The Fall of Hyperion

The Fall of Hyperion Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the stunning continuation of the epic adventure begun in Hyperion, Simmons returns us to a far future resplendent with drama and invention. On the world of Hyperion, the mysterious Time Tombs are opening. And the secrets they contain mean that nothing — nothing anywhere in the universe — will ever be the same.

Review:

"Generously conceived and stylistically sure-handed...an unfailingly inventive narative that bears comparison with such classics as Isaac Asimov's Foundation series, Frank Herbert's Dune, and Gene Wolfe's Book of the New Sun." Gerald Jonas, The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Simmons pits good against evil, with the religions of man and those of the machines battling for supremacy. Despite his grand scale, however, he fashions intensely human individuals whom the reader will take to heart." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"In this sequel to Hyperion, Simmons weaves together many strands of a complex plot with lucidity and poetic imagination. Recommended." Library Journal

Review:

"State of the art science fiction....A landmark novel." Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine

Synopsis:

Dan Simmons is a phenomenal talent. Since the triumphant publication of his first novel, the multiple-award-winning author of The Hollow Man has demonstrated equal facility for writing horror; thoughtful, literary fiction; and powerful, world-building science fiction in the best tradition of Frank Herbert, Larry Niven, and David Brin.

Now, in the stunning continuation of the epic adventure begun in Hyperion, Simmons returns us to a far future resplendent with drama and invention. On the world of Hyperion, the mysterious Time Tombs are opening. And the secrets they contain mean that nothing — nothing anywhere in the universe — will ever be the same.
