Book review: "The Abominable" by Dan Simmons

I first stumbled across Dan Simmons’ writing around 1990. The book was a science fiction delight called “Hyperion”. It was a science fiction epic, a Canterbury Tales for space and time travel. Since then I have frequently indulged myself in his novels. As an author he leans towards the fantastic, whether it be in science fiction or horror.


  1. You should probably pay your local library a visit and borrow Moby Dick whenever you have enough time and health. Whaling manual or not, it’s simply brilliant prose. Damn, it’s poetry.
    It’s 19th century, so naturally there is a lot of detail everywhere that would be considered “going off on a tangent” today (it would hardly be a “successful” book in 2016 LOL). But it’s like that saying about singers who could sell a phonebook through their voice alone. Melville had that voice.

    1. Will do 🙂 I’ll let you know once I have 🙂
