A stunning tour de force filled with transcendent awe and wonder, Hyperion is a masterwork of science fiction that resonates with excitement and invention, the first volume in a remarkable epic by the multiple-award-winning author of The Hollow Man. On the world called Hyperion, beyond the reach of galactic law, waits a creature called the Shrike. There are those who worship it. There are those who fear it. And there are those who have vowed to destroy it. In the Valley of the Time Tombs, where huge, brooding structures move backward through time, the Shrike waits for them all. 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… (meer)

    Duin door Frank Herbert (corporate_clone)
    corporate_clone: It is difficult not to compare Dune and Hyperion, even though both series have major differences in terms of tone, style and philosophy. Those are two long, epic, elaborate and very ambitious sci-fi masterpieces where religion plays a key role. I would highly recommend the fans of one to check out the other.… (meer)

My son really liked this sf novel, so I gave it a try. I did not like it. It’s a Canterbury Tales-style story of linked stories, where each pilgrim is heading to the world of Hyperion, where the Shrike—a remorseless killer worshiped by one human sect—will allegedly grant one pilgrim’s wish while killing the rest. Despite the very different backgrounds of the pilgrims, their voices merged together for me. Pet peeve: there’s a woman who has “her father’s pistol”—it’s called that literally every time it shows up, which is a lot (in the next volume it’s “the pistol” once, I think), but it does not represent anything about her relationship with her father nor is that relationship otherwise important to her story and she’s had it for many years, so it’s her fucking pistol, thanks.

Not as heavy as Dune

4.5 for me. Very well written. It sort of reminded me of Dune, but I enjoyed this one much more.
It's amazing how current it is as it touches on climate change, artificial intelligence, religion, etc. ( )

Wow. Great writing. I generally don't like shifting perspective stories, but each of the seven stories by the pilgrims was so different and held my attention, all for different reasons. I've ordered The End of Hyperion from the library and can't wait to start it.

Also hoping that this series will hold up through all four books. My experience with some fantasy series, even some good ones (looking at you, Tad Williams) has been that it's really difficult to sustain my interest.

*spoiler alert*

I especially liked the twist at the end, where the bad guys are suddenly maybe not quite so bad.

Looking forward to book 2! ( )

Fricking amazing. tbc ( )

Although well written overall, I feel cheated by the absence of a real ending. ( )

The Hegemony Consul sat on the balcony of his ebony spaceship and played Rachmaninoff's Prelude in C-Sharp Minor on an ancient but well-maintained Steinway while great, green, saurian things surged and bellowed in the swamps below. (Prologue)
The Consul awoke with a peculiar headache, dry throat, and sense of having forgotten a thousand dreams which only periods in cryogenic fugue could bring.

Several translations of the Hyperion series were published as multiple volumes There are no equivalent English volumes. Do not combine these with any works other than the equivalent partial volume in another language.

The ISBNs here are not always correctly matched up to the books. Use both the title and ISBN to figure out what the actual work is. Also note that the title sometimes contains the volume number in the entire Hyperion series (with or without multiple parts).
