The multiple-award-winning science fiction master returns to the universe that is his greatest triumph--the world of "Hyperion and "The Fall of
Hyperion --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.
From the Publisher:
In a story of love, memory, triumph, and terror, written by the recipient of the World Fantasy Award and author of Hyperion, Raul Endymion is selected as the bodyguard to the next messiah and must rescue the girl from the enigmatic Shrike. Reprint.
Author Bio
Dan Simmons
Following his graduation from Washington University in St. Louis in 1971, Dan Simmons moved to Colorado and taught elementary school for many years, while trying and failing to get his fiction published. In 1981 he attended a course for beginning writers taught by the writer and critic Harlan Ellison. At Ellison's urging, Simmons submitted a story to an unpublished writers competition. The story, "The River Styx Runs Upstream", won the contest and, on the same day it was published in Twilight Zone magazine--February 15, 1982--his first child was born. In 1985, his debut novel, SONG OF KALI, a grim horror novel set in the backstreets of Calcutta, won the prestigious World Fantasy Award. Since then, Simmons has racked up an impressive collection of other awards, including the Hugo Award, Locus Reader's Poll Awards, the British Fantasy & Science Fiction Award, and four Bram Stoker Awards. His masterpiece, THE HYPERION CANTOS, a massive work inspired by the works of John Keats and structurally based on Chaucer's CANTERBURY TALES, is credited in many quarters with single-handedly rescuing the sf sub-genre of "space opera" from the disrepute into which it had fallen. THE HYPERION CANTOS is a classic work of science fiction that many fans speak of in favorable comparison to works like Frank Herbert's DUNE series, and, along with its sequel ENDYMION, it is one of the most important works of science fiction written since 1970. Splitting his writing between epic science fiction and spectacularly dense, complex horror novels, Simmons is a genre-straddling author who will undoubtedly remain a powerful force in both fields, even when his work comes to be accepted outside of the constraints of genre fiction.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"...this is an exemplary specimen of an all-too--rare subgenre: literate space opera, replete with believable characters facing hard moral choices." 06/16/1996

Rocky Mountain News (Denver)
"Best science fiction novel of 1995."

Bloomsbury Review
"With 'Endymion', Dan Simmons has written yet another book that is thought-provoking, moving, and unrelenting in its ability to entertain." - Dorman T. Shindler July/August 1996
