Overview

Now, in the stunning continuation of the epic adventure begun in Hyperion, Simmons returns us to a far future resplendent with drama and invention. On the world of Hyperion, the mysterious Time Tombs are opening. And the secrets they contain mean that nothing--nothing anywhere in the universe--will ever be the same.
The Fall of Hyperion records the fall of the Hegemony of Man. Instead of a number of pilgrims telling each other their tales a la The Canterbury Tales, the perspective is that of the reactivated cybrid of John Keats, who somehow dreams the adventures of the pilgrims via his twin.
