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.
Praise for Dan Simmons and Hyperion
“Dan Simmons has brilliantly conceptualized a future 700 years distant. In sheer scope and complexity it matches, and perhaps even surpasses, those of Isaac Asimov and James Blish.”—The Washington Post Book World
“An unfailingly inventive narrative . . . generously conceived and stylistically sure-handed.”—The New York Times Book Review
“Simmons’s own genius transforms space opera into a new kind of poetry.”—The Denver Post
“An essential part of any science fiction collection.”—Booklist

Read this, and then the others. You won't regret it.
Once you purchase this book, you will not want to put it down until it is finished. Hyperion is not just some Sci-Fi fantasy story about space or time distortion, government deception or Artificial Intelligence plotting against man, although Hyperion has all of this and more.
Essentially, the book is about seven travelers who voyage across the galaxies to a planet called Hyperion to ask the Lord of Pain for one request.. or to attempt to destroy him. Each of these travelers is a fully developed character that Dan Simmons could have written amazing stories about just as back-history for Hyperion.
If you read Hyperion, prepare to be taken on a journey that stretches over hundreds of years of Hegemony history, spans numerous worlds, encompasses passionate lovers, and is wrought with grief, joy, and in incredible sense that you are not the same person who started this book.
