@rixx Hope you like it. :)
@rixx aside from hype, what did you think of it? several of my friends have been singing its praises
@gingervitis Hyperion was good, but not great. The universe is well-described, there's a lot more showing than telling. We see the world through five only tentatively connected stories embedded in a larger arc, which is a nice decision, but hampered the pacing a bit. It's a book that became better in my mind a few weeks after reading it.
