A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

An extraordinary artist with few rivals in his chosen arena, Dan Simmons possesses a restless talent that continually presses boundaries while tantalizing the mind and touching the soul. Now he offers us a superb quintet of novellas -- five dazzling masterworks of speculative fiction, including "Orphans of the Helix," his award-winning return to the Hyperion Universe -- that demonstrates the unique mastery, breathtaking invention, and flawless craftsmanship of one of contemporary fiction's true greats.

  • Human colonists seeking something other than godhood encounter their long-lost "cousins"...and an ancient scourge.

  • A devastated man in suicide's embrace is caught up in a bizarre cat-and-mouse game with a young woman possessing a world-ending power.
  • The distant descendants of a once-oppressed people learn a chilling lesson about the persistence of the past.
  • A terrifying ascent up the frigid, snow-swept slopes of K2 shatters preconceptions and reveals the true natures of four climbers, one of whom is not human.
  • At the intersection of a grand past and a threadbare present, an aging American in Russia confronts his own mortality as he glimpses a wondrous future.

About the Author:

Dan Simmons is the author of the classic tale of terror Summer of Night, which Stephen King praised as "an American nightmare with scares, suspense, and a sweet, surprising nostalgia, one of those rare must-read books! Among Simmons's other works are the critically acclaimed suspense novels Darwin's Blade and The Crook Factory, Song of Kali, Carrion Comfort, Fires of Eden; the awardwinning Hyperion, The Fall of Hyperion, and their sequels, Endymion and The Rise of Endymion. A former teacher, Simmons makes his home in Colorado.
