I finally got around to The Fall of Hyperion by Dan Simmons too and loved it. People tell me he becomes crazy in later books but oh well. A lot of people like Aleister Crowley too but I couldn't get into his stuff.

Hyperion was okay. Fall of Hyperion is fantastic. The Endymion ones... I'm not sure what to think. They aren't bad, per se, but they are so different from Hyperion, and in the last book he goes crazy with the sick torture porn.


i actually thought the torture was fitting with the themes of the novel, but simmons has always had a penchant for, shall we say, dripping imagery. i definitely rank hyperion above endymion.

i've read a lot of his works, and by far my favorite is The Terror. it's long as hell, but if you appreciate slow, smokey, sumptuous dramatic buildups, this is king. the payoff is both a mindbender and a heartbreaker.
