Matthew | 60 comments Mod
Simmons stated on his website that he started work on a new novella:

"have started work on a fast, scary, unusual short novel or solid novella I call "Vastation". (Tagline -- 'When all the mirrors in your house go absolutely black, your Vastation is about to begin.')

Bondama (kerensa) | 41 comments Oh, I LIKE that idea, Matthew... I've heard of clidomancy, which is when all the doors in a room shut by themselves, but "vastation" is new to me.

Greg | 55 comments Just as interesting is the HYPERION news regarding the Shrike...

"Yes. The Shrike will be back.

(Note and caveat: I've vowed never to write another novel in the Hyperion universe and I never will -- I hate publishing infinologies and the inevitable decline in story telling they entail -- but I said nothing about returning to that universe to write the occasional short story or -- perfect for such a tale -- occasional novella. I've not talked to any publisher about it, but I see a book of five intertwined Hyperion-universe tales with the working book title of Shrike Quincunx.)".

Bondama (kerensa) | 41 comments very, very good -- I've always found that particular universe to be intensely interesting. Simmons' comment reminds of John Varley's early work -- incredible!
