The multiple-award-winning science fiction master returns to the universethat 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 firstpublication in 1989. This staggering multifaceted tale of the far futureheralded the conquest
of the science fiction field by a man who had already wonthe World Fantasy Award for his first novel ( “Song of Kali” ) and had alsopublished one of the
most well-received horror novels in the field, “CarrionComfort.” “Hyperion” went on to win the Hugo Award as Best Novel, andit and its companion volume,
“The Fall of Hyperion,” took their rightfulplaces in the science fiction pantheon of new classics.
Now, six years later, Simmons returns to this richly imagined world oftechnological achievement, excitement, wonder and fear. “Endymion” is astory about
love and memory, triumph and terror–an instant candidate for thefield’s highest honors.
