Recommended Posts

Wendee and Dan finish their discussion of Hyperion, squeezing this in, naturally, between mentions of award slates, convention experiences, and possible new horizons for the podcast itself. [ 1:52:18 || 54.3 MB ]

I liked the way both old and contemporary English was used in the print version. Legend has it tha Tolkien would begin his philology class by recite the first 50 lines of Beowulf in old English in the holes that he would have a small class.

When it comes to retelling the story I found the CGI fantasy movie made me feel cynical and depressed. While Michael Chrictons attempt to make it all scientific, made me dream about heros fighting larger than life villains.

I thought it would be the other way around
