    ITEM#: 2636743

    Dan Simmon's first novel, Song of Kali, won the World Fantasy Award, his science fiction novel Hyperion received the Hugo, and the Horror Writers of America awarded him its highest honor for his novel Carrion Comfort. Simmons is also the author of Phases of Gravity, Hugo and Nebula Awards finalist The Fall of Hyperion, The Hollow Man, and two collections of short fiction, Prayers to Broken Stones and Lovedeath. He lives in Colorado along the front range of the Rockies.
    On the world called Hyperion, beyond the law of the Hegemony of Man, there waits the creature called the Shrike. There are those who worship it. There are those who fear it. And there are those who have vowed to destroy it. In the Valley of the Time Tombs, where huge, brooding structures move backward through time, the Shrike waits for them all. On the eve of Armageddon, with the entire galaxy at war, seven pilgrims set forth on a final voyage to Hyperion seeking the answers to the unsolved riddles of their lives. Each carries a desperate hope--and a terrible secret. And one may hold the fate of humanity in his hands.

    • Must have for Sci-Fi/Fantasy fans!

      The Hyperion Cantos (Hyperion, Fall of Hyperion, Endymion, Rise of Endymion) is simply one of the best science-fiction series' ever written. That is not hyperbole either! The characters are flawed but engaging almost immediately. The world Dan Simmons has created is full of mystery, danger, fantasy and action. Prior to purchasing this series, I had read it twice through already. I bought it because I know I will enjoy returning to this world again and again. The price is good here too and all 4 are available.

    • This is an amazing book. Simmons weaves so many ideas into one book, it's simply amazing. However, don't pick up this book unless you are going to read the second. This one ends in one heck of a cliffhanger.
