Hyperion Dan Simmons cover


We’ve got a doozy for you this time around bookclubbers! So much to read, think, and talk about that we have decided to give it two months. Dan Simmons’ Nebula Award-winning novel follows the pilgrimage of seven people to the far away world where they hope to meet a god-like creature. Each have their own story and their own purpose for traveling to the mystic city of Hyperion. Travel with this unlikely band of companions on this incredible adventure to the beginning (or the end) of life as they know it.

This Canterbury Tales-style horror science fiction book has it all. Interstellar travel, archeological expeditions, religious epiphanies, poetic prose, virtual sex, a terrifying blade monster… I seriously can’t think of anything else that you would want Simmons to include.

Book of the Month: Hyperion
Author: Dan Simmons
Available at AmazonAudible, the Strand or your local books store
Next Meeting: Sunday, September 23rd & Sunday, October, 21st

Already read Hyperion? Burn through this novel? Don’t worry, there is PLENTY more where that came from. The follow-up sequel, The Fall of Hyperion, was published in 1990, the very same year as the first installment. We’ll let you make your own conclusions there. Definitely worth your time, dig in!

Enjoy this truly sprawling and complex tale and we’ll see you at this month’s meeting to discuss the first 1/2 of Hyperion.
