Worlds Enough and Time, the 2002 anthology by virtuoso author Dan Simmons, contains five short stories. (A few, in truth, are somewhat longish.) Two of the pieces are excellent; the other three are flawed but interesting. 1,698 more words

My review of Dan Simmons' Hyperion, reposted from Goodreads.

Prior to reading this book, I was expecting a great sci-fi read. I neither expected that I would find myself reading Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales: Grim & Dark Space Edition, nor did I expect this to be one of the best books I would ever read. 929 more words
