awaitin...
