The epic Hyperion duo - credited with reinventing SF in the 1990s - together in one volume for the first time.
The Hyperion books are credited with single-handedly reinventing and reinvigorating SF in the 1990s. A broad canvased, hugely imaginative and exciting SF epic the books draw on the works of Keats and provide a uniquely intelligent and literary approach with cutting edge science, compelling characterisation and edge-of-the-seat excitement. The story is continued in Endymion and The Rise of Endymion which Gollancz will also be publishing in an omnibus volume.
