This review is from: The Endymion Omnibus: Endymion, The Rise Of Endymion (GOLLANCZ S.F.) (Paperback)
In Hyperion and Endymion, we are treated to a futuristic world of Mr Simmons devising. "The Hyperion Cantos" is brought to its conclusion, in Endymion, with another of Keats great follies and serves us with the food of; a struggling humanity at war with itself, as revelation and armaggedon explode In the forms of an intergalactic catholic revival and the ultimate instrument of destruction. "the Shrike". Clever, entertaining, facinating, apocalyptic and dreadful the end of humankind has come despite our glorious or petty achievements. Breathtaking in its scope and ability to enchant this masterpiece is destined to grow in the minds of mankind for as long as we as a species survive. Genius.
