August 2018
Hyperion by Dan SimmonsThis has been on my list since 2003. Paused reading it to read Bedlam (so we could talk about Bedlam as a group at WW). Finished: I really enjoyed this, almost nothing happened (it's the background stories of 6 people travelling) but those stories really opened the world up and explored some fascinating stuff (cybroids, AI, ergs, The Shrike etc). Gonna read the next one when I get a chance.
