Let's all join the Heaven's Gate cult mark 2 - I'm off to get my new trainers and blanket :lol: :lol:

Watch the skies - the aliens are coming - bet they like a bit of poesy :D

What a mind job, I have to say - gives a whole new meaning to the word "anachronism". Nowhere near as good as his Hyperion/Endymion series, but still. Keats also gets a nod in a few places, Simmons stealing a couple of lines from the Nightingale ode and mixing them up with some Shakespearean lines which I have forgotten now. Well, I'll withhold the spoilers in case somebody actually plans to read this book..



Grr. I'm on p.27
You're right about that Hyperion thing, though I am a fan of Proust now as well as Keats.
