Hyperion by Dan Simmons

Leah Kiczula, August 4, 2012

This is the first book in an epic 4 book series spanning hundreds/thousands of years (Depending on the character). The get the full pleasure of reading Hyperion, you must read all four. However, the first in the this awesome series, chronicles the lives of and passage of six pilgrim's making their way to the Temple of the Shrike where one will get their wish and rest shall die. Set among interstellar war, outback planetary conflict, and a time that moves forward yet backwards, these tales set the stage the the exciting adventure that is the Hyperion Cantos.

Mistborn: The Final Empire (Mistborn #1) by Brandon Sanderson
Mistborn: The Final Empire (Mistborn #1)

I originally bought this as the box set of the Mistborn trilogy because it was cheap, and being cheap I didn't expect it to be that good. Man was I wrong! This is the first installation in one of the best fantasy series I've ever read. I has everything a Science fiction/Fantasy fan needs to fulfill the contract between reader and writer. Sanderson has effectively created a new universe in which different races and species of people exist, a Universe which I am eager to visit again.

Submit is a student based magazine made at the local art school PNCA. This edition included some awesome artwork and writings from students and professionals alike. With something new popping up on every page turn, this magazine kept me interested not just in the art, but the poetry, short stories and critical writing. A great buy that is an awesome read as well as supporting the local artists!

If you have seen the movie, forget it. This book stands on its own as a masterpiece.
